I am a Mother of 3 and grandmother of 5. I am a recently retired Baby Boomer born in 1949. I have wanted to write for a very long time, but didn’t have the time. Isn’t that always the excuse? The loss of my job in February of 2015 took care of that. After I got the news, I was upset, scared, shocked…all of the above, but then I tried to look at the situation I found myself in as a beginning instead of an ending. What was it I always wanted to do but never did, due to lack of time? The answer came to mind quickly, almost as if that light bulb they always talk about went off. Write. Now, I will be the first to tell you I am not a writer by any stretch of the imagination, nor do I pretend to be. I had done a little bit of writing in school and then again when my kids were little. I took some “Writing Children’s Literature” classes and even got a diploma. I sent a variety of stories, books and short stories off to no avail and so I gave up. I did put them together as books and even illustrated them myself and read them to my kids. They loved them.. But I digress.. In other words, the time has come for me to write. And write I will.
I have so much to say and talk about. Anyone who knows me will agree with this statement. OK, I do say whatever comes to mind and speak out when asked or even when not asked. I have a social media presence and have started some groups on Facebook. But there is so much more I want to talk about and share and now I have a forum for that. This blog.The name of the blog came to me first, because I want to share helpful tips and second because when I was a kid my Dad called me a little “Hellion.”
I love sharing tips on some of my many interests, including but not limited to, health/wellness, fashion/beauty, and also just about life in general.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my blog.
