You know how sometimes you look in the mirror and wonder “who is that?” You still feel like a child inside but the person looking back at you is way older than the person you feel. We should all have moments when we want to play as if we were still kids. There is an exuberance and innocence that comes… 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!

Many of us are into five weeks or more of social-distancing and quarantining ourselves as we try to make our way through the challenges we face due to the presence of COVID-19 in our lives. We try to find moments of gratitude but even now for many it is hard to find reasons to be grateful when so much has… Read More
I keep hearing the expression that this is our new “normal.” I don’t exactly agree. I think we are working through things as they develop to determine what our new normal will look like. Our country, if not our world, will be forever changed by the events unfolding around us as this pandemic surrounds us. What normal will look like… Read More
It is imperative that we all adhere to the distancing guidelines that have been issued. The only way to protect ourselves, our friends and family regardless of age is to do this without exception. That is how we protect ourselves and honor those who are working so hard to get us through this and those who have died in the… Read More
A few months ago, I published a post that whether to go gray was not a decision I was ready to make. If you look closely at this recent photo of me, you can notice that it’s a go. What I thought was difficult became easy by just voicing it out loud. Sometimes it takes putting pen to paper (so… Read More
