Writing is cathartic; it’s a healing way of giving back while creating a legacy. It is also a lonely art. For me, it has always been a way to get in touch with myself ... where I came from, who I am now and who I strive to become. Life is ever-changing, and we need to be changing with it; especially, as parents -as role models.
When we first realize we are on our own, life can feel surreal. Maybe we got used to someone else pumping our gas, cooking our meals, paying our bills, cleaning our house. Perhaps we couldn't wait to leave the relationship, but no one told us the challenges and feelings we would be experiencing. whose life this anyway? IT'S your NEW life, and it's time to buckle your seat belts and experience YOUR life head on! Life is experi-mental; we are here to learn – and I believe – SHARE our wisdom and our selves.

When we first realize we are on our own, life can feel surreal. Maybe we got used to someone else pumping our gas, cooking our meals, paying our bills, cleaning our house.
