PhD in Life: Life Lessons from Joan

My life imploded in a period of six months. My 23 year marriage ended, my mother and sister died (I had already lost my father and brother), and my oldest son left for college. In a blink of an eye, I was no longer a wife, daughter, sister, or mother as I knew it. One day I had a full life, and the next it was gone. In a short period of time, I had to deal with just about every human emotion imaginable. And, it all occurred when I was middle age trying to figure out who I was and what I could accomplish. My self esteem was shattered and I didn’t recognize my reflection in the mirror. Getting through those experiences took every ounce of courage and strength I could muster, but I did it. I like to say that I earned my PhD in Life. My life a testament to the power of the human spirit and the ability to rebuild from the ashes. Here I share with you lessons that helped me grow stronger and create the life that I now enjoy. If I could move forward, you can too!

Your Attitude Determines Your Experience

Pain is Inevitable But Suffering is Optional

Sometimes It Just Don’t FIt

Don’t Wish Your Days Away Waiting for Something Better
