What This Blog Is About

I guess I started this blog prematurely. I first need to answer an important question: So what is this blog about?

It's about me. It's about you. It's about some people we all know. It's about society's expectations of us. It's about what those expectations do to us. And, oh, boy, what those do to us.

It's my story. And the story of many woman throughout the world.

But first, why my story... Buffeted over and over, I was caught in a horrible storm. My life had become overwhelming and stressful to the extreme. I was in chaos—body and spirit.

I laughed. I cried. I imploded. I did all the things people do when they reach the end.

I, like most women, spent too much time in insecurity and doubt. I let people take too much of me, and I gave too much away.

A dark cloud grew in my mind and began to change who I was.

I reached a point where I knew life had to change. I began a journey out of the darkness to find a safe harbor. And I found it in me.

In retrospect, I’ve discovered the incredible humor in what occurred, and I’m sharing it with you.

I imagine you’ll recognize a bit of yourself in what I’ve written. And if you do, I hope you'll share it, too.

I can’t say that I always enjoyed the journey, but I hope you will laugh until you pee yourself. In fact, you might want to put on some Depends right now.
