Welcome to Cottage Dreaming. Today I begin a journey. One that will be shared with you. At the age of 36 I am at a turning point in my life. Some of you may have already crossed this bridge and for some it is still awhile away. As a women, I have found, that we go through many stages in our lives. In our twenties we discover our Independence and our adult voice. Some of us find true love and begin families. Some choose careers. We feel that we know ourselves and the direction our lives are heading. Still youthful in our thoughts knowing that the World is our oyster and time is irrelevant. Then it hits.... Thirty something and you wake up one day and the things you thought worked..don't, the idealism of life has changed, you suddenly have a deeper sense of who you are and an awareness of how quickly life has gone by. You question your priorities, your job, your ability to parent, your finances and decide that today is the day. Every moment is precious. You want to be surrounded by people and experiences that only add a positive direction to your life. In some ways for the first time you truly validate yourself and give yourself permission to completely be happy. I am here. This freedom has provided me an insight into my life and I am making changes that were Oh so needed. Please join me as I create the life I was born to live, the home that I wish for my family to be surrounded by and the person inside and out that I want to be.
