Welcome to i’m fighting shame. A space devoted to my personal journey to fight the shame that has threatened to keep me from experiencing a meaningful and joy-filled life. This space is also devoted to highlighting and discussing the shame that is rampant, an epidemic, really, in our society. I am really glad you are here.
My name is Valerie. I am a mid-western girl, born, raised, and living life in Indianapolis, Indiana. I have many loves, first and foremost: God. Next is my wonderful husband, Nich. Tied for third would be my cat, Bogey, my family, and friends-who-I-have-adopted-into-my family. Running close behind third is my love of cooking and baking, reading, traveling with my wonderful husband, running, yoga, chocolate, and whiskey.
I invite you to come along with me on my journey as I fight shame.
