Why am I blogging?
Good question. I am 52 years old and female and I lost my profession a few years back, three to be exact, and I haven't been able to find myself since. It was and is depressing to lose oneself at 49 years of age. But okay, so it's done. Now what? After three long years I am trying to reinvent, invent, renovate, hell tear it down and start from scratch. Whatever! The point is I am trying. Well some days I try, other days I am not sure what I do, if anything at all.
Who was I three years ago? Without spending too much time sharing what was, to put it simply, I was a home builder. Although I absolutely loved building homes, it simply no longer exists for me, so I have to move on, and I really want to move on. So because of my love of houses, blogging about all things having to do with houses seems like a pretty natural thing to do. I am going to make mistakes, so if you see something I have done wrong or incorrectly please let me know. Try to be kind, it helps to be kind, don't you think? I told my son a week ago, that it is hard for this old dog to learn new tricks, and he said, "Mom, the difference is your not a dog." I am not exactly sure if this was a compliment but I get his point, I think. Nevertheless, dog or no dog, this reinvention thing, it's hard.
Here are some of the houses that I built.
Have you ever had to reinvent yourself? What did you use to do and what do you do now? How did you get through your reinvention? I really would like to know. Please share.
