And so it begins

I am suddenly single for the first time in my life since I was 11 years old. I'm now 44. 33 years in long-term relationships! How do I even begin to know how to be single? 

I was journaling a little while ago and wrote: 

I just need to focus on my own healing and learning to be my own person without so much influence from another. 

I want to know who I really am. Who am I when it is just me, myself, and I, and not me with another person in my life that I have to cohabitate with as a cohesive and functioning unit. Who am I when I can make my own decisions without having to consult with another person? Who am I when I can do what I want, when I want, where I want? 

It will be interesting to see who and what I become. It makes me feel a bit better thinking of it this way. Talk about one of life’s greatest adventures. The Great Adventure of being my own self.

Ha ha, that made me just think about writing a blog about this adventure. The Great Adventure of Becoming Me. 

And so here I am, starting a new blog as part of this new Great Adventure of Becoming Me. I want to chronicle this very important journey and thought that maybe some people out there would (hopefully) find my journey helpful in their own journeys of getting to know who they really are as they travel through their own great adventures of becoming them. 

At the very least I think this will be an interesting way to chronicle this new journey I am on.
