Hi, I’m Myndee. I’m a self-love evangelist.
About me pages are the worst.
Everyone expects you to post about your fantastic life, your interesting hobbies, and of course include some witty phrases. That’s not what you’ll find here.
I had a pretty messed up life. I’m sure I’ll sprinkle the details in throughout different posts, but suffice it to say, I basically raised myself. I learned very young that I was a burden to the adults around me, and if I was a burden to the people charged with raising me, I was surely a burden to the rest of the world.
Fast forward 30 or so years- I was married to a great guy, I had three children in three years (I don’t recommend that, by the way), and life was good. Well, good enough. I mean, it was okay. But really, it wasn’t.
I wasn’t okay.
I wasn’t me.
I didn’t even know who me was. In 2017 my world came crumbling down and life as I knew it was over. It was a difficult and deeply personal time that I am not able to discuss yet. Though one of the most difficult summers of my life, I am thankful for those dark days.
Without them, I wouldn’t have found the light.
After struggling, crying and working my way from a place of self-loathing to self-love and self-acceptance, I want to help others along their journey.
Okay, but who am I?
I am a social media manager who spends every day juggling work, three kids, two cats, one husband and a tiny house. Most days I fall short in at least one area. My husband is a champ. He’s not a “big help” as much as a co-captain, and I couldn’t run this ship without him. In my free time, I write. A lot. I journal. I write books. I write blog posts. I write for clients. I write letters to my children. I do all that, yet I struggle to call myself a writer because I struggle with imposter syndrome.
Seriously, I am the worst self-help expert.
I have a passion for helping others. I didn’t know exactly what my help would look like until I realized I was working on total and complete love and acceptance of who I am. After seeing the benefits that came along with self-love, I knew I had to share it with the world. So here I am, telling my story.
Who am I? What qualifies me to help you?
I ask myself that often. I have no good answer. I do not have a degree in psychology; in fact, I don’t have a degree in anything because I bounced around in college studying everything from Religion to Mass Communications to Weightlifting (I thought it would be an easy A…it wasn’t). I don’t have this all figured out. I still struggle. I still fall short. I still have a lot to learn. I am no more special than you are. What I offer though is my deep seeded desire to help others learn to love themselves.
I want to offer you my battle scars as breadcrumbs to help you on your journey.
I want you to be fully you, and the best way I know how to help you is to be fully me. I hope you’ll stick around and get to know me. I’d love to get to know you (in a non-creepy way). Chat with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
