Self Discovery, A Journey to Know Me.

I wrote my very first blog post on August 13, 2011.

Self Discovery. What does it mean? What will it reveal?



OMG – what will it reveal! That, quite literally, just made me a bit nauseous.

A Journey of Self Discovery
A Journey of Self Discovery

The Journey of Self-Discovery brought to you by my blog began on August 13, 2011.


I have always been a writer. I love to write. I love books. I have published under my own name, a pen name and as a ghostwriter.

Writing is just part of who I am.


I have so many journals filled with my thoughts.

Then one day, I decided to start a blog. I was not even sure I was going to publish it… it’s interesting to think about that. It is especially interesting because I am now a professional blogger.

Yes, I am other things too.

But that is sort of the point here. We can be so many things. 

At any rate. I am also sometimes a meandering muse.

That is actually what this very post began…me sharing my meandering thoughts, my observations throughout each day and some hard truths.

So… here we go again.  As we move forward, I will be sharing some of the things that I wrote way back then. A few of them have been showing up as of late.

I will also be sharing my real, raw feelings and thoughts with all of you. 

I hope that it will serve all of us. For you to know more about me and for me to heal old wounds and maybe for you to do the same.

This is the original un-edited post from August 13, 2011.

The journey to self-discovery may be more accurately stated as “the reinvention of self.”


If this journey of self-discovery really is more about reinvention then, “How many times do we reinvent ourselves ?”

First I was an embryo, then a fetus, a baby, a daughter, a sister.

Eventually, I added other titles such as student, brownie, girl scout, and college graduate.

Then came fiancee, wife, sister-in-law, and daughter-in-law.

Other reinvention of self-opportunities came such as mother, stay at home mother, and Auntie. To this mix, I add Holistic Nutrition Student, a student of Holistic Healthcare, and Herbalist student. Lest we forget, we also have vegetarian and vegan.

Now I wait to see if I will need yet another reinvention of self, another self-discovery.

This one of the scariest one of all, the one that we do not want to hear…. Cancer Patient.


I hope that I will be a beautiful butterfly instead…
