I am typing as I prepare to dash out the door for the WordPress Conference. I am so glad to be here. Happy I came. I was hesitant to attend as for the last four years I had let my health and depression define me. My husband said “Marlene you are going to this conference. You are still that independent woman I married 5 years ago. You don’t see her, I do.” He was right. I had let fear take over my life. After meeting and interacting with so many wonderful fellow bloggers at the mixer last night I can feel the old Marlene starting to shine through. Thrilled she’s back. I could say she never left she was hibernating. Time to wake up, smell the coffee and enjoy life. As I have said before I only get to do this once, it’s not a dress rehearsal. I let five years pass me by in a haze of not caring. For now, right this minute, I am back and running out the door to do something for myself. Learn, meet people and have fun. Woohoo!!!!
