June 2012


Over the course of several years I have been on a bit of a journey, if you want to call it that.  This journey took me far away from the person I am.  So far away, in fact, that I didn’t recognize the person in the mirror.  She looked the same on the outside, but if I really looked into her eyes, I didn’t know the person staring back.  She was empty.  She had little interest in anything.  She found no joy in the happiest of occasions.  She was a shell.

This was very distressing for all of the obvious reason, of course.  But what was far worse was that I couldn’t comprehend how I had let it come to this.  I was a strong, independent, ambitious woman.  I had a plan for my life…and this was not it.

I am happy to say that I am no longer looking at that same reflection, but I am still learning to live with me.  Through this blog, I plan to share where this journey began, how I got to such a distant place, and how I am returning to the person I am supposed to be.  I know I have a long way to go.  I also know that I am taking this journey for a reason, and I believe that reason is to help others that are traveling the same road.

I have no special training in these matters, nor do I believe to have all the answers.   My hope, however, is that by sharing my story, others can learn to live with their “me.”
