Hey y’all! I’m Lindsey. For the past ten years, I have been in a consistent state of war. A war with the universe.
I have wrestled with the notion that perhaps the Universe hates me.
I thought to was going about everything correctly. I graduated law school, married, full time job, paying taxes and going to church. You might understand why I was confused that my life continued to fall apart
After 5 years of infertility, the hubs and I completed an international adoption of a biological sibling set. We would go on to have 5 more adoptions fall through for a smattering of crazy reasons.
On February 9, 2014, my baby brother lost his battle with depression and took his own life. It was exactly one month after his 29th birthday.
Less than four months later, my precious Daddy and the first man I ever loved, died of a heart attack.
Less than two years later, a set of grandparents left this earth within months of one another and in June of 2016, I lost a woman whom I count as my 2nd mother. She fought breast cancer for almost a year.
I started screaming the only four letter word that felt right.
Quitting has become the model from which I have revamped my life.
I have quit dieting, everything I thought I knew about parenting and marriage, the expectations people and society believed I should have and most recently, we paid off massive debt, allowing me to quit my law practice after 12 years.
I write, speak, cook and travel, all in the sake of finding my own way, by quitting the crap that didn’t work.
I love having you here and I hope you find the strength and support to quit whatever is holding you back in life too.
Hugs and love,
