I am a dreamer. I’ve always been a dreamer. Some may not have worked out the way I hoped they would, but I also believe that everything happens for a reason.
Writing has changed my entire life. It brings happiness and fulfillment to areas in my life that I didn’t even know I was missing. It’s also one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever done. It takes me away from my family, friends, and the little day-to-day tasks that once upon a time seemed normal. Sometimes I like to revisit my portfolio of old short stories, poems, and the inspirational quotes I have kept for many years. Reading through it all shows how far I’ve come and that the journey I am on now is exactly what I dreamed of many years ago. This makes me smile.
A long time ago, I used to write short stories and poems in journals and kept them privately to myself. It took quite some time and many sacrifices, but now I have three published books and have my very own writing cave. What the heck is that? Well, it’s my second home where I laugh, dream, imagine, and write my heart out to hopefully produce something that will make other people smile.
Never one to dwell on what I don’t have, I value what I do have. I couldn’t do what I do without the love and support from my husband, Henry Wasowski. We have been happily married for twenty two years and still have the passion from when we were first dating. Our love story created the family we have today, our three sons: Zachary, Christopher, and Cameron.
Family is everything to me. When I take a much needed time-out, I love to be with them, have friends over for wine night, and just talk and laugh for hours. Summer days in NJ are spent down the shore, and nights are spent at home around the fire pit toasting s’mores.
Life is an incredible journey.
We are all an open book. Every day is a new chapter to write in our story. Lessons are to be learned and shared.
Keep moving forward.
Never give up on your dreams.
Smile, and make others smile.
Believe me…Your spirit will thank you for it.
