After 15 years climbing the corporate ladder, I “retired”… exiting the “rat race” to dive head first into the “human race”.  My initial…and only…plan was to spend 365 days getting to know the most important human in my life….me!

It all started here…on Day 0 and ended (sort of) on Day 365. Or did it…

It wasn’t necessarily pretty but it was real…and hopefully a little inspiring.

After some time away from blogging, I’m back! Continuing my story of a 40-something woman seeking love (again), connection (always) and success (on my own terms).

Having experienced a shit show of a year (thanks, 2018), I can only suggest you grab a beverage and buckle up. Shit is about to get real…

    This is very interesting to me. Henry David Thoreau said, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

    I am close to retirement (less than a year). So I am curious about your journey and plan to follow along.

    I just read your “about” and it reminded me of how I felt after my husband died. I went from being a daughter — to being a wife — to being a mother. I never had or spent the time being me. What did I want? What did I need? I spent the next 9 years figuring it out. (Hopefully, it won’t take you that long.) I still don’t have all the answers, but I do know these things .. I need to be heard … I sometimes need comfort … I don’t need to be taken care of … I don’t need or want to smothered.


  3. March on, brave one…

    Love the idea for your blog! I’ve recently launched a “Year of Self’ so really enjoy reading about how others have changed their lives.

    Now I need to work my way backwards through your posts!
