What i learned at 21 vs 41

What I learned at 21 vs. 41

What I learned at 21 vs. 41 At 21 years old I lived in a little apartment in Huntington Harbor. I had me myself and I to think of. That’s it. Not because there was no one else to consider, but the fact that I was only 21 played a huge role in the fact that I only really thought of myself. I only did for myself, I only took care of myself, and I only needed for myself. At 21 I worked as a waitress in a little diner where I made minimum wages plus tips. My rent was $600.00 my total bills were a little over $200.00 dollars and the rest was gravy. My car was paid for (thanks dad) my insurance was paid for every month by my father and any other major hiccups would always be handled and taken care of by my […]

By the time I was 25…

By the time I was 25 years old, I was a wife and a mom. I had made it back from France, I had completed dental school and become a dental assistant and doing my best to find the new version of myself. Through all of it I felt like I had lost myself.

This is about the time that I started realizing how going to France to take care of that little boy […]

I turned 27, and life turned towards me…..

I had an almost 3 year old son and I felt like I was finally getting my groove back. Mitchell was finally old enough that it wasn’t such a bid deal to ask my mom or dad to watch him for an evening. It did not consist of  the diaper bag, extra clothes, extra diapers. The bottles, stroller, play pin..and everything else that goes along with a baby.

Admitted to the ICU – Scottsdale Memorial

Admitted to the ICU – Scottsdale Memorial

I was admitted to the ICU at Scottsdale Memorial in Arizona. I had not felt fear in riding that bull. my questionable dismount, or even the helicopter ride. But now here I was being admitted to the ICU. What was about to happen was absolutely the most scared I had been so far. I was alone, however not alone by definition, but alone in that I had no one there with me to answer any of the dozens of questions that were being thrown my way. […]
