I'm grateful. I’m grateful for the people that have come into my life and the experiences that I have gone through to learn what I want and don't want.  I have worked pretty damn hard the past year building something pretty cool. Something that I really never thought would happen. Started from a podcast,, interviewing celebrities and then on to my own online jewelry superstore, catering to the jewelry and fashion needs of thousands of people around the world.

I’m a girl who thought she would be in the pawnbroking world forever. Literally forever. I guess life has many different paths that it can take you on. I chose the one that makes me happier and less filled with drama. I watch myself on TV reruns and say to myself, “Wow, that was a completely different person than who I am today.” Could I truthfully scream in someone's face today? Could I really follow someone into a parking lot and argue? The answer is no. This is the real me. There is huge weight that has been lifted off of my shoulders. There is an enormous sense of freedom.

I hope my journey will inspire some of you to make the changes in your life that you need to make in order to be a happier person.

Trust me... It's a great feeling! Happy Tuesday!
