Has there been a moment in your life where you made a conscious decision that helped define who you are today?
If you’re reading this it means you have been following my blog. You’ve probably read my About Me page where it talks all about my love of meals in a bowl, right? Well there is a lot more to that story…
Are you reeling from loss in your life? Starting over in your late 40’s is possible – I’ve done it. This is my story and what Bowled ME Over. Here goes…
It all started when my husband of 22 years emailed to say he didn’t want to be married anymore and could he come by the house on Saturday and pick up his stuff? In the email he told me to hustle up and get the divorce done asap. Oh and by the way, here’s a hundred bucks and he’s moving to Austria. In complete and total shock, I collapsed on the floor. Long story short.
I remember taking that $100 to the store and thinking “What am I going to do?” I bought some soup and sandwich meat.
Soup became my go-to meal because it offered nutrition, variety and was an affordable meal. That why I was really excited to share Well Yes! Soup and share my story.
It was time for me to make a conscious decision. Rather become a victim and revel in self pity, I decided to turn my back on the ugliness and negativity that often happens during a divorce. My Moment of Yes was when I decided to become a better version of ME.
With the help of my family and friends I made a lot of changes. I got a job in sales. I worked on my health, lost weight and became a long distance runner. I worked hard and bought my own home!
I tried hard to get out there, but had absolutely no interest in dating. My friend Nicole insisted that I join a dating service or go to a friends party one Saturday night. I opted for the dating service because that seemed the least threatening. After answering oodles of questions I received my first set of “matches” …. and that was how I met Dan!
Dan and I dated for two years and I married this wonderful man in 2013. Another Moment of Yes! After moving to Fresno I decided to start a blog. When I told my gals pals I wanted to name my blog Bowl Me Over, it was a unanimous YES!
