The Point

Once upon a time there was a married stay-at-home mom. The problem was that she wasn’t really all that happy. The marriage was failing, and the stay-at-home gig just wasn’t working. She found herself struggling with anxiety and depression and knew that she had to do something about it.

And so, she left her marriage, got treatment for the depression and anxiety, got a job and met a wonderful single dad with two kids of his own. A man who happened to live three hours away.

For almost four years they made their way through a long-distance relationship. This single mom learned a lot about herself during this time — how to be strong and independent. The true meaning of happiness. How to love and trust again. She finally became the woman she always wanted to be.

And then, the most magical thing happened. Her boyfriend became her fiancee and relocated to live with her….not because they couldn’t live without each other, but because the time was finally right.

This is my story.

Here you’ll find my muddled thoughts on everything from being a single mom and working out co-parenting and other issues with my ex, to cute stories about my kids, to massive amounts of navel-gazing to working out all the details of my newly-blended family. Sometimes I even find the time to celebrate all the good stuff. And lately, there seems to be more of it than ever.

I just like to write down whatever is on my mind on any particular day.

I am (in no particular order):  a (former) single mom of two lovely little girls, a sometimes reluctant stepmom who is still learning the ropes, a dreamer, an unsuccessful wannabe vegetarian, a writer, a lover of chocolate, a coffee addict, a runner, an eating disorder survivor, and a hopeless romantic who would rather let my heart make my decisions for me. I don’t do it perfectly – I simply do the best that I can, given the tools and resources I have at the time.

One of my goals in life is to always be able to look back and know more now than I did then.

Please – drop me a line. I love hearing from people.  sunshinemama123@gmail.com
