An Introduction to my fabulous and chaotic world!

My name is nichole my family and friends refer to me as princess :), nikki , (that is my preference) and sparkles. Sparkles originates from my late father in law who upon meeting me for the first time and ( every time there after) noticed i wore glitter in some way shape or form or i wore something that sparkles. From there on out i was branded and blessed with my new nickname, SPARKLES! I also have been called recently, Angel and The Italian princess as well as Jersey!!

Today i am at the young age of 47 okay so that’s middle age but 40 something in 2020 is young, hip, fulfilling, stressful and chaotic, but that,s okay everyday is a blessing! Life is beautiful although it comes with many obstacles, challenges, and immense struggles but mostly and importantly life is full of rewards. Myself i went back to school in my 30’s to earn a degree in the medical field. After countless hours of studying with a school age son and two toddlers I became a certified medical assistant and worked in dermatology for over 8 years. I assisted in surgical procedures and met some wonderful patients. I can honestly say it is amazing how your patients become such a part of you and your life, they touch and embrace you daily it is a very rewarding career. Loving and leaving this career was a very hard decision one which i had to make after a lot of thought, consideration, and circumstances that were out of my control. But more on that later. I have three beautiful children and two of the most precious grand babies! I’am the oldest of 5 siblings. Some of which make life so much better and are there if i need them and likewise. One brother and 3 sisters, many wonderful nieces and nephews, Godchildren, and so many and i mean MANY extending family as of a Italian descent, there are so many cousins and second cousins i could write a page on just that. God has blessed me. I also love the color pink, love pizza, fine red wine, sunflowers and my dad. In my spare time i enjoy writing poetry and blogging. Writing has become one of the strongest passions i have ever had!

My Oldest son is 23 he is not only successful but strong, intelligent, and a handsome man who also happens to be a wonderful father. This boy i raised has became this man. In the blink of a eye i went from changing diapers to him receiving his bachelors in a year and striving to become a investment banker. At this time he is raising two toddlers with the help of his pretty finance while going to school, interning, and working part time this is truly success at its finest. I am a proud mommy to say the least!

My second son is 17 going into his junior year. He is a wonderful, beautiful young man. He has had to work very hard to achieve his goals he has severe ADHD making things very challenging for not only him but the family. It has been a long hard road and one we are still riding. ADHD shows no mercy thus one of the reasons i left my career. More on that later as well. If i can say one thing with the heartbreak that ADHD can cause my son is much more then ADHD . He is charismatic and loving and his goal is to own his own business he has thrifty knowledge on buying, selling, trading, i forsee a luderative business in his future. And let it be known when he smiles and is happy it fulfills my heart.

Then there is my little pretty princess my only daughter. She is a angel with a teenage attitude( yay 15). Both intelligent and wise above her years she is going into her sophomore year with honors she works very hard to uphold a high GPA. My daughter is about success and academics and as many sports as she can play. Since she was 5 she has wanted to be a surgeon i can see that the path she is on is one of success and admiration.

My grand babies are 4 and 1 let me say they are the epitome of perfection! My life is full of joy since God blessed me with being a mom-mom.

We have a dog named harley and a hamster named nugget as well as 12 fish. Needless to say i’am not a big dog lover but i am however a big animal lover. I have my own little zoo πŸ™‚

My goal for this blog is to talk about life, love, divorce, career challenges, kids with challenges, esp. but not limited to ADHD. Being 40 middle age but fun, flirty, fantastic, a working mother and just holding up in today’s balancing act juggling all of the above. There are also many more topics, life experiences some good and some that will definitely intrigue you. This is my first time sharing my life i hope to take you on this journey with me. Hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

      1. Explain dark? For me a good blog is about honesty and being the person you are..not hiding or faking for the sake of others! When I started this it was to get my poetry out there and be as real and as honest as I could. Meaning the good the bad as long as it was real!! 😊

      2. Because I suffer from depression, some of my posts are the raw and uncensored versions of the things I feel about myself. When I first began blogging several years ago, I had not outlet for how I felt and I found writing them down to be a great release. So, I continue that here. Everything I post is authentic (excluding an unfinished fictional story I began a few years ago).

        And I agree…real is truly what matters.
