First of all, I was extremely flattered to be approached by Second Firsts (www.secondfirsts.com) to be part of the 30 Days of Hope project. Christina Rasmussen is a speaker, therapist and coach who, in addition to her own blog, writes for the likes of Huffington Post and was nominated as the Leading Mom in Business by StartupNation. This project is part of the launch of her first book, Second Firsts: Live, Laugh, and Love Again. She asked several “inspirational” men and women to, over the course of 30 days, share a piece of their story with her followers. So, here’s mine! Feels like I’m stepping out of a safe, shady box to have my face and voice and words projected through video – it was a practice in vulnerability! Good thing I feel safe with ya’ll… Thanks for your constant and amazing support blog world!
