Who I am and why I’m here – Blogging 101

I hopped on to the Blogging 101 challenge to improve my blogging skills, interact with fellow bloggers and hopefully gain more followers.

I am a mom to two beautiful teenage daughters who light up my existence. I’ve been happily married to my sweetheart for nineteen years, which in all honesty have been the happiest moments spent with the kindest man I know. I adore my family immensely, they centre me, support me in every initiative I undertake and without their unwavering support I wouldn’t have made it this far.

I am a personal assistant by day, an avid runner during my free time, been sober for five years through my commitment to AA meetings and last but not least – moonlight as a writer. Balancing all my activities takes plenty of planning, dedication and sheer determination.

Why blogging you ask? Well I’ve always been fascinated by the world of blogging. I started my fling with the written word through journaling many years ago and it’s where my passion ignited. I plunged into blogging last year when I underwent a double bunionectomy on my feet, sacrificing six months of no running, capturing my experience and thoughts. It may not have been the most pleasant time; however I thoroughly enjoyed sharing my thinking with the globe, bringing about deep satisfaction and a sense of achievement.

I have lived a colourful thirty-nine years of my life, had to overcome many obstacles along the way, many a time feeling like I was drowning, not believing I’d make it, yet through the grace of God I’ve surfaced – stronger and wiser. Through the perpetuation of this blog, I aim to achieve my ultimate goal – to become a full time writer.

Readers of my blog will be entertained with snippets of my life, running escapades, writing goals, book reviews, sobriety posts all infused in my sweet inspirational writing.

I hope I have swayed you to stay for the ride 🙂
