I’m a 30-something single (but in a committed partnership) journalist who at one point thought my life was on one path and then had to begin anew at 30. Once married with a condo and looking to become a mother, I’m now divorced and renting an apartment with my boyfriend, and I have no idea if I’ll ever get married again or have kids. I’m basically living paycheck to paycheck and watching my peers buy houses, get married and have kids. Is that life for me? I’m not sure, but in my quest to be the best version of myself, I’m trying various mental health strategies and just plain L-I-V-I-N. I try to remember to laugh at least once every day and be thankful for all that I have- it can always be worse. But it could be better. I could be better. This blog is my journey on my quest to become a real adult… and adulting is hard. I’d love for this to be a collaborative sharing of strategies and experiences, so feel free to email me questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org!
