Elle is obviously my pen name, I am a real person, and these are my real thoughts and feelings. By day I am a regular person, a professional career-driven single mom studying for her Masters's degree. I have the same struggles as everyone in the world. I have to pay my bills, raise my kids, and a home to maintain. 

This blog was designed as an outlet for my creative side, a place to explore my past, my present, and my future. I am someone that seeks beauty in the world. I do not need order in this chaos as this chaos is life; this makes me feel alive. Accepting my weaknesses and still celebrating my passions is all part of my journey. I feel the pain when I hurt; I feel the joy in being loved, I feel the passion in my intimate times. For many people, life is spent waiting for their next paycheck, waiting for the weekend to arrive, waiting for who knows what to land on their doorstep. But we cannot live that way. As each day passes, our lives get shorter, and when I look back at my life, I want to close my eyes and know that I did it all. I chose the path with resistance because I truly believed it would lead to a greater life. 

To my real-life friends that have discovered this blog accidentally or met me through our encounters together, I am truly thankful to have you in my life; your mere existence enriches who I am as a person. It does not matter the role that you play. What matters is that our paths crossed, and every encounter can serve as a lesson.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my ramblings.
