READ WITH CAUTION! This blog isn’t about sugar coating life. I choose to be a realist, and to express real things because I believe that in order for people to connect at a level deeper than the surface, we need to stop hiding, pretending and worrying so much about what will happen if others see the “real me”.
I appreciate genuine, sincere and honest people, whether or not they agree with me. “Being real” is about breaking down walls, starting with those that have grown up within yourself. It’s about learning how people really think and feel, having the courage to say things out loud and allowing them to do the same.
The best relationships I have in my life are with people who allow me to be me, and allow me to really see them.
I am a middle aged mother of two adult children. Three years ago my dear husband, of what would now be thirty years, suffered a traumatic brain injury after a serious motor vehicle accident on his way home from work. We lost him forever after over two years of fighting for his recovery.
This event challenged everything in my life: my perspectives, my attitude, and my personal beliefs. It made me question everything I ever thought I knew. My blog began at the end of 2014 with the intention of eventually telling our story, and those chapters are now complete.
From there on will be posts about various topics and opinions that I choose to share, from a perspective that is my own. I will be honest and real. I might sound sad, funny, cynical, or just reflective. I might often make you mad. But I hope I always make you think.
