Dayna.....Yup That's Me!
I was a wild and rebellious teen. I was a "metal-head chic" that wore all black and leather. I played guitar, hated being told what to do and how to do it. I wanted to sleep all day and stay up all night. I so wanted to pursue a music career and spend every day hanging out with my friends and play guitar in a band called, "Skeletal Onslaught".
I fought so hard for everything that felt *True* to me. I fought for my freedom to wear what I wanted...to listen to what I wanted....to spend my time doing what made me sparkle.... I fought so hard to just be *Dayna*.
My children will never know such a struggle to be themselves. I will always fully embrace their interests and passions. I will always respect what they would like to wear and how they want to have their hair. I will buy them the music that they are drawn to. I will always encourage them to *Be Themselves* and honor and respect them.
I wouldn't change a thing about my struggle as a teen. It helped me become the open-minded person that I am today. I fought hard for my *Freedom of Expression* when I was a teen and in turn, I earned it for not only myself but for my kids too! I am so grateful for my past, my present and my children's future.
