I have a story to tell. Not because I have to; and truthfully, not because I want to. The story I am sharing needs to be told so I can heal and get on with the new life I have been given. I need to find the joy in my life again. I feel as if I don’t tell my story I am somehow being untrue to myself and to others who may experience a situation similar to mine.
Someone once said, “Life is what’s happening when you are busy making other plans.” I know they are lyrics in a John Lennon song, and I always believed it was a true statement. However, what I didn’t know was during 2005 my life would turn upside down like never before. In fact, years later, my head is still spinning from the effects of it all. All that occurred during the past five years had shaken me to the core and had me questioning all aspects of my life.
Was I really going to tell my story? Was I prepared to write a book? Writing, which was my career, is, after all, about honesty, and recreating those feelings for the readers made recreating them for me as well. Writing the book would force me to remember – and re-experience — things I would rather not think about. Did anyone care about me or my thoughts? Was I ready to tell my story? Could I tell it? I thought so, but life’s lessons don’t come easy.
As I thought of filling an entire book I got more and more anxious. Friends who I have known for years began to blog and enjoyed it. I thought that if I were to blog about my experience would be the first step to sharing my story. As I begin this new adventure, I hope that it may help others when they find their life shaking up with or without your permission. You will be able to get a little or a lot of information depending on what is going on in your life.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
