I am an almost 40 year old woman who believes that life is all about rolling with the punches, and learning what you can, from who you can along the way. Life doesn’t always turn out like you expect it to, but if you take the time to look around you, you will find lessons to be learned and beauty to be found.
I grew up in the maritimes, and when I was young I used to dream about “just getting out” of the small, slow towns I grew up in. And that’s exactly what I did when I was 19…Packed up a 1/2 ton and drove out West. I lived in crappy apartments, with too many people living in them. I learned what it takes to make it on your own in the big city. I grew, I worked, I struggled but I kept going. Taking every opportunity I had to move forward and to learn from the people I had around me along the way.
I finally found myself in a beautiful house, in a great neighborhood, working a job I loved and thinking “what is next”? The answer for me is school. I work full time, I take courses and I try to live life experiencing new things along the way. It’s hard, and it’s challenging but I think that’s how life is supposed to be.
