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.

Every day in every way we can learn and embrace something new. Together we can keep learning!

If they only stopped for a minute and thought about it they would have seen that it is the ultimate compliment. We fight for jobs. … Read More
We all need that special place that only we know about where we can go and find ourselves when everything seems out of our control – and we all know that these are the times that make us feel that way. As a child I used to go hide in my closet. There was something comforting to sit on the… Read More
We each have a sunrise inside of us. Just as the sun rises each morning unveiling the light of the day, we are meant to show the light that shines within each of us and share it with the world. Some days that light may shine brighter than others but it is there and we get to choose how to… Read More
We all instantly recognize Robert de Niro’s famous line from the movie Taxi Driver “You talking to me? You talking to me?” It is a line that when spoken the way he said it makes you want to back away with your hands up in surrender. These days that is how you feel sometimes just walking down the street. My… Read More
