Visionary Orchid was created in attempts to have a space of healing for myself. For so long, I felt like my voice was silenced, that there was no way I could ever share what was in my head. Because of these thoughts, I suffered and felt incredibly alone. My blog teaches and helps me to open up. I use it to safely revisit trauma to mend the wounds left from dark memories. And here, I do not have to fear judgement, for the person I’m talking to is myself.
With that, I put up my writing publically in hopes that I will reach someone else who shares a similar experience. I hope that the reader feels like they’re not alone in what they’re going through either.
Visionary Orchid is a combination of my passions- writing, helping people, understanding, and learning. Not only do I get to share my mental health journey, but I also get to share bits and pieces of what I’ve learned along the way- all the things that come together to form my life. This ranges anywhere from travel to cooking to herbal medicine!
I use storytelling to help the reader envision what I’ve went through and also entertains. My stories aren’t short. In fact, they are most often longer than five minute reads- unlike typical blogs. They require attention, focus, and care. Some of them are painful to tell, which may make it hard to listen to. Others are light, fun, and exciting. All serve a purpose and have a greater lesson attached.
I want to cultivate a loving, healing space in which we can all share. To not only tell my own stories, but also those of others- to unite us all. I invite you to take a good look at yourself, to do some soul searching, and unpack your baggage. This place is to help open your eyes. Here, I invite you to explore the worlds of self-help; ways out and paths to a healthier lifestyle.
I not only consider myself a writer, but a multifaceted creator. And as the creator of this blog, I feel willing and open to share my journey. And I do it in pieces in each post. I’ve struggled a lot and still do, but improvements do not happen overnight. Healing can be ugly. Everything takes time. As I move forward, I get closer to myself and become even more whole than I was before. Thank you for letting me share my life and thoughts with you.
