You know that feeling you get when you stop to think for a minute or so?
That this life isn’t quite what you expected?
That this isn’t the way it’s meant to be?
This is not the life you wanted?
That strange, disconnected, feeling that leaves you thinking “WTF do I do now?”
Been there. Done that. I’ve bought the t-shirt and the t-towel. This wasn’t how my life was going to turn out either. I was going to get married, have children, and live the nice, happy, contented, life.
Yeah, well, things didn’t quite work out that way for me.
Instead, I made some choices, and had some choices made for me. I don’t have children, and I never will now. And I wouldn’t wish that pain on anyone.
I married late, was the size of a small, 2-bedroomed cottage in my wedding dress, and I’ve lived with Depression for most of my 47 years.
Oh no, this really wasn’t how things were meant to turn out.
And then there was that time when the earth moved. Literally. And it kept moving. And somewhere in the midst of the aftershocks I realized that this Unexpected Life is too damn short to be miserable.
So I became Countess Drusilla Steele. And let me tell you, Darlings, she’s gorgeous! Part goth, part Vampire, all Wild Woman.
And the Countess is on a mission.
The sole reason I get out of bed in the mornings is to help you with your pain. Help you get to the point where I am now. Where I can live with the hurt of not having children, but can still have a happy, fulfilled life. It’s taken me a long time to get here. I don’t want you to take this long.
My Unscheduled, Unconventional Life won’t be wasted. And neither will yours. We’ll help each other, learn from each other, and share our wisdom with the world.
Come join my Crusade!
Let’s start with an online coffee chat, shall we?
