Back in April 2003, I had a minor car accident that was a major wake-up call. No need to rehash the drama here, but suffice it to say that at the age of 40, life was not turning out as I had planned. The past five years have been a slow, steady, intentional re-design of my life. I'm guessing that I'm not the only woman who's figured some things out the hard way, so if you're out there and want to compare notes, please join in! In the meantime, here's where I'll explore, integrate and share what it means to continue designing my life.
