Why am I doing this?

As modern US women, we have so many options to live life, it is almost paralyzing.   I have am currently living non-traditionally by most standards, but have shape-shifted multiple time flirting with convention and non-convention.  Ten years ago I was on a different path.  I was madly in love, ready to get married, stay in a ‘sensible’ job, and have 2.5 children and a golden retriever.  But when the man I loved decided he needed more women, I starting questioning my old thoughts on commitment.  My sensible firm offered me more money to stay –I quit and traveled the world.  We are responsible for our own happiness and life demands constant reinvention.  But I realize that each woman has a different definition of what that is.  I would like to learn from their paths to better understand my own, and share the stories of different and inspiring choices.


The road trip is just the beginning.
