take 2: showing my scars

I never want anyone else to feel like I did - ashamed, embarrassed, self-conscious because of the bruises...What someone feels is ok to do to you - harm you physically - is not okay and not your fault. I wish I could have absorbed this earlier than when I finally did. A man that physically attacks a women is not a man - not a normal human being - it's not ok and they are showing how weak THEY are NOT how weak you are. I've decided to take a second shot at exposing my most raw emotions about something that I would never want another woman to ever go through.

finding me: adventure #1

finding me after divorce

And as much as I love my kids, I need to do these adventures on my own. Mom's forget, all too often, who we were before we had kids - and we mentally shame ourselves for wanting time alone...so I am working diligently to find a balance between mom-life and me-life and work-life. Thank goodness for friends so that I get to have fun with other adults during my adventures too.
