Just like this website, life is a work in progress. I confided to a friend today that six months ago, I never would have imagined my life is as it is today. I had been interned in what I like to call “The Waiting Place,” for five years ever since the dissolution of my marriage. (For those Dr. Seuss fans out there, Oh The Places You’ll Go is not just a lyrical rhyme, it’s a spiritual how to book.) I was lost in a limbo, trying to find my way, figuring out various ways to reinvent and rejuvenate myself. I could have succumbed to the dark forces of depression and insecurity during this time, I could have given up, but instead, I took it as an opportunity to grow.
Every day when my legs slung over the side of the bed and my feet touched the carpeted floor, I promised myself I would do everything in my power to make it a good day. Even if I was lethargic or sick, I forced myself to eat healthy, to exercise and to fill my head with positive affirmations. Of course, I had bad days, but soon they became fewer and farther
in between. I became impatient at times, wanting to transport myself to a happier place, but if I had done so, I never would have learned the lessons that accompanied the journey. Yes, this has been quite the journey, and I have by no means reached my destination.
This website is my way to impart what I have learned thus far to others, hoping at least one little insight, one bit of wisdom within these pages will reach out and touch someone and make their lives a little bit easier, a little bit nicer, whether it comes from a vitamin supplement or an exercise DVD. A dear friend pointed out to me that this website is an amalgamation of all my life experiences: my training as a writer, my studies in fashion, my experience in cosmetology, my passion for health and fitness and cooking, and my certification in energy healing. All these components have come together in this one place, this one website, and they are, in my view, a beautiful fit.
