I cannot even begin to tell you how many weeks it took me to choose the blog name, Turbulent Sunshine. I knew what I wanted to write about for a long time, but I could not think of a name that would encompass everything. After several list of ideas, hours of looking at different word combinations online, and consulting with family members I chose Turbulent Sunshine. The definition of Turbulent is characterized by conflict, disorder, or confusion; not controlled or calm. This is my life. There is always some type of conflict, whether with myself fighting Anxiety or other stresses in life. Just because there is chaos, it does not mean that life is necessarily negative, which is why I chose Sunshine as my second word. The definition of sunshine (other than obvious sun shine) is cheerful or happiness. Everything that I have been through has challenged me and made me grow. With every heart breaking moment, I have found happiness in times to follow. In an airplane you feel turbulence, and if you are like me you are convinced you are going to die, but you don’t. You survive, you move on with your life when you get off the plane, and usually you find happiness, whether it be in the arms of a loved one or an amazing vacation. This is the story of my life. Just when I think I cannot take another second, I find a reason, a purpose, and there has always been happiness after each storm.
Please understand that this is my first time writing a blog. I plan to write about my experiences, recipes, and anything else that comes to mind. My hope is that by sharing my stories I can give someone else hope despite life’s turbulent storms, there will be sunshine; there will be happiness.
I hope you enjoy!
