Hi. I’m Alysha aka Lysh. A first time stay-at-home while also in online-school mama trying to figure it all out. Never I’d be saying those words, at least not all as a simultaneous act. I guess you could say that 5 years ago I was living in a state of bliss. Not that I’m not totally blissed out now, it’s just a total different level of bliss. I had just moved back to my home town. I lived somewhat of a nomadic style life, living with my dad, rent free, but traveled every few days exploring California. My job at the time as a traveling server/bartender & new restaurant trainer also contributed to that. At that time I lived to party and wanted the full on (at the time not so popular) van life. Wellllllll, a few crappy relationships, a sudden loss, a DUI and some really great friends and experiences were keeping me alive. I was having the time of my life…while in the background not really dealing with a lot of childhood trauma, depression and anxiety that I had so suddenly bolted from. Oops, lol.

Such a free mindset has to have it’s faults, right? There was a turn in my life which blossomed for many reasons. One filled with darkness, but an incredible amount of light. A sort of change in me that pushed me to be greater, to understand that life is short, but also caused me to really sink my feet into what my future was going to look like, and brought me this positive but overbearing anxiety I had never experienced before. Anyway, shortly after I found someone that helps calm my storms, ease my anxieties, and to stands alongside me today while I become the best woman I can. A mother. A partner. A Montessori Educator in Training. A Stay-At-Home-Mom. A creative. An online thrift shop owner and all with seriously so much more to discover.

Easy to say, like many of us, I have a story to tell. Or plenty. I have lessons to teach, feelings to overcome, and strategies to share. I’ve always had a passion for writing, sharing my feelings/experiences through the words that dance through my mind, random poems written on napkins or the back of text books. All throughout high school I was writing a book that never seemed to end. I’d share snippets with friends who’d encourage me to continue. I guess I would have thought I’d have this blogging thing way more locked in and consistent like my younger years. But nope, life is wild, battling through depression and anxiety is wild, but I have learned that taking one day and one left behind hobby at a time is totally worth it. So, thanks for being here.

If we all understood feelings and emotions maybe we’d all just get along.
