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 that 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.
ORIGINAL POSTING 2012
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 express 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
