Welcome to my journey…
I begin the journey of rebuilding my personal “brand”.

This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.
Hello! I started this blog to share my thoughts, ideas, and hopefully inspire you. When I turned 50 years “young” in 2017. I was in a downward spiral of a marriage, financial turmoil, looking for permanent employment, and emotionally a mess as you could imagine. Now that I look back throughout my marriage. I realize now that I spent all of my energy trying to save my marriage and trying to secure permanent employment. But if that wasn’t enough I pretended to be happy. Because, I felt I had to since I was on a nonprofit board for a local support group, and trying my best to keeping up appearances with family and friends. This all came crashing down, fall of 2017. I filed for a divorce and bankruptcy. As well, attempting to hold it together in a new position. I lost myself along the way from the marriage and giving all I had to save it. That brings me to this moment.
Now that my divorce is behind me and I have a permanent job with a very supportive company. I begin the journey of rebuilding my “brand”. Who is Morgan and what kind of woman do I want to be in my new found freedom as a single woman? Over the past year and a half, I have been focusing on bettering myself. Some of the things that I have started are veganism, mindfulness meditation, yoga, and sewing to name a few. Of course, giving the first year after my divorce time to heal, and allowing my self the time to grieve. My journey began with me taking stock in my value, taking inventory of myself worth, as well as loving myself again.
This might sound odd to some of you, but looking back on the past 8 years of my life; the path that I was on. I am grateful the universe has given me this “opportunity” if you will to realize that I have real value. I say that as I now understand the things that I did incorrectly in my marriage. Nevertheless, that is all behind me and today I go through life with intent, determination, and self-respect.
