“Life is a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs.
But it’s your choice to scream or enjoy the ride.”
Welcome to Roller Coaster Ride!
I am Janice, the author of this blog. That’s me in the photo with my little blended family.
Years ago, people thought I was living the perfect life. I was the responsible daughter and supportive sister. I was doing good with my MBA classes. I had a hardworking husband, two adorable daughters, and businesses with lots of potential for success.
What they didn’t know was that what looked perfect on the outside was actually a mess on the inside. My marriage was crumbling and our businesses were failing. I wasn’t even sure what an MBA degree would do for me when I knew deep inside that the corporate life wasn’t what I wanted.
I had created a life that I thought would make my family and friends proud of me. But it just left me feeling trapped, dissatisfied and unhappy.
Deep inside, I knew the kind of life I wanted to live. I just didn’t know how to start living it, until one fateful day when I decided that life is all about taking risks. That in order to live the life I wanted, I had to let go of the life I had. So I did. I chased my dreams.
Now, I’m happy working from home as a writer. I finally realized writing has always been my true passion from the very beginning.
My marriage may have failed but that’s okay because it has led me to find the love of my life. Now, we also have the sweetest little boy to add to our modern family.
Finding my voice as a writer and navigating the ups and downs of our modern family life is not always easy. Life is still not perfect (and it never will be) but I’m finally happy. This is where I write all about that journey.
Through this blog, I wish to help others realize that there’s always hope and that it’s never too late to change their lives.
With my stories, I hope that work-at-home moms like me find the inspiration they need here to continue chasing their dreams while juggling the demands of being wife and mom with love and grace.
Lastly, through our own experiences, I hope to change people’s traditional definitions of love and family.
Let’s all enjoy the ride!
