Earlier in the day my son and I went to a local business expo in our town that involved many different businesses within the surrounding area of which we live. It was quite family-friendly, as they had a face painter, magician, a clown performing tricks, dancers, and various other performances/showcases for the amusement of the kids in attendance. My son absolutely loved the face painter, who just so happens to be a parent of one of his cooking classmates. A small world for sure! Not only did I meet this woman, but many other business professionals, along with learning about various companies and their services within my local community. It was a definite success of a morning all around.
|Pirate EJ from earlier today!!!|
For the past 4-1/2 years, I've been known as EJ's/Elias' (he goes by both names) mom.
For the past 9+ years, I was known as Ski's wife / Woz's wife. Those are the 2 nicknames my ex went by with his friends and co-workers. Of course now we can make that ex-wife. LOL
Before I stopped working due to my Multiple Sclerosis, I worked in the business world from the time I was 16 until the age of 37 as someone's assistant, administrative assistant, secretary, right-hand-person, etc.
For the past 43-years I've been someone's daughter, granddaughter, sister, and niece.
Someone's cousin for 38 years and sister-in-law for 22 years.
I've been a woman with Multiple Sclerosis for the past (almost) 12-years.
When I get a chance, which is rare, I like to bake, create various birthday/anniversary/occasion cards, even dabble in point-and-shoot photography. Oh, and we can't forget I'm a sporadic blogger!

But, still, that doesn't answer who I am, or what my story is. It's like I'm missing a passion and a direction in my life, which upsets me more than words can say. I'm a Pisces for crying-out-loud!!! We're passionate people!!! We're dreamers!!! But with all these things I listed above and enjoy doing when I get the chance, there's still something missing; and I can't put my finger on it.
When I started this blog around the time my ex moved out, I named it "Rediscovering Kristyn" in the hopes that I would find out who I am. But as we can see by this post, that hasn't happened. I'm so caught up in everything else going on around me and living my life in a reactive way, that I haven't been proactive in learning who and what I am about. I'm 43-years old and still have no clue. I have to admit, I find it quite disheartening to say the least. Will I ever figure it out? Will I ever have an answer to the question "So what's your story?"
I guess that is the million dollar question. But that leads me to one more question then...If I do figure it all out, do I get the million dollars?!?!?!!!!! ROFL!!!
Wishing you peace, love, and happiness,
