I wish life was all butterflies and rainbows. Laughter and hiccups. Long hot summer days and endless good times. It isn’t though. If you’re like me, the awakening to this was probably rude. Probably like a right hook that knocks you out and completely rocks your world and instead of little birds chirping in a circle, it's shattered dreams and broken promises. We are unbelievably human because we can’t cure our humanity. But we can celebrate it!
You Are Unbelievably Human!

I want to turn pain into beauty and together have a wonderful journey from the bottom of despair to the top of self-love and acceptance. It upsets me how some relationships chip away at our self worth as well as bad days. These bad days turn us into zombies, and zombies into self harm, and self harm into suicide. It upsets me that suicide is now on the rise in America, specifically among people in their 20's and even younger. Where is the love that prevents this? Where are the hearts that mend the broken? It reminds me that this is not a distant reality. It reminds me this statistic is me. It’s my friend’s sister. It’s my friend who just had too many bad days in a row. No more.
I am Liv! But you can call me Liv Love ,cause that is exactly what I want people to do (true story). Live [out] love and love living [being alive]. It’s my pleasure to host Unbelievably Human, a web series and website that will call on the power of expression and art to heal. Unbelievably Human (UH) will also use these mediums to give voice to all that guck that bubbles up inside us and tries to take us down-- you and UH together.
I believe that life is universal. Together, we will find many different ways to share our stories in ways that promote expression, communication, and art. Some of these methods include a collection of looks of the day, DIY's, poetry, spoken word and a critical but comical looks at pop culture. All of these things will provide us with an outlet to deal with the guck. l believe that the expression of pain through poetic and artistic means is freeing; un-isolated pain becomes a collective identification of the human experience. I live for this, and it’s what I do! Somehow showing how you really feel doesn't somehow signify blood in the water, but instead our humanity.
If I can help anyone at all, this site is where I want someone to find their voice and no longer suffer in silence. Through the vehicles of art, humor and sometimes anonymity we will find a way to say “my heart has a story or pain it’s been dying to get out...can I share it here?”. And you certainly can! I’ll be sharing through art and hope to feature you as well as other people who have great insight and wonderful creations that will give us hope as we journey together from the ashes to beauty. This is our litmus test.
