Hi friends! I know, I know – It’s been awhile. But, I needed to take a very much needed break from blogging. Everything I was starting to post just felt forced, empty, repetitive and meaningless. I was starting to feel some type of way about blogging – so that is why I decided to take a much needed break, make it a goal to give my little corner a facelift, and come back with a “true to Sybi” outlook on life.
If you’re an old follower – Welcome back(!), but most importantly, THANK YOU for sticking around for this long and for patiently waiting on me to come back to blogging. You guys rock!
If you’re a new follower – Welcome to my little blogging corner! I really hope I don’t bore you, and that you guys stick around for awhile.
Let me introduce myself – my name is Sybianna but most people know me as Sybi. I’m seven years deep with my amazing husband and we made two beautiful boys together – Ronin will be six on Thursday & Thurman turned one a few weeks ago. I was a stay at home mom for five years but decided to end that adventure and enter back into the teaching world – I’m currently an infant lead teacher at a Waldorf inspired school. I am an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and because of my abuse, I suffer from severe depression and underlining anxiety. There are many other “layers” to me when it comes to the topic of abuse, but the most important one is, I’m an activist for sexual abuse survivors and mental health. I’m a lover of life and live for spontaneous adventures. I thrive whenever I am near big bodies of water – duh, I’m a water sign. As much as I love consistency and daily rhythms…I NEED change. I’m an observer, and sometimes that has been mistaken as me being stuck up (but I promise I’m not!). I trust with my whole heart, and when I DO give you that trust (& my heart), it’s very hard for me to let go. I’m big, big on loyalty (but this doesn’t mean that everyone deserves that loyalty). I’m a sucker for 80/90’s pop music, I know 99% of all rap lyrics, give me all the books to read (seriously), Pepsi is my jam but so is orange soda, I could eat my weight in sushi and macaroons, I’m a total tv series junkie, old Disney movies are life, a good ole DIY craft is needed every now and then, Hootie & The Blowfish/Boyz II Men/Hanson can still make me sob like a little baby, naps on naps on naps, cooking & swimming are my therapy, dancing sessions are always needed and living life to the fullest will always be a top priority of mine. I will probably always struggle with depression, but, I know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel to look forward to.
I really hope you guys decide to follow along – I promise there’s so much more for me to share…I’ve had time to sit and reflect on things, and I cross my heart it’s not all “boring” stuff. Kind of.
