I am a just your average small town Southern girl, turned Hawaiian Island girl. A sassy, silly and sweet Filipina, living her life filled with ALOHA. Although, my marriage brought me to the islands, through divorce, I have learned to cultivate my own “paradise”.
When I chose to file for divorce, not only did I close a chapter in my life, as a former military wife, but I decided I might as well write a whole new book. Every page now filled with laughter, authenticity, marvelous adventures and fun.
On January 23, 2011, I saw a life changing TEDTalks video titled “Try Something New For 30 Days”. In that moment, I decided to accept the challenge and face my fear of writing. Without any writing experience, I opened a Blogger account, created my little ole blog “Sweet Cicily” and the rest was history…
Although, my only intent for the blog was to write for 30 days, I had no idea it would change the rest of my life. Almost two years later, I have the awesome opportunity to write for this wonderful website for Divorced Moms across the world.
When I embraced my life fully, I began to realize, just how SWEET it is, so why not share it with the world. I realized, that my life wasn’t over, just because I was divorced, in fact, this was just a new beginning. Turns out, divorce wasn’t so terrible after all, with the right mindset and outlook on life.
I hope you enjoy reading about my post-divorce journey in life and love, as I create my own Happily Ever After. Always providing inspiration, motivation, advice and never beating around the bush. Sweet Cicily is you’re A-Z Guide to living the SWEET life, you have always craved and deserved.
Join me as I go on “50 First Dates”, fall in love with life, explore cleaning living, run races, CrossFit, travel the globe, juggle motherhood with a full-time career, make mistakes, laugh, cry, discover and hopefully inspire you to write your own story too!
Remember, this is your new beginning, to live an authentic, soulful and sexy life.
With Much Aloha,
