Having a mental breakdown was uncomfortable in so many ways. It happened as I was approaching forty and precipitated lots of change. Life begins at forty, I’ve seen a lot. Well, re-building my life was certainly underway.

Before, I did things to be better than others.
Now, I do things to be a better version of myself.
