To make this venture slightly less terrifying, I am using the pen name “Sunny” to share my story. The name is symbolic, which I will explain in a future post. The person behind the name could be described as a wisecracking, soft-spoken, no-nonsense, debt-ridden, conscientious, animal loving, carb addicted, exercise aversioned, answer seeking, at times disillusioned, geeky, chronically sleepy, twitchy, disheveled, former Type-A personality - with an attention deficit. Someone making a sorted effort to look for the bright side, find the humor, open new doors, and fulfill creative impulses as I try to make sense of life after sudden loss. All attempted while simultaneously muddling through a high stress job where I save the world, pedal papers, avert lawsuits, extinguish fires, placate soul sucking drones...oh and help children succeed. A career choice made before the world as I knew it turned upside down, creating a domino effect of life altering events. Events that were so overwhelming that they seem to have rewired some of my brain’s neural pathways, switched the lenses I once used to perceive life, and forever changed my thoughts about the world and my place in it.
