ABOUT 

CAKE

In the summer of 2018 I found myself as a stay at home mother with toddler twins, married to a man who was secretly recording me in the bath. Only weeks prior my mother had been newly diagnosed with lung cancer, a terminal disease.

 

I WAS STEPPING ON LANDMINES OVER AND OVER.

Traumatized and with no idea what to do, I picked up a pen and started writing.

And, I wrote. I didn't stop writing. 

I journaled almost daily the raw feelings and experiences I was going through as I tried to maneuver my way out of this hell I had found myself in.  Starting a week after I found out my spouse had betrayed me, I chronicled my reality as I knew it.

As I wrote, I was able to start making sense of what was going on in my world. It also helped some of my past traumas from childhood resurface which later helped me face my shadows in my healing journey. 

Journaling has been therapeutic for me - it uncovers those things I have buried deep within me and I have been able to put together the puzzle pieces of who I am at my core.

I started this site with the intention to give hope to those who find themselves betrayed or traumatized. My raw journals aren't always pretty but as you read, you can see the transformation in me. Healing is hard but it's obtainable and when you choose to become the master of who you are, you will find the gifts at the end of the journey worth it.
