I am a recently-turned-40 year old, born and raised New Englander, mother of 3, wife of 1, daughter of 2, older sister to 1, younger sister to none, aunt to several, friend to a few, pet owner to 1 dog, 1 cat, a 1 turtle, and an occasional fish or two, and controller of me and only me.
I believe that if you are not happy with something, you have the power to change it, and I don’t do well with people who believe things happen to them, not because of them. I, like Oprah, believe that people show you who they are the first time and if you choose not to listen then you and only you are to blame for what happens as a result.
I enjoy writing, cooking (sometimes), sports, anything creative, “chelaxin’”and drinking all kinds of wine (and I’m just as happy with a cheap bottle of Lambrusca as I am with an expensive Malbec), as long as it’s shared with good friends. I am an avid listener of music, talk radio, and my kids complaining, and I am addicted to reality TV. I am a former lifeguard, school counselor, psychotherapist, newspaper editor, and more, but I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, but I’m hoping it has something to do with writing, this blog, and helping others.
So join me on my journey, and the journey of others as we all navigate our own renaissance.
