A lot of people spend their entire lives living in the same city where they grew up. In some cases, living in the same community only a few doors away from family and friends. I did the same. A lot of people go off to college and then settle elsewhere not returning to their hometown but deciding to strike with… Read More
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!
As most of us are heard to say this time of year, I don’t know where the year went! Particularly this last quarter of the year for me has been so full that I have been remiss in posting new articles to this blog. For that I apologize but rest assured that I plan to be right back at it… Read More
Milestones along the journey. For most of us who have faced cancer, reaching the one-year mark cancer-free is something we never think we will achieve. But we get there and feel a little relieved that maybe we can put this behind us. Then you face the five-year mark just hoping and praying that you reach that milestone – you don’t… Read More
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass. It’s about dancing in the rain.”* My favorite expression of all times. I use it as my signature on my emails and as a silent chant in my head when things seem to be rough. Everyone’s journey is from time to time fraught with challenges which may seem to rock your… Read More
We have so many people we hold dear to us Those of us with spouses, partners or significant others know that they are truly our very best friends. We also can never minimize the importance and significance of having family members who support us and love us unconditionally. There are so many people who do not have these people in… Read More
Do you really mean it when you say you hate growing old? At least once a week someone will say to me “I hate getting old!” Considering the alternative, I would like to get as old as possible, thank you very much. Sure, I know they are referring to the aches and pains of “old age” but wouldn’t you rather… Read More
