ABOUT ME

Who am I? You know, I was going write this introduction just as a normal company would write it and say wonderful things about myself in someone else’s words, but that’s not me. This page is about giving it to you straight from my heart. Saying things that many of you probably think about but don’t quite know how to put it in words.
Writing has been my passion since I was a little girl. I used to be so angry. I had many things happen to me that most little girls should never have to experience. For a while I didn’t know what to do with the strong feelings I possessed. I became rebellious and didn’t trust anyone. One day I was in a sort of group counseling type of environment (my Mom went through great lengths to get me help, but that’s another conversation) and the lady there was really in touch with spirituality. Not so much God and religion, but being in touch with your spiritual self. She would have us go to a room full of pillows and deep colors like purple and blue and have us lay back and close our eyes. She would play music that was deep but soulful such as Boys II Men, birds chirping, and jazz. She would bring up different scenarios and make us really think and calm ourselves. One day she gave each of us a piece of paper and told us to write whatever was on our minds.
Several days later she asked to speak with me alone. She asked me how I felt when I was writing. I didn’t know how to answer her. I was afraid, I guess, in revealing how I really felt. Without her prying, as so many did, she got me to open up to her. She was an amazing listener as I shared all that I had been through and how writing was an amazing escape for me. The next day she came to me with a large purple mug, some tea, a journal and a beautiful pen. From that day I was hooked!! Writing has always been my escape until the depths of my mind and a therapeutic way from me to make it through! Welcome to the mind of Tiffany!
