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.
Over three decades, Norstrom has unmasked the levels of relationships:
pain; abuse; emotions, diseases; work environments; trauma;
and its poison of unforgiveness. In the artistic world, it is those literary creations that demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered - from darkness to survival, even her release from incarceration.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of unhealthy relationships. Through her experiences, Norstrom has encountered a complete metamorphosis ─ releasing one identity for another. Living inside this transitional lifestyle she states, “I see myself as that long-blooming, rich flower waiting to attract those butterflies. It is there, I’ve come full circle having realized the dangerous effects of toxicity."
Toxicity has been around for centuries. It ain’t nothing that just existed . . . it’s only gotten worst. Way back when, those toxic emotions were heavily brewing and striking hard when things went awry. There was no question, women knew what to do and was a “#force to be reckoned with.” When it came time for those emotions to erupt, that would be all she wrote. Their actions said it all! Of course, if you didn’t know about ‘em there women, better ask someone . . .
Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
. . . took his clothes off the hangers, piled them in the middle of the floor, cut the lights, and struck a match to them. Then . . . in the dark and watched the bonfire. In an instant, . . . Betty Broderick moment—just like when she set her man’s clothes on fire. Or was it the Angela Bassett scene in Waiting to Exhale? Paying back her man was definitely a moment of rage. Then again, maybe it was a Crystal Mangum moment. She’s the Durham, North Carolina, mother of three who was accused of setting her man’s clothes on fire in a bathtub. In any case, each one of their actions made a clear statement: You hurt me, I’ll hurt you back! So, really, those rising hormones aren’t anything to mess with.
