This is me…Mel…I am a stay-at-home wife and mom…have been for most of my married life, which would also be most of my adult life.  

I’ve come to a point in my life of needing to find myself again…I lost myself a long time ago, don’t know where I went, but I am lost.  

I grew up on a farm in Iowa…had a pretty good life growing up.  I’m the baby of the family, so I’ve basically been spoiled and have no problem admitting that fact.  I was also very much sheltered until the day I married my husband.  

My husband and I have been married over 20 years and have two yahoos.  We’ve had a pretty good life.  We’ve had our moments, life isn’t always fun and games, of course.  But we have built a pretty good life.  

Although I’ve had a mostly good life, I’ve come to the point in life where I have to do something to better myself, and in order to do that, I have to find out who I am.  

Life is a journey, and giving this blogging thing a go at seeing where the journey may go.

  1. I suspect that when we find ourselves, it’s actually that we find where our (awakened) passion and our (cultivated) ability to do something cross. Areas to consider searching for passion might include fiction writing, a concern for a specific type of human suffering, spirituality, risking your life to ride a motorcycle, and tutoring deaf children. To help develop your gift for anything, you might read, “The Talent Code” by Daniel Coyle.

    I think free will helps explain a lot of the human condition. It’s like a delicate muscle within the inner ear (like the stapedius), needing exercise for strength and also protection from loud damaging forces. Good luck with your journey. 🙂

  2. You’ve read a lot of my posts, so now I’ll be reading yours. I miss the kind of Americana that you write about, as I’ve lived in Denmark all these years now. I still feel like I’m more American, than Dane, but it doesn’t really matter that much, because I am still the me that used to only hear English spoken all the time, just existing in another time and place.

    • Thank you! Really enjoy your writing! Enjoy your humor as well! Found you while looking into Denmark tags. Would love to visit some day and visit some of the places where my ancestors came from. Have a good one!

  4. Thank you, Mel, for following my blog. I think we all go through that stuff about needing to rediscover ourselves at some point in life. New love is so all-encompassing – we immerse ourselves into a relationship that leaves little, if any me-time. then there’s work, family….until one day we wake up, look in the mirror and wonder who that person is! I wish you well on your journey back to yourself. It’s an adventure full of ups and downs. It’s all good 🙂
