We are better strangers then we are family and that’s ok. Often when I post something about my mom not being in my life, I always end with a powerful statement of self growth, truth and forgiveness. We have not been in each others lives for over 34 years and every time she has come back there was never peace. After these times I would find the strength to become wiser and more forgiving of her and of myself, thinking it would be different. The only difference that happened in our world was me and the time I had achieved growth on my own. I have surrounded myself with healing love, the places I moved, the people who have became my family and the pets that guarded my heart with their lives. Every once in a while on my blog posts, I will have someone comment about how they wish my mother and I would be together again, and I thank them for the love they have in their hearts to think if she see’s me she would some how be different. Yet, unhealthy people do not get better not with out a lot of work, that they must choose to do! If they stay unhealthy and become older all they do become worse and more damaging. Anyone who is unhealthy and doesn’t have your best interest in their reason for being in your life, does not deserve to be there. Now to clarify in the past and even sometimes in the present my mother has been in my life, but only in short amounts and usually only a phone call. I have been protecting her from herself and from me for years. When I got old enough to know she was never going to change, after the anger, hurt and frustration of that reality. I learned how to protect myself so much it is as if we live on two different planets. In our society we have this old baggie of “Blood is thicker then water”! But if that blood is toxic to who you are and having the blood in your life will never allow you a true healthy existence and a chance to know what life is with out constant suffering, then that blood has no place in your life. That blood is your teacher and your growth to becoming a better spiritual being. Your realization of these life lesson will allow you to truly LIVE in peace.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nona’s life began as a fairytale. She was the daughter of a famous actress Sue Lyon (Lolita), and NFL player (Roland Harrison). Her father was absent for most of her childhood, and being a bi-racial child, she had questions at a very early age about why she looked so different.
By age 12, Sue remarried, and her relationship with her mother was never the same. Nona was kicked out of her house and by the age of 13 she was taken to a halfway house. That same year her mother placed her in an insane asylum where she stayed for almost 3 months. That kind of betrayal by her mother, a woman she once idolized, broke Nona’s spirit in a way which would take years to recover from. The author currently lives in Los Angeles…
