Hi! I’m Devin
Get to know me in 2 minutes:
I’ve learned that it takes heartbreak to reach a whole new level of motivation and awakening. I used to question why bad things had to happen to people, but I truly believe that it’s the heartbreaks in life that awaken us to our truest selves. It’s like peeling back layers we had yet to discover.
Let me tell you a little about my layers.
I’ve experienced a lot of sad things in life. That includes watching my older brother battle cancer for a year, holding his hand while he took his last breath and getting cheating on by what I thought to be the love of my life. I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me when they read about some of my stories. Instead, I hope I can be a strong woman that someone can relate to in their times of need. I don’t think I am any different than most people who also face tough situations.
In fact, I bet right now you can think of 2-3 really tough things you’ve had to face in the last couple years. Somehow through it all, my soul has always chosen to see the good in people. I am captivated by people’s strength and their resilience of overcoming tough times. There is beauty in the fact that every day we walk past 1,000 different stories at any given moment. When you enter a store or take a bus ride, every single person is going through something we know nothing about. I want to rip the covers off of first impressions and help tell real, raw and emotional stories. I want to lead a genuine and kind life and that helps bring light to some of the thousands of untold stories out there.
Let’s dig a little deeper:
If being a night owl was a religion, I would identify most with that. I can read someone’s energy the second they enter a room. I struggle with feeling extreme guilt over most things, but I’m working on that in therapy. If I could drop everything and make money doing one thing: I’d run my own YouTube channel full time. It makes me wonder why I haven’t put more time into doing it for my own pleasure. Music says all the words I could never formulate. I am a lover of amusement parks and water rides. Take me out for tacos and margaritas and I’ll be smiling the entire time. I am a big believer in paying it forward, procrastination and a good cry when you need it.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me. I am peeling back new layers every year. I hope I can help peel back some of your layers and show the world what makes you special.
