It's funny isn't it?
There comes a point in our life as we go along, where we realize it's time to close one chapter and open another. I hit that point this weekend. It wasn't one experience that led me to realize that it is time for some real changes to my own outlook, but several. And while I could go on record saying I had a literal epiphany about my own needs and behaviors, I won't. It is time for that exposure to my own deep self-reflection to remain private. Hence the creation of this new blog - my old blog captured the fallout after my divorce, good bad and ugly and I got into the habit of more complaining than blogging - so I want a new start.
I've been blogging for a long time - almost 6 years. My sister was the one who started me on it. The chance to put my ideas and thoughts into the universe while simultaneously journaling was something I couldn't ignore. It has been healing and sustaining and a momentous learning experience. This weekend something clicked inside of me and I realized I don't want to carry around all that anymore. It is over.
So who am I? I am a divorced, flip-flop wearing, Latter-Day Saint woman (aka Mormon) who is on the edge of a new life. I'm a mom to three young adult children who are braving their way into the world, a student in the midst of my Masters degree, quality assurance analyst trying to find my way through life while rediscovering spiritual and personal beliefs. I dream of moving near a beach, sharing time with that special someone and traveling....
Welcome to my new chapter.
