Who I Am Now….


Who I am now is something I am still learning about.  I look back at what I wrote 4 years ago and it amazes me as to how much has changed in my world. This blog is all about discovering who I am now.  I don’t have thatimg_20160926_144204 answer just yet.  My journey is just beginning and I am discovering I am more than I ever thought I was or could be.  This life has brought me terrible pain and loss, but it has also opened my eyes to what really matters in this life and that I can find happiness yet again.  I want to help inspire others who have suffered the pain of losing their spouse to continue living.  Living Forward is our best option.  We are here for a reason, we can’t just life pass us by.



This is a tough question.  How do you describe yourself so people feel like they know you simply by reading.  I will start with the basics.  I am a wife and mother of three boys.  I am a teacher, student, and licensed counselor.  I am a daughter, a sister and a friend.  I work full-time teaching middle school to the most amazing group of girls.  I love my job and everyone I work with..how many can say that?  I am also someone who has always loved to write, but never had a platform to do it.  I was never a poet, or creative writer, I simply enjoy writing.  It makes me feel good.  It makes me feel connected to the world.  I’ve struggled for years trying to “grow up” and figure out what I was going to do with the rest of my life.  That is where this blog came in.  I initially started this to  force myself to write and take a look at myself and where I want to be in life.  It has evolved since then.  I now use it to meexpress my feelings, my thoughts and my concerns.  Its kind of my personal journal that is not so personal.  When I share my thoughts I feel that I may actually touch someone, help someone or change their thoughts if even for a moment.  That is all I want.  I want to make a difference some how, some where.  If it must start with a blog, then that is where I start.   I thank you all who take the time to read what I have to say.  You will never know how much it means to me



One thought on “Who I Am Now….

  1. Your words give me hope. I lost my husband Oct.11, 2014. Married for 36 years. He is the only man that I have ever loved. We married when I was 18. Almost 26 months in and I have good days and bad. Times I feel as if I will survive and then it hits me again and I am not sure I want to survive. But the Lord continues to guide me and give me hope. I pray that I will get there. Thank you for your inspiring words. Much love to you on your journey.
