My First Post

Hi Friend,


Let me start by saying NEVER in a million years did I think of all people I would ever have a blog. My perception of blogging clearly has been stuck in the early 2000s, and that's my bad. I understand now that it's important to share our experiences with each other in hopes that we all might grow from it.



I plan on using this as a creative space where I can share my thoughts, passions, and whatever else I feel like on any given day.


Right now, I want to use this platform to let you know a liiiiiiittle bit more about myself. Over the past 4 years, everything has changed for me. Moving to LA was no small feat for a girl, her mom, and a beat up 2004 Ford Focus. We almost died, but that's a conversation for another day...


I've gone from a roach infested one-bedroom, one-bath apartment that I shared with a roommate (a lot to unpack here, trust me) to a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment with parking -- YES, PARKING -- and a balcony that I share with my Savannahs, Ghost and Storm. Not quite rags to riches, but your girl doesn't have bugs, of any kind, in her humble abode anymore, and for that I'm blessed!


I am a strong woman that has been through some sh*t. Every day is not always a good day. It's important to talk about the lows, "uncomfortable" topics, and the hurt because that's how we learn. That's how we do better. All I want is to do better for this world, but TRUST ME when I say I have made mistakes and will continue to make mistakes. Doing better doesn't mean being perfect, it means doing everything you can to leave a positive impact while we're here.


I feeeeeeel like this is a good place to stop, so that's what I'm going to do. Let's do this.


Love,

Coco
