Taking lemons & making lemonade.

Challenging experiences are something we all encounter throughout our lives. What sets one person apart from the rest is how they react to each situation. While some keep sucking on the sour-bitter taste on the lemon, others make use of it and make lemonade.


This site will explore the many challenges we face and how to overcome them. Some primary themes include:

  • How to live fully through challenges
  • Dealing with new and old hurt
  • How to be mentally healthy
  • Learning to forgive yourself & others
  • The important of self-care
  • How to reach your personal goals
  • How to take back your power

Looking forward to walking on this journey with you!
