Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. 🌻
I am Natalie, often known as Nat or Nattie.
I’m a 25 year-old Investment Specialist.
Wife to my best friend.
Fur Mama to Gunner 🐈 and Lexi 🐕.
Jesus is the reason I’m still here.
I have big dreams of traveling to the corners of this beautiful Earth and changing the world for the better. 🌎
I volunteer as a Crisis Counselor for the Crisis Text Line.
I have battled Bulimia and self-harm since I was 14 years old, and the war for my soul and my body still wages within me. Recovery is a journey that is never really over.
This blog is simply an outlet for me to share my hopes, dreams, ideas, struggles, adventures, and lessons learned. There is still such a stigma behind mental illness, especially self-harm. More than anything I think it’s all based on people misunderstanding, or not taking the time to understand, those who can’t help but handle their feelings differently than everyone I else. My hope is that one day my words might encourage even one person, or help someone see past another’s scars to who they really are.
