Hello and welcome to my SparkPage! I'm so glad you stopped by. :)

I'm a 40-something woman who's beginning a new chapter in life. Recently divorced with grown children, I have some great opportunities to make some big changes in my life. For so long, I've been someone's wife and mother that now that I have a lot more free-time on my hands, I want to do something special with it. What that is, I have no idea! I just know that life is short and that it's meant to be lived now and not "someday" in the future. As I work to lose almost 100 lbs that was put on during an emotionally abusive marriage, I am also looking to "cast off what hinders" me from living a fulfilling life. I'm looking forward to getting to know who I am again while making a positive impact on this world. I have no idea where this road will lead me but I'm taking along a great attitude and an open mind as I travel it. I hope you will visit me often. Life is too short to not share it with others. :)

See you around!
