Who is Lady Stilts...?

Some of you may know me already. For those that don't, My name is Mica (pronounced mee-ka). Welcome to my blog! I am 25 years old and from Southern California. I currently reside in Orange County. This is my first attempt at mainstream blogging. However, if you bare with me until the end, I think this place will be as rewarding for you as it is for me! Let's just start off by showing you the face behind the screen; the eyes behind the lens:

I started my journey online over ten years ago. I used it as a way to reach out and connect to people so I felt less alone. To my surprise, my following grew more than I could have ever expected.  People started telling me that I was helping them. Me, the one who was desperately trying to connect with others and find help for myself! These connections have drastically changed what I want to do with my life. Discovering that sharing my story and feelings helps others has opened my eyes to a  new wonderful world. A world where I can help others find the same kind of inner peace and self love that I seek. And thats why I've started this blog! My dream is for this to be a safe and creative space.  You can expect to see all the magic in the making ;) 

Ladystilts.com will be a very interactive venue. I want this to be a place where we all can learn and grow together. I want to get more personal with you, and I want you to get more personal with me. We are all in this together!  I will be making posts about self-help, how-to's, tips and tricks, life lessons... you get the idea. In addition,  I'll also be doing giveaways, collaborations , interviews, contests, guest bloggers, posts specifically aimed towards advice or answering any questions you may have, and anything else my tornado of a  brain can come up with. You guys are really in for a treat! You'll also be able to explore my growth as a photographer by checking out my work in the photography section!  I've already got my first gallery up for you guys to check out!

I've been through... a lot , and I've learned that the best way to learn how to swim is to be thrown into the deep end and left to figure it out yourself (okay maybe not the BEST way, but it's how I learned and I turned out...alright).  My life experience has taught me how to navigate my way through the eye of the storm and how to keep my head above water when things get deep. I am here to advocate; to help you learn the best way  to swim. I am not here to make all your problems magically go away (although I wish I could!). I want to provide you with some tools that I have found help me and share the experiences that have molded me into the human I am today.

 To all who take this journey with me, welcome! Whether you've been on it with me the full ten years or you're just joining, I appreciate you all. Don't ever forget that when you feel like you're walking through the fire alone, you don't have to. Just pop in from time to time to be reminded that you are not alone, and I am in your corner!

There are so many wonderful things in store for this blog, and I hope you are as excited as I am, little doves.
