This is my journey. Surprise!  Welcome to an honest account of the most difficult situations in my life.

I have high hopes for this blog but I think the universal message is that despite your circumstances, you are enough. Who you want people to see you as doesn’t necessarily need to be any different from who you really are – it’s taken me awhile, but I’ve finally accepted it myself.  I am enough.

And since you’ve come this far, why don’t you hang around for the ride as I laugh at myself, laugh WITH others, laugh AT others and analyze the world through my eyes, which, you’ll come to understand may be extremely different than your own vision.  Life’s too short to NOT appreciate laughter, right? But that’s not to say I’m not deeply introspective and existential at the same time. How’s that possible, you ask?  Well….I don’t quite know yet. That’s why this is only the beginning.

While this journey may only seem like a cathartic experiment for myself, I also want to draw attention to an extremely important topic: organ donation. Now, I understand some feel a bit of angst discussing it (due to religious reasons, medical uncertainty, etc) but to me, it’s just not a controversial topic at all. I want to spread the word and the NEED for more organ donors. Where not too many of our day-to-day decisions actually concern ‘life or death’, this one does. Please register to be an organ donor and spread the message. Lives literally do depend on it. Visit my links to learn more.

So, take a deep breath, relax and enjoy. For some, that’s easier said than done [insert dramatic cliffhanger music].

P.S. My husband took this pic of me when we reached the peak of “The Chief” mountain (on our way up to Whistler, British Columbia). We climbed for hours and I wanted to turn around several times but I didn’t (never mind the agonizing muscle cramping I endured for the following week, but I digress). Yes, take that lesson and run with it. Take it with you on this crazy journey we call life. This was one of the most amazing moments of my life. I was truly, for the first time in my life, speechless (cue all the smart remarks).
