Hi, I’m Dominee Calderon, it’s nice to meet you!
Who is Dominee Calderon? Good question! I’m not the best at talking about myself but let me give it a go. I have depression, anxiety, and a severe case of I’m-an-introvert-do-I-really-have-to-leave-the-house-for-this? Social anxiety is probably the thing I struggle with the most.
I put the ‘b’ in LGBTQIA (although I prefer pansexual). And I’m bi-racial.
I live in Oklahoma with my wife and our five cats. I’m a huge book nerd and a gamer. I will read just about anything but my favorite genres are historical romance and all things zombies. I’ve played World of Warcraft for about a decade and I love playing Dragon Age or anything role-playing/fantasy-based.
Golden Girls will always be my favorite show. I’d say I’m 50% Dorothy and 50% Rose depending on the day. I am forever battling my five cats for my hair ties, no matter how many proper cat toys they have, hair ties are the toy of choice. And cat fur… I’m perpetually covered in it.
I watch way too much reality tv and I’m okay with that, we all need our not-so-guilty pleasures.
I also watch a lot of Investigate Discovery. In the DC vs Marvel war, I will always choose Marvel. My favorite movie is Avengers: Age of Ultron and the Hulk is my favorite character. I identify with the whole hulking out with anger and yearning for control.
I’m sarcastic and I love a good sense of humor. One of my love languages is memes.
I’m really passionate about encouraging people to love themselves.
Before I learned to love myself I was constantly depressed. I chose destructive relationships. I had no drive. Learning to love myself, figuring myself out, and falling in love with my body and my personality completely turned my life upside down in the best way.
I’ve created this online resource for all things self-care, self-love, body love, depression/anxiety relief, spirituality and more. I want to share the love.
There is no greater tool for transformation than deciding that it’s time to start loving yourself.
Read My Self Love Story to hear about how self-care changed my life and had a huge impact on my depression and anxiety. If you’re new to the concept of self-care and self-love then discover what self-love actually is.
This is my Mission: Encourage you to focus on self-care and mental health while providing tools that might help you on the way.
What is Blessing Manifesting?
Blessing Manifesting is a place to explore topics of self-love, self-care, body love, as well as tips to deal with depression and anxiety. It’s your online sanctuary for positivity, inspiration, and community.
I want this space to encourage you and inspire you to forge your own path, to discover your own way to happiness, and to live an amazing life. I want to help you get to know yourself, really know yourself, and fall in love with the person that you find there.
If you deal with depression and anxiety I want to show you what works for me and maybe it will work for you too. Combine my tips with what the professionals say and let’s see if it makes a difference. At the end of the day whether it comes to self-care or anxiety we’re all different in what works for us, what makes us feel good, and what nourishes our soul. I think that’s great. It means we all have different experiences that we can share with one another.
