Focusing on What’s Next

Reflecting back on my posts over the past eight months, holy crap! have I gone through a lot of changes. Some are good, some are not so good … some are my doing and others circumstantial. However, the one thing that stands out for me is what a different place I am in today as opposed to when I began Life After Normal.

When I started this blog, I decided that my tagline would be “Life Never Goes According To Plan … And Blogging is Cheaper and Easier Than Therapy!”. While this is certainly still true, I feel that this statement is no longer relevant to my current state of mind.

Back in August, I had so much anxiety, sadness, anger and uncertainty that I didn’t know where to turn. But eight months later, I feel that I have made a transformation — a small one, but a transformation nonetheless. I am no longer searching for answers, but rather trying to make myself a better and more complete (and happy!) person. The journey is ongoing — as are the emotions, challenges, and drama. But I’ve made some significant changes, and no longer feel that my focus is on “getting over it”, but rather “moving forward”.

That said, I present my updated tagline:

Navigating the unexpected in search of health and happiness

Although I do a lot of writing personally and professional, I am well aware that my weakness is coming up with creative headlines and titles that are short, snappy, and interesting. So I WELCOME any suggestions to improve the tagline to better articulate my journey!

Stay tuned — because remember, life never goes according to plan!

  1. How right you are! Life never goes according to plan. And that is why I never plan anything. I just go with the flow. Everyday is different and you never know what you are going to face. With that said, I always have a smile and my face and am ready to tackle whatever is in front of me. 🙂

  2. Remember what Bill Wilson used to say? If you want to make God laugh, say you have a plan for your life! Navigate the unexpected and the happiness will be there all along the way.
