My 3 Year Hiatus

I didn’t realize it’s been 3 years since my last post. I am no longer at the big d (must think of a new blog title). I’m now a manager at a Jewelry store.. (every kiss begins with me?). In three years I’ve lost one kidney, gained one ex husband (thank God), lost 2 aunts within 6 weeks of each other, I’ve moved 3 times, gained and lost an abusive boyfriend… and gained one amazing rescue puppy!!

I am, at the age of 41, truly finding out who I am as an individual, as a woman, and as a puppy mommy.

I’m nursing a broken heart, haunted by the dreams of what could have been.. of what I thought was, and wondering how I could have been duped by such a man. I’m finding my way in a new profession.. completely adrift in my knowledge but confident in my abilities. I’m struggling to find a happy medium between “I’ll never love again, it’s pointless” and “Let’s start dating now”. I need to heal and self sooth but be careful to not completely cut off the world.

So, I’m back in the blogging world, inspired by my amazing new neighbor. She has reached out and brought me into her fold, giving me a fresh perspective and a ray of hope.
