What this blog is about.

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Shayla.

I am a woman.  I am also a wife and mother.  I am passionate about women's issues.  It breaks my heart to see and hear about women not living up to their full potential, letting everyday life beat them down.

I was raised by strong women.  Thanks to that lucky break, I have given tons of great perspective, much of which I have shared with friends and some acquaintences.

It often boiled down to one simple fact: 

You have to take care of yourself, before you can take care of anyone else.

It took me a while to get it, but I think it's starting to sink in.  My fulfillment will feed the other parts of my life - in a positive way.  Being a wife and mother does not mean my dreams have to take a back seat.

I think the lessons they've shared and the one's I've learned in the because of my own personal brand of bad judgement can be of value to others, which I why I'm sharing them here with you - sometimes by way of an anectode, other times it will be bitter, like medicine.

We are all on this journey together, trying to find our way.  It is my sincere intention and hope that this blog lights your path, if even if only a little bit.

Thank you and I hope you enjoy Brick Sandwich.
