“Turn your wounds into Wisdom” – Oprah Winfrey

Until recently I lead a very busy life, working full-time at a stressful corporate career, raising two wonderful children, being a wife, daughter and volunteer in the community. In October of 2014, my husband and I decided that I would take a break to look after my 91-year-old mother that was terminally ill and starting to fail.

I did this, and am extremely thankful that I was able to spend the last year with her. I will forever be grateful for that experience and time with her, even though it almost brought me to my knees. This pillar of strength passed away on July 27, 2015.

Hers was such a story that I began working on a memoir, which I plan to publish soon, as soon as I finish the battle with perfectionism. Stay tuned for this!!!! However the other part of this process was the way that I suddenly saw life events in a different way. I have always been a bit of a story-teller, so thought I would try my hand at adding a little creativity to my life, and sharing some of my insights with the purpose of practicing and improving my writing skills, and hopefully turning my wounds into wisdom.

I will create a new blog post every week, and if you are interested in receiving my updates, commenting on my posts,  please submit your info through the contact page.

So join me if you feel that my stories might help you keep you from repeating mistakes others have made, or perhaps just for a laugh.

All the Best – Jacquie
