Hi. My name is Melissa.
After a divorce and major life transition in my mid-thirties, I awoke to the discovery that I was in a sense starting over and on my own for the very first time. I decided to start “Dog-Paddling Life” to share with others who had and are continuing to go through changes in their lives. This blog serves as an accountability partner of sorts, to keep me going when the going is more than tough, and to share my progress and the small but personally monumental accomplishments of the daily grind. Come along with me and share in the journey. I would love to hear from you, what helps you get through the day and what things you have learned along the way. Paddle water with me and maybe in some way we can be a lifeline to each other!
Remember, no matter what life throws your way, always hold your head high and tell youself (out loud if need be), “I got this!”
