I am a single woman simply searching for happiness in this life. My collective life’s events have had a funny way of throwing me into a particular direction – and it has been up to me to simply accept the direction of the toss or rebel its imposition. (What can I say, I can be “headstrong” – but only sometimes…). And I have often become lost along the way, which has made the journey to find my way back to “me” arduous to say the least. This is my experience.
I am no longer young and blindly idealistic, nor am old and stuck in my ways – I am floating somewhere in the middle. My laughter, at times, has been deep; my tears have been very real. And now, I understand that there has been a very real reason why I’ve held all those crappy jobs with the terrible bosses and why I’ve fallen deeply in love, only to have my heart-broken and left trampled countless times. It has made me who I am today – for better or for worse. And hindsight being what it is, I wouldn’t change a thing.
I’ve set out now to document this journey in a very personal manner. I write simply for myself. I am not unique or special but, my perception of various events are. It would seem to me that I have been thrown yet again to follow a particular path; and who knows where it will lead me now.
You may see me looking stunned and scratching my head. Please don’t be alarmed. I’ll figure it out.
