Hi. I’m Celeste, author and creator of Skyewaters, a pen name I chose when I decided to start this blog. I chose it because of this picture I had. See how the Angel looks as if she’s playing with water…?
It, together with the photo below, speaks to my soul…True to the meaning of my name, I have always felt drawn to the heavenly beauty, which surrounds us.
Here are some of the reasons why these mean so much to me:
- The night sky. When I was younger, I would sit outside and just marvel at the stars in the sky. I could get lost in them forever and imagine a happier life far away from this earth. You could call me a dreamer…
- The ocean. It resonates with me in so many ways, I just love the sight and smell of it. Beautiful, powerful and calming to my spirit…it’s the essence of me. I feel a close lingering affiliation whenever I am at its side.
- Angels. I love the thought of having a guardian Angel at my side. Nothing is more beautiful to me than knowing they have my back no matter what. Do I believe in them? Well, yes I do…my name means Heavenly coincidentally 🙂
- God (most important of all). I firmly believe in the existence of a higher being, the Trinity. Having been through what I have had to endure in my life, I don’t see how I can not. There is no way I would have been able to survive or come out of the times in my life, which have defined who and what I am, without Him. Ultimately, it has shaped and determined the purpose of my life.
Much of these experiences are shared on this website with you, my dear reader. My aim is for it to become my legacy…my mark on this world but more importantly, a place where my children can connect with me (long after I’ve gone).
I’m just an ordinary person with views, ideas and opinions on things that make this world go round. Expressing myself doesn’t always come easy but when it does, I write it down here. I have a husband, 3 kids and some lemons handed to me on the journey of life…Some have been surprisingly pleasant tasting (probably more of an orange) and others NOT!
At the age of 29, I was diagnosed with an incurable condition called Hydrocephalus. From this point forward, my life took on a new journey filled with many challenges but also new beginnings. It was also a point in my life, where my faith blossomed from one single flower to a garden of unending beauty. At times beautiful buds will blossom and other times, they will just wither away and die as the tides of emotions sweep over me and life happens. In the end, I stand strong with God as my helper.
Realizing what a lonely world Hydrocephalus creates, feeling lost, confused and helpless, I wrote my book, Hydrocephalus: Floating Faithfully, with the aim of raising awareness. My intention is to update my story with a sequel to this book however, most of it is shared on this site.
I enjoy motivating people and making them feel good about themselves and life in general. When I see someone else affected positively by something I’ve said or written…Well, let’s just say, it nourishes my soul in return.
Have a read around…you might just find something you’ve been looking for.
Thanks for your time!
