DETAILS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
Why is the topic so important?
What we do in our everyday experiences brings about important life lessons. We’re living inside the topic each day we inhale anew breathe. In These days and times, toxicity has settled in the environment. Just think about it: every day we wake up we’re on the battlefield fighting a war. And just feeling where there’s: good against evil; sons against fathers; daughters against mothers; nations against nations; drugs against diseases; and the list goes on and on.
So who is Nina Norstrom, the writer, the author, and the volunteer?
Norstrom a native of Illinois, grew up in a suburban town outside of Chicago. She was a Daddy’s girl and her family was bonded by Christian values.
She has an extensive work history in the public sector. As an added element to her career journey, she taught in the school system. She has been writing for over twenty-five years. Having experienced a mass of tainted relationships, writing therapy helped her find solace. The story, Not Blueprint: It’s the Shoe Prints that Matter, A Journey Through Toxic Relationships, is a representation of her growth and signifies a milestone in her recovery from toxic relationships, to the transition of non-toxicity.
Norstrom says, “Medically, the whole program of journaling was a healing process. It has helped to shape and transform a toxic journey into a prescription for healthy emotional wellness.”
Since going through the journey, she says, “We all go through stuff in life (the good, bad, and ugly). When you think there’s no way out, don’t give up.
Parenthood can be such a wonderful and amazing experience. When growing up, one just doesn’t think about the task of taking on a parent ship role. #Parents are expected to be responsible and accountable, as we teach our children the many lessons life will bring. Our children are gifts from our Father above.
HE even sends us these gifts without a name. So we have to name them, raise them, love and nurture them till . . . they too find their way to adulthood.
Yeah, there are all kinds of joy in being a parent . . . whether acting as a mother or father. Life is just so full of wonders!

Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
On March 24, 1971, I bore into this life a little baby girl. I watched the cycle blossom as she began embracing each development—babyhood, childhood, and adulthood. As a mother, I didn’t have much to provide. Yet, I gave her that which was given to me: love, joy, happiness, and . . . We struggled endlessly to stay above the water. The journey we traveled took us across rough roads, around in circles, up steep hills, down deep valleys, and through high mountain chains. And with her strapped over my shoulders, I’d thought . .
