A Slize of Life

Celebrating everyday life and making it better.

Hi, I am Heidi. Welcome to my happy place. I am a global wanderer journaling my teetering through a divorce, depression, and ADHD. These Slices of Life taught me how to grow, creating a lifestyle free from living like a victim, self-judgment and doubt.
I firmly believe that we all can better ourselves. It will take courage, a lot of work, and unparalleled grit. However, if you can believe in yourself, you will achieve your goals and be the best version of yourself.

Meet Heidi

Sheraton Mural, in process

After twenty three years of marriage, I divorced my husband and lost everything. My love for style and design convinced me to start an international decorative art school, which was very successful. After many years of designing and teaching, I came to the realization that I was getting older. My body ached, inspiration was missing and, finally, I began the search for something new. I always loved to write; I wrote an herb column for now defunct St. Louis Globe newspaper. I decided to try my luck with the ever so popular blogging business because I have many stories to tell, and I can teach and advise where wanted. A life full of trials, tribulation, and experiences good or bad and still surviving.

I resigned from the school and never looked back. However, desperation had set in. I had to learn to deal with getting older, starting over one more time hoping that I would be blessed again. Without school and my students, I felt lost and alone. The change was very tough and occurred slowly. I started to become interested in fashion again and got rid of all my old, dated clothing, keeping only some essential items which I could use as a vital capsule wardrobe, added some sporty and classic pieces, threw away my paint spattered jeans, jogging pants, and ill fitting tops. I adopted a new hairstyle and let my hair take its natural course – going grey. I started again training for a marathon but fell over my four-legged companion and was severely hurt. My world as I knew seemed to come to an end. Two years of pain, speech problems, severe memory loss, sitting on the pity pot, feeling worthless followed. I knew I had to dig myself out of this big hole I had fallen in. Step by step, one day at a time and being grateful that I was getting better brought some sunshine back into my life. Now that I am better again and looking back I realize that I learned valuable lessons that have let back to a happy ad fulfilled life. I learned that you are as strong as you want to be. There are always options you may decide on. Not taking these options will make you ill. Even if you make the wrong decision, you did not stand still but moved forward. There are no mistakes, only learning experiences. These experiences become mistakes if you don’t learn from them and do the same thing over and over.
