Welcome to Land Undefined; My space for self discovery, healing, and light. I am continually working towards providing more definition in my life. Land Undefined is the open space in my life that has yet to be carved out. It is the territory that needs a little more examination and refinement. I often view life as a journey through both familiar and previously unexplored lands that do not remain static, nor, ultimately, defined. It’s the dynamic and interactive process with one’s environment that provides both clarity and definition, at times, while simultaneously expanding one’s awareness of how little one actually does “know” about anything in the end. The mystique and wonder of life is ever-present, if only we can remain present and mindful in the moment. Thus, the ultimate goal in my writing is to cultivate the space where I can reside more in the present, letting go of any distraction that prevents me from doing so.
If you have chosen to donate to or share my blog, it is truly appreciated! I write because I have found it helps me to process and to heal. I am even more grateful if it helps someone else in their struggle!
My experience and educational background is in therapeutic recreation. I obtained my master’s degree in recreation and sport management from the University of TN, Knoxville in 2014. Most of my employment experience has been working with the geriatric population in recreation programming or social services.
Although I enjoyed my work immensely, the stress of working in the medical field coupled with the disabilities I live with, resulted in me becoming dependent on disability insurance. My hope is to rebuild, using my writing skills, so that I can regain independence and still work, but in a way that doesn’t jeopardize my health.
I live with and write about the disabling conditions: PTSD, Bipolar 1, ADHD, Somatic OCD, and PMDD. I am passionate about spreading awareness and debunking the myths that increase stigma. I also enjoy writing about healing and helping others along their journey towards wholeness. Thank you for visiting my blog!
