Hi, I’m Janine. And this is my life.
About 18 months ago someone sent me this quote by coaching legend, Lou Holtz:
“In this world you’re either growing or you’re dying, so get in motion and grow.”
This resonated with me and, after considerable reflection, I decided to spend less time floating, and more time building a better life. My blog is my journal, and here I chronicle where I’m going, how I’m going to get there, and some of the stops along the way (and there seem to be a lot of stops!). This isn’t a straight path, it’s pretty random because frankly, I have a short attention span.
Here’s a bit about me: I’m in my 50s, born and bred in Calgary, Canada. My roots are Norwegian and English. I married an American and moved south about 2 decades ago and am now also a naturalized American citizen. My husband, G, is smart and patient and absolutely the funny one in the relationship. His career has taken us across the US but we’re now in Atlanta, Georgia with our two cats. My career hasn’t followed any path (regretfully) and I now work as an EA. Although I enjoy my job, it’s not particularly challenging, so this blog and my other interests keep me engaged.
I write about building the best life possible for the next many decades. These days, my interests tend to be family, home, gardening, pets, food and sewing. I’m also a follower of Marie Kondo and I’m doing my best to fill my life with things, people and activities that bring me joy.
Thanks for visiting! Hope to see you again soon.
