Suiting Up For the Long Road Back To Myself

{Update: 8/5/13}

I'm a social worker in health care and live in NY with my two cats. I'm recently separated from my husband and for the first time in a long time, I've begun to embrace what it means to take care of myself. While my personal life has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride, I'm feeling confident and strong enough to know I can handle whatever life dishes out to me. I firmly believe that making my health and wellness a priority is giving me the perspective I've ...

I'm a social worker in health care and live in NY with my two cats. I'm recently separated from my husband and for the first time in a long time, I've begun to embrace what it means to take care of myself. While my personal life has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride, I'm feeling confident and strong enough to know I can handle whatever life dishes out to me. I firmly believe that making my health and wellness a priority is giving me the perspective I've needed to thrive and find joy in all I do.

Spark People is a blessing and I look forward to making friends and sharing inspiration and encouragement.

emoticon to the Lost a Loved One team. I hope you will stop by the team and introduce yourself and let us know how we can support you. We have an active and caring chat and support thread, a good resources thread with links and information, and are all members who have experienced grief and though each must walk their own journey, we walk it together and help each other along.

You can look at a mountain as a wild place of beauty to view or paint or photograph from a safe distance; or a wild place capable of destruction like Mount St. Helens. Or you can look at it as a wild challenge that you take on one step at a time. When you begin the challenge you'll have no idea how long it will take to get to the top, but you know you will with the support of your team.

We are here for you! We'll help you climb that mountain. You'll find us on the rocky slopes, the shady valleys, the wild flower meadows, the glacier lakes. New Challenges are starting Sunday.

Your teammates at the Weekly Challenge Team
