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!
Really, you don’t have any children?

It is as if we could not live a full and happy life without children of our own. There are many… Read More
My tale of woe. Here is the tale of my first day at college or maybe I should call it “The day I destroyed my dad’s brand new Pontiac LeMans.” First, let me assure you that no one was hurt during this event (even after my Dad received the news). However, for a few years that did not diminish my… Read More
When we have won the medical battle, we find there is another front to fight. Sometimes when we think that we have won the fight we can find that there are lingering sneak attacks of our own doing that can make us think that we may never truly finish the fight. In this instance, the enemy I speak of is… Read More
To diet or not to diet. We are all doing it – exercising and trying to eat well-balanced nutritional meals. I actually stopped using the word “diet” a long time ago. In my teens, twenties and thirties, I was young and very active like most of us. There was no need to count calories or watch what I ate (or… Read More
Words are difficult to find. It is very difficult to know exactly what to say to someone who has cancer or a serious life threatening illness or disease that requires prolonged surgery or treatment. No matter how close you are – spouse, child, friend, work colleague – it still feels awkward. Most people feel that they always need to be… Read More
