Hi, my name is Francesca I am a divorced mother of two beautiful girls. The reason I wanted to start this blog is because I realized that regardless of what race we are, background we have or financial status we are in, life offers all of us lessons.
Women take on lot of responsibility as wife, as mother’s or as care givers, always trying to be “the best”. In today’s world this is refer to the SUPERWOMEN syndrome. One day we wake up and its usually around the time when we hit he big 40, wondering what happened to us!
I was so worried about taking care of everyone else that I forgot to take care of the most important person, myself! My ah ha moment was the year I turned 40 and I was speaking to a friend whom I have known for the last 30 years.
He asked “who are you?” I was blown away by his remark as we known each other most of our lives.
I replied “What do you mean,do I know who I am?”
He then said “I know who you use to be, you would never let this happen, who are you now?”
This prompted me to take a long hard look inside myself and realized that I was still the same person I always was but some how along the way I lost myself. I allowed others to impose unrealistic expectations on me and in return I tried to reach these unattainable goals. It was at this point in my life that I decided to make a change, I was dying inside, being in a verbally and mentally abusive relationship for twenty four years will do that to you.
I decided to change, to break away from the fear that gripped my life for so long and change everything in my life and I have to tell you, I have never been happier.When I starting writing this blog, I realized this message wasn’t just for women but everyone and so my message is about hope for all.
I hope you follow me through this journey, I promise you I will always tell you it all, the good, the bad and even the ugly, I am not Willy Wonder, I wont sugar coat it, because I want you to know, even if you fall, you can get back up, that if you never stop, if you let go of fear, you can do anything you set your mind to and that the universe has far greater dreams for you than you could ever dream for yourself, if you just BELIEVE……
