Why Blog?

My favorite movie quote is “Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome” ~ Hope Floats, and that is what my blog is about — overcoming.

Hi! I’m Gabi Grace, well actually that is a pen name. I was nicknamed Gabi by my high school French teacher who thought I had the gift of gab, and Grace is a family name.

My blog will cover many different topics and events that happened in my life.  I have overcome many childhood traumas in my lifetime…and my blog tells the story of some of those events…

I feel that I have overcome my childhood because I have exceeded all expectations of how I might turn out in light of all of these disastrous childhood events. I am married with two wonderful children (who are now adults). I have recently completed a Master’s Degree. My daughter just graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree, and my son is a College Junior and Athlete. My husband and I are happy and love each other dearly.

I lost both of my parents a few years ago, and I now feel the need to tell my story. Despite my early traumas I do want to emphasize that I loved both of my parents dearly. They made mistakes, I make mistakes, we all do.

Why Am I Blogging?

I have searched for many, many years for what I am supposed to do with my life.  People say that your purpose is something that you have always been good at…but for me I just couldn’t think of anything that I especially excelled in…

Something that I read recently about discovering your purpose in life made me think back to when I was younger, and what I used to love to do then, and that was writing poetry and short stories.

I’ve always been told that I was a good storyteller, so I hope that you all will agree and find my blog encouraging in the fact that despite numerous difficult life experiences, I was able to overcome the challenges, not become a statistic, and achieve great things in life…despite a rough start!
