When Things Seem to Go “All Wrong”

Today is Valentine's Day, and my 20th Wedding Anniversary. As I look back on the past, and on the past 20 years, I am tempted to feel as if everything has gone wrong. Life rarely goes as we had wished, hoped, dream, or imagined. Things certainly have gone far differently with my daughter, Jamie than even my worst nightmare! When she was born, it was the furthest thing from my mind that she would become addicted to drugs. By the time she was one, it was clear that she was gifted in so many ways, and as the years moved forward, there was no indication she would be...

Disneyland is a theme park divided into eight different lands. Among them, you can visit Tomorrowland or Fantasyland. What you will not find in the “happiest place on earth,” is Victimland. In Victimland, you will be surrounded by like-minded people, so initially, this might seem like a magical place, but unlike lands at Disneyland, Victimland is far from happy. There is only one ride, and it is the Roller Coaster From Hell. The good news is that you get a guide on the singular ride in Victimland. The bad news is the guide will be your Beast. Music is played throughout the land; songs of sadness, loss, loneliness, and...

Losing Your Confidence – And Finding It Again

I was a confident person. It is actually kind of strange because my childhood was sort filled with fear and uncertainty.

For some reason, I came through as a fairly confident person. I am very capable and I could make stuff happen. Then all of a sudden I couldn't! No matter what I did or didn't do; my life was falling apart. It confused and frustrated me. Okay, let me be even more honest...

Misery, You Don’t Get My Company

I am super excited to announce my 4th book, "Misery, You Don't Get My Company: Finding the Courage to be Happy Again." This is my first book since my daughter Jamie (a.k.a. Jordan) was murdered in 2016. This has been, by far, the toughest book I have written. Reading, re-reading and editing requires going through all of the details over and over. It has also been healing. My hope and prayer is the this book will guide you and inspire you to choose courage! No matter what you are going through, you can find the courage to be happy again. I did. ____________________ Valerie Silveira is an Award-Winning Author, Empowerment Coach,...
