Hi. My name is Danielle.
Over the last 25 years, I've had to put the needs of others ahead of mine: my husband, my children, my friends. I was always the last on my own list.
Well, no more.
My marriage fell apart over 5 years ago. My children are (almost) grown up: the time is ripe for a new beginning. But this time, I'M on top of the list.
I want to reconnect with who I am, what I like to do, and find a career I will enjoy.

I want to reconnect with who I am, what I like to do, and find a career I will enjoy.
Over the next few years, I will be embarking on a trip. You are welcome to accompany me in my sojourn to a new beginning.

My Goals:
I want a new beginning: a time where I would be first on the list of priorities, where I would do things or activities just because I like them, not because someone else around me likes it. I want to get back in shape, feel good about me and my body.

My Program:
I am going back to school in September to fulfill a lifelong dream to become a translator/interpreter.
I am working out to improve my health and keep my anxiety in check.

Personal Information:
-I was born in Montréal, Québec, but now live in North Bay, Ontario.
-My first language is French.
-I have 2 boys and 3 cats.
-I practice a very unusual martial art called iaido (japanese swordsmanship)
-I do creative writing as a mean to help me deal with stress and anxiety.

Other Information:
"Who does the impossible? Those who can"

-- my sensei's favourite saying when I get discouraged.
