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.
There is no life without a relationship of some form or another. Don't believe it? Look around! To breathe brings a relationship with life. And when touched by a disease, its manifestation gives us a relationship with toxic invaders.
So you think your life is the only one full of #toxicity? Think again! Toxic #relationships invade so many people. We're living in a toxic environment. A place where you can lose your self-love. You'd be amazed at the #bubbles that explode from behind these pages.

Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
We are living in turbulent days, and our culture is clouded with a mass of toxicity. During our lifetimes, every one of us experiences some form of toxic relationship. These relationships aren’t necessarily with people. We can have toxic relationships with alcohol, animals, battlefields, diseases, drugs, environments, religions, and even our own emotions. A toxic relationship, in any form, can destroy us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. But it can also offer us the opportunity to learn and grow. This is my story of those lessons learned and the shoe prints they have left on me. I’ve been a daughter, sister, mother, friend, worker, wife, and . . .
