Discovering Me! Discovering You!
In this category, I think it is important for you to know something about me such as who I am, what has been my journey and how I made the decision to start this blog. I want to share the journey I have traveled so far and how I came to be the me that I know and love today. I find it extremely exciting and invigorating to meet other women and learn their stories. This section will share the stories of our lives – not just mine. It is not that I think my life’s story has been so different than millions of other women out there but it may be just different enough that someone will read it and find comfort or inspiration in the “sameness” or just see it as inspiration to look at your own journey and how you became the wonderful you that you are today. I hope that other women want to share their stories as well.
Each day is a new opportunity to learn something new. It can be a new word, a new recipe, a new language – every day in every way we are learning. Maybe we are coping with the loss of a job or a loved one, dealing with a serious illness, helping our children or something that impacts the way our lives used to be and is now forcing us to learn to make the most of our lives as they are in our new reality. Maybe we have entered a new phase of life like retirement, parenthood, returning to school to pursue another degree, taking a dance class or swim lessons. Every day in every way we can learn and embrace something new. Together we can keep learning!

Anyone who knows me knows I am never without my Fitbit. At least 5-6 days out of the week, I am up early trying to get my 10K steps done. I love power walking in the mornings not only for the physical benefits but just to be outdoors starting a new day clearing my head and just taking in the… Read More
So here we are – a few days into the new year. Does it feel any different than it did a week ago? It’s supposed to be different, right? At least that’s what a lot of people expect. I choose not to make resolutions for the new year. I consider myself a work in progress so I am continually looking… Read More
What if today is really tomorrow and tomorrow is really yesterday? Or maybe yesterday was really today? We spend so much time regretting what we did yesterday and worrying about what we will do tomorrow that in the confusion we often forget all about what is happening in the present. I think that is why we always wonder where the… Read More
