Welcome to my Blog. I wanted to start a blog to share my experiences in the retail industry as many people have experienced similar issues of burnout, stress, insensitive managers, immature colleagues…the list goes on. I wanted to document my journey from leaving behind a “drudgery” job to finding something that gives me meaning, purpose, and happiness.
I am from a small town in Northwestern Ontario. . I have my own neurosis called anxiety and am learning to embrace my highly sensitive nature. Anxiety makes life challenging but it also keeps me on my toes. I have an amazing therapist who has been my life preserver since I moved to this crazy city called Toronto.
I lost my father to cancer and my mother recently to what we believe was a heart attack. Grief will be a topic that will show up in my blog. If it didn’t, I would be really surprised.
I also work as an on-call chaplain at a local hospital. I probably could be called the most secular of everyone who works in my field. I am Catholic, but I don’t prescribe to all the ideals of Catholicism. That’s a whole other conversation.
I am happily married to my best friend. We both love dogs and all things dog. We do not own a dog(s), yet.
Thank you for sharing this crazy journey called life with me.
