“We’ll find each other soon”, a phrase frequently used by my mom, has now become a moniker or sorts for me. I find myself using it with a great deal of joy and conviction, as relationships have new meaning at mid-life. They surprise, they are alive. Life has brought me here, or more accurately, I brought myself.

Three years post-divorce, I decided to write what I’ve learned, how I got here, and where I’m going.  This blog is for:

  • One who believes they are alone with their thoughts, though wants to become more open with others.
  • One who thought they’d ever experience a mid-life divorce.
  • One who could not begin to conceive a time estranged from their children and how to cope and regain self-worth, self-care and a deeper understanding of empathy.
  • One who’s allowed fear their greatest influence, yet has fiercely broken that behavior.
  • One who thought they knew what compassion was, yet knows better now.
  • One who yearns for learning without limits.

Hi, I’m Carin. Thank you for joining me. You are always welcome here.

  1. Hello. Good luck with your blog, I’m sure you have a good audience out there. I found it because I typed in ‘women over 50’ in my Reader search and up you popped!


    1. Haha. Awesome! Have little idea who’s “out there” in cyber land, though turns out, at 55, writing is bigger than I. I’m catching up to my words and thoughts. That you took the time to comment, thank you, kindly.


  2. Carin! How great to read your blog! I too, as you know have been dealt some very intense life turns over the last year. Struggle is so hard, harrowing, painful for so many different reasons for each of us but the common thread is our inner strength, most of the time we never really knew we had that keeps us moving. Thank you for this space to feel a sense of belonging in all that struggle. Look forward to reading more.
