I created this space as a place to share my thoughts through a creative medium with the world. The name “ImpurrfectLife” manifested out of my love for cats as well as my acknowledgement that life is not without its flaws.
As a pet parent going through the grieving process, I felt discouraged that I was unable to find an abundant source of places where I could see others relate to my experience. With the loss of my second cat Dusty, who I had for almost 14 years, I admittedly also let myself go. I did not make myself a priority, was slacking big time on exercising and eating right. After experiencing pet loss your heart feels like it has a big hole in it. You know life will go on, but it’s just not the same. I know I’m not the only one to feel this way. Life is hard and losing a pet (family member) is even harder, but you eventually have to move forward.
That’s what this blog is about. It is for animal lovers who are going through the grieving process and trying to find normalcy again. It’s about moving forward after life throws you a curveball. Impurrfectlife.com manifested out of my own journey as a pet parent experiencing loss looking to reclaim joy, motivation and comfort. Life’s not perfect, so we shouldn’t expect perfection. Really and truly I think more people can identify more with authenticity and imperfection as opposed to a false sense of perfection. We may not be flawless but what we can do is make the most of everyday for a better quality life experience. That’s what I intend to do. The world needs more positivity!
I’ll be sharing my own experiences to find joy in everyday life, try different tips to achieve better health, and share ideas for moving forward. It is my wish that by sharing my journey other people get inspired.
