Who are you + who do you want to be? 

For the better part of my 27 years, these 2 questions made me want to run. Fast. In any direction other than towards the person asking me. Because avoiding the questions was easier than admitting the truth - I didn't have the slightest clue. 

And the running worked. Up until it didn't. 

I ran so hard and so far that I quite literally out-ran myself. It wasn't until one morning that I finally looked up and realized I didn't recognize the girl staring back at me.

And I was terrified. In that moment I knew I had a decision to make. If I was ever going to make my way back to myself, I had to do the work. I had to ask myself the very questions I'd been running from for so long. 

It was at the beginning of my quest to self-discovery that Blonde Routes was born. 

Like me, the pieces that I share here are a constant work-in-progress. I can't promise you beautifully written scripts, but I can promise you authentic and vulnerable words. And my hope is that they provide a hand when you need it. 

This is my journey of becoming.
