My name is Anna Colibri.
I am a working single mom living in the heart of San Francisco during extraordinary times. This blog is where I tell the truth about life as I see it, with all its messiness, unpredictability, and heart-stopping beauty.
I started writing the first #CrazyBeautiful blog in September 2012, motivated by a broken heart. Because I didn’t want to feel alone, I decided to turn my personal experiences into something shareable that could help people feel connected and inspired.
#CrazyBeautiful means that life is messy and amazing, often difficult, unpredictable and uncontrollable, and yet, when all is said and done, sublime.
The #CrazyBeautiful message is that life at its best is lived on the adrenaline-producing edge of what we believe is possible and hope can be true. In a world of trouble and pain, we are soldiers at heart, fighting the good fight to discover the truth about ourselves and others, and to use that truth to encourage love, connection, and creativity.
Living the #CrazyBeautiful life is intense. It requires self-reflection, faith, courage, the senses of adventure and humor, and a willingness to take a stand for yourself and everyone. It’s not always easy, it can be scary, and–you’ll have to trust me on this–it’s always worth it.
