My name is Theresa.
I am the product of my genetics, my environment and my thoughts. Yes, I am a blonde, natural blonde.
I am a survivor of relationship abuse. Although encouraged by others, I have not brought myself to writing in detail about my life altering experience in 2003. I feel that I am past the violence and the many years of unhappiness prior, and I have worked through PTSD symptoms. I have told and retold the story, the dark history, the struggles, the sequence of events to police officers, mental health professionals, lawyers, juries, family and friends.
Years later I recount the event with an expression of absurdity because I continue to learn additional information about my ex-spouse. The absurdity of the circumstances and my foolish trust make me angry. I have chosen to channel my anger into strength, strength to fight a just battle and to carry on.
I choose to carry on within an optimistic light, with vigilance as one of my guides. I also have embraced my enduring sense of humour through observations of lifestyles while working full-time and volunteering with organizations that educate and nurture the love of reading.
In 2011 and under a pen name, I published a bittersweet novel through Smashwords titled The Year of the Rabbit; it’s a novel about Fate, Family and Forgiveness. It contains many themes like family, teenage pregnancy and belief systems.
Thank you for dropping by. You might enjoy more offerings of deep blonde thoughts and creative outlets.
