I guess you could call me a master escape artist. Now I know you’re probably thinking Harry Houdini, but I’m more in the realm of leaving the real world and entering into my own little space in my mind. I have always been very skilled at going away to another place and getting away from a life filled with sadness, loneliness, and pain.
It wasn’t until I was 17 years old, sitting in an AP Psychology class that I realized – I was escaping to avoid my reality rather than to embrace my reality and refuse to let it confine me. I would let the places that I escaped to consume my life instead of add substance to it. That’s why I want to create this platform. I have been on, and still am on, a long journey to discovering what fits into a life of purpose, substance, and positivity. To escape my past darkness and break the chains of negativity I have dabbled in many different things to feel out what makes me happy. Writing is one of those things, so writing about the things that I am interested in is definitely a great escape for me. I have begun to actively indulge in the things that I truly enjoy and I would like to share those things with you. My interests lie near and far, but they mostly center around: the arts, fitness, traveling, and most importantly Jesus!
This blog is my escape where I can write whatever my heart desires… and maybe even crack a joke or two. And these posts might even inspire someone else to break free from whatever is holding him/her back. Whether it be a coffee break to escape the stress of work or just needing a pick me up after a hard day, I hope that my escape can become one for you!
