Yep, Iā€™m here.

This Blog, this post, this day represents a great leap forward in my life. I’ve taken the reigns back from many of the messages I grew up with and have started again – at 51.

I look at it this way, based on the average life expectancy of a female born in the 1950’s I have about 21.2 years left. That’s a good amount of time to create a life for myself that looks more like what I want than what everyone else wanted for me.

So this is the beginning of my story. It’s New Years Eve 2010 and I’m finally ready. If you’re looking to make your life count more for yourself too then join me. I promise it’s going to be a fun, funny, insightful ride as we craft a journey that feeds the soul and lights up your spirit.

Stay tuned…
