The Skin I'm In

The Skin I'm In

Cut from a different thread.

A different Breed.

Ever felt like you just couldn’t be “hip” enough for the in-crowd?

People misunderstood me.  Because I am different. I am unique. I am just Me.

Introspective, reserved, curious, a ball of energy with a soul filled with Life.

Eager to learn, discover, and explore.

The world just seemed so different to me.

I’ve always felt and Believed I can be anything I want to be. Truly.

As I’ve matured, I see how the world will do its very best to have you believe the latter.

I was so conflicted with myself. Feeling so strongly internally about my decisions and the direction I was headed in. And yet allowing external influences to deter me into going another direction. I ultimately gave in to the pressure of conforming to society. I abandoned myself and began to adhere to what others thought “was best” for me. 

I began forsaking my own morals and values… for bullshit.

I sacrificed myself. 

I lost myself.

I forgot myself.

And I became a slave to the “attention and validation of others”.

I have endured many seasons of not being in alignment with my true divine self. This has caused all the confusion, chaos and wandering Aimlessly. Listening to him, her, them and not Me.

Have you ever given in to the pressures of life, or felt you needed to conform? 




I had to break out of this captivity. I could no longer take the agony of sitting in the passenger seat of my Own life.

I was faced with a decision. Break out of this Mental Captivity or remain a hostage.

How does one break the chains?

Sever all ties that are toxic and venomous from your life.

Removing yourself from all the negative and dark energies. 

Clearing up the air and the noise all around.

Seek and obtain stability and peace.

On my self love journey, I learned that the true Victory was getting back to MEI needed to get back in Tune with my inner voice. That STRONG voice within, that’s always Guiding and Directing me. 


The seasons of me living in the shadows of others are dead and gone. I’m flowing to the beat of my own drums. 

I take pride in the Woman I am called to Be!

I’m walking in my own Lane. Living on my own terms!

It’s TIME for You to Break Free and Live Your Truest Life!
