I read a phrase that has stuck with me. “I’m living my best life”. I originally started writing my memoirs as a type of therapy.  I was lonely, depressed, and I felt like I’d lost myself.  My memoir is not a book of parenting advice or even really about my kids.  It’s selected collection of short stories detailing the scenarios I have gotten myself into. 


I started a journal hoping to make myself happier. Within my writing journey, I discovered I’m hilarious. My stories are not made up and in 99% of the situations I found myself in, people have borne witness to the hilarity. In my self-discovery journal, I realized that I am living my best life. Sure, there are days that I rely on The Disney Channel so I can get house work done, but I’m doing the best I can and guess what? The best I can is good enough for us.
