Welcome to my blog, my name is Amber. Presently, I am 39 years of age but will be beginning another year….don’t say it! (You’re thinking it and so am I, but we are not saying it!!!) as I was saying beginning another year in three short months. And what do you know, it just so happens I am currently unemployed! I haven’t been unemployed for over 20 years, so I ask myself, “So, Now What?” Hey, I am not the only one asking me this question; my boyfriend is so lovingly and supportively asking me; his daughter is asking me; my sister is asking me; my mom is asking me, and I am pretty sure if my cat, Maximus, could speak he would also ask me, “So, Now What?”
A million dollar question! So, now what? Well, I guess I’ll start the blog I have been thinking about starting for well over 15 years! It’s such a cliché, I know, but so is being 39 and unemployed, right? Ok, so this is kind of sounding like a movie plot to me, is anyone else catching this vibe? If I was to star in a movie of my life this would be a movie where I came up with some brilliant business idea or product that helped people, animals, or both, and ran a dream company with a dream job living my dream life. Sounds dreamy, don’t cha think? In reality, this blog is currently the only thing I can come up with at the moment. Baby steps people! I have stared at the computer for well over 20 minutes thinking of a domain name, BECAUSE Sonowwhat.com is not available. Haha…..this is not one of those instances where if life gives you lemons you make lemonade. I have a slice of lemon in my water, one single slice, and I am totally good with that!
So here I am, introducing myself to the Internet because this is one of the things I have always wanted to do. I’m being brave, and pushing the publish button. I also love to cook and bake, spend time with my family and friends, go to Pilates class (which I went to this morning,) I love to travel, walk when the air is cool, play Rummikub with my mini BFF, sing karaoke– at home of course, and love taking care of my cat(s). I have one cat who lives with me, and my boyfriend has two cats, who I also think of as my cats (OUR cats) even though they live at his house. I hope somewhere someone who may be in the same life circumstance as I will read this, and find some inspiration and encouragement to be brave and follow a dream!
