It has always been my nature to keep painful parts of my life private. The most painful being the loss of my mom. But over the years, I’ve had this need to express in writing about my experience with grief. So, with encouragement from loved ones I decided to start this blog.
I chose the title Open Book Life because it represents my decision to openly share things about my life. I feel that it will help me through my long healing process. At the same time, maybe my blog will help others going through similar experiences in their lives.
Living through grief will be a common theme of my blog, but I also intend to share thoughts on other things. Despite sadness, my life is also filled with humor, interesting people and places I’ve visited. All of these experiences have shaped me into the person I am today.
If you’d like to share some of your own experiences please do. I love learning from others.
