How do I start?

I guess I start by saying that a year ago I never thought I would be blogging. I had just survived a bout with cancer that I was sure would take my life. My Marriage had ended. I barely had enough energy to get up in the morning and see my daughter off to school. I went to get help and all I got were little pills that made me want to sleep even more.

I did find a way.

I found a way to thrive and be creative and love again.

I want to have a place to write about that so here I am....and I want to know who you are too. so if you are here say hi please! We all share the same universe!

Welcome to bloggy land! And thanks for stopping by my blog.

It sounds like you have really been through it. Blogging has definitely been a great place for me to get out some emotions of a tough year, so I think you'll really enjoy it.

So glad you made it through all of your struggles and are starting again. :)

Melissa, thanks for stopping by my blog! I love finding new blogs to follow! It's been great therapy for me as a two-time breast cancer survivor. I love finding the funny and interesting things in life and rarely write a serious post. Welcome to the club that no one wants to belong to, but congratulations on being a survivor!
