Buen dia mi amor! Welcome to my site. I am beyond excited that you are here! My name is Dainyell, most commonly referred to as Dani. I recently turned the big 3-0 and found myself in the midst of my “what happens next” crisis. Then COVID-19 hit! Talk about a crash and burn! 2020 is a big year for me, I moved across the country and away from my family for the first time EVER! I turned 30 (March 28th) and I’m in the middle of planning a wedding. Normally, I seem to have it all together or at least I put on a good front. But lately, I have been going through a lot mentally and found myself in a really unhealthy place. I didn’t have the motivation to do anything, I was stressed to the max, my faith was lacking, my relationship was in limbo and I cried daily for almost 3 weeks straight. I just couldn’t seem to get out of my FUNK. I truly was running on “empty”. And finally I had enough! I decided that I needed an outlet to decompress. I’ve always enjoyed journaling and felt that it provided me with the opportunity to write about my dreams, my fears, my hopes, my accomplishments and even my failures. Then I started thinking… I can’t be the only one feeling this kind of pressure and thus D.fineD was created.
My hope is that I can reach women like me by providing a platform to discuss our “where do we go from here”. I want to help women “define” what it is that we really want and discuss possible roadmaps to get there! I will open up tremendously about my personal insecurities and struggles because that’s the only way I know how to connect. I hope that my transparency can help someone else feel that they aren’t in this alone. Common topics will include:
- professional life
- the overall well-being of the modern-day woman
Because face it.. we are not our mothers or our grandmothers and even though some issues are timeless things are much different. So have a seat, buckle up… this is going to get REAL!
