I started cello lessons.  I'm loving it!  I played clarinet and piano as a child but started cello at age 64.  It feels amazing to do something that brings me joy.  I have my first concert with my students in a few days.  I am a teacher and learning along side my 3rd graders.


I now realize where I'm at in my journey and can now see where I want to go to find joy and peace as a caregiver.  Thank you for helping me personalize my plan that is simple.  My two wins are planning out my week and getting up 30 minutes earlier.

In the face of unimaginable circumstances, life threw me a double challenge ‚Äď caring for my father with Pancreatic Cancer and my husband battling Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Recognizing the urgent need for self-care, I embarked on a journey of healing, discovering how to prioritize myself without guilt or shame.
