You know, it feels like the perfect time to put this series out. When I posted the news that I’d be blogging with The Huffington Post Canada’s Parents section to my Facebook the other night, the outpouring of support was astoundingflooring me with how happy friends were with this new milestone — I even had people I hadn’t spoken with since high school reaching out to learn more about my writing journey that’d gotten me to working with HuffPo!

I’ve looked to put this blog series out since August but struggled with it, trying to frame the major lessons I’ve learned in my three decades so far into something meaningful.

With a lot of thought and plenty of words.
