I am a 40-something woman experiencing the biggest adventure of my life – trying to live my life on my own terms. Surprisingly, this isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Like many women of my generation, I felt compelled to try to fit myself into the traditional gender role of wife, mother and homemaker, but to do so I had to turn my back on my passion for adventure. When I found myself unable to find happiness and satisfaction in my life I assumed I was a failure as a woman. Rather than continue on in my misery I made some difficult decisions that flew in the face of convention. Coming to terms with these decisions has been an arduous process, but it has been worthwhile as it has been through the strong support of my family and friends that I have broken free from the shackles of guilt and begun to live the life I was meant to live.
Now I invite you to join me on my journey as I begin to explore the world around me – here in Alaska and beyond.
