My name is Kristin and I am a writer in Boston.

I started my blog share my story with the hope to inspire others to follow their dreams, discover their purpose, pursue their passions, and use their voice.

I used to think of my cross-country moves, career changes, short-lived relationships, and battle with addiction were things to be ashamed of, but I have realized it’s the opposite- recreating myself and gaining strength through the struggles has been an asset.

If it weren’t for these experiences, I wouldn’t have gained lessons to share with others who may be going through the same challenges.

There is power in vulnerability and courage in speaking your truth.

Sharing our own stories gives strength to others, provides comfort, and lets people know they are never alone.

This is my own story of living beautifully.
