It seems like years since I last shared my adventures with the world...because it has been years. But I am here to let everyone know, I'm back. "Lauren's got her groove back." Well, sort of....
I have experienced a number of life changes - some of them my choices, some of them not. Some of them resulting from very, very bad judgment and decision making. Some of them coming from my drive to never give in and never give up. Nevertheless, all roads have led me to where I am now and I am coming back to tell you all.
With the big 4-0 only seven weeks away, I recognize that I am shoulder deep in the crisis of mid-life. But I am ready to wade through those rocky waters, with the strong currents pulling me away from shore, and make it to my goals.
Mid-life has forced me to start admitting my truths and consequently recognizing that the only way for my soul to survive is to face my fears and jump in the water, feet first. I'm not a good swimmer - really. So keeping afloat while I work to live a joyous and fulfilled life will be the challenge I must face.
And in my longstanding tradition of oversharing, you can all come along for the ride of my life. Welcome back to my loyal friends and welcome to my new ones.
Let's raise a glass to new beginnings.
