Meet Lindsey Nicole aka. Mama
I believe in relentless optimism and resilient joy.
I never imagined my child would be diagnosed with ASD (Autism).
It was hard to see the blessing in the label at first.
There have been a few things I've been through that seem like they would not be the kindling for joy.
I have faced, divorce, domestic abuse, depression. debt and the diagnosis of my son with Autism, all culminating in one life changing year, when I chose Joy my life opened up in ways I had only dreamed.
I didn't know it then, but as I walked through each valley, there was a fire being built within me.
It has brought me a life full of warmth and light.
I could not imagine how many lessons I would learn along the way, as I experienced life in all its devastation and glory.
Most of all, I found great joy in the process of slowing down, listening more, and following the whispers of my soul.
I know there is always JOY in the JOurneY.
We just need to look for it!
Dancing Saved my life.
There was a time in my life when I did not know joy, but I found it when I started country line dancing.
