I am Smartie. And I’m, well, a lot of things. I’d like to narrow myself down to a specific something, but it’s kind of hard to do. I guess you could say that this is part of the reason for this blog, to figure out who exactly I am. I’m constantly changing, and seeing familiar things in a new light all the time. This blog is a place to capture those light bulb moments.
But what I can tell you is that I’m in transition. I’m at a point in my life where I’m shedding my old skin in place for a brand new me. I’m coming into my own, and building a new life for me and my daughter. I’m a single Mom who was laid off from a place I absolutely loved to work at, and found employment after 5 months – only to find that the employment situation is questionable, I am going through a divorce with a man who I’ve been with for more than half my life and trying to figure out the dynamics of our new relationship, moving house and grieving the loss of my dad.
But there are choices in how to see things, only if we’re willing to open our eyes. I’ve gone through most of my life with my eyes closed, and really, I’m tired of smashing into things, or opening them up wondering where the heck I am.
So pull up a chair, and enjoy!
