I am SO excited to share this blog with the world! I learned a lot about myself during my health and wellness journey and I feel that sharing this knowledge may guide you, give you hope, or maybe, hopefully, potentially, make you laugh.
But I’m also ridiculously nervous about sharing my stories.
Why? Well, here’s the thing. I grew up in a family that did not talk about things. Even a little bit. For example, and this is a biggie, we did not and still really do not talk about my brother’s untimely death. Couple that with my (part-time) day job – practicing law – and you have a recipe for cemented-in stoicism. Part of my health journey over the last few years included learning about my core, my true self, and although I am now much, much, much more open and vulnerable than I used to be, a near lifetime of stoicism is a hard habit to break. (It’s so hard, in fact, that I self-medicated with food and alcohol. Stay tuned…)
Thank you for indulging me. I hope you enjoy the ride!
