“Not-Your-Average” Self-Help/Feel Good Blog 

If you are looking for a site by a credentialed therapist, author and expert on divorce, break-up’s on being  able to break up amicably, parent perfectly and is now a billionaire and has testimony on how perfect life is and divorce is the best thing she could have done. Well dear, you came to the wrong place.

Instead you have come to a blog of someone who is on a rollercoaster of healing. I have cussed him out in front of my kids…I know I suck huh! I have groveled when I should have carried myself with dignity.

But guess what, I am a real person. I am eccentric, immature, too fun, too emotional and someone who was dumped in the worst possible way and no I am not over it four years later. I haven’t even started the divorce process because of my melt downs. This is the blog to follow if you are like me, keep making darn same mistakes!

Sometimes we have to pick ourselves up off the floor and dust ourselves off..and with one foot in front of the other, start-up that path. A new path. It is scarier than anyone can imagine but what else is there to do. At 50ish, I have to learn to take care of myself, by myself and be ok.  If you read my blogs, you will see why I call my journey a rollercoaster, one day, “I am She-Woman hear me roar”, and the next day I may be flat on the floor saying “Wah Wah, I can’t get off the floor!”

Visit my site often, follow me, give advice, take advise…sit down, put up your feet…stay awhile, sometimes when we have someone by our side, things just don’t seem as hard.

So glad you came….

About Catalina


When I started…January 17, 2013

Hi my name is Catalina, I was kicked to the curb after almost 30 years of being together/married. I was with this man since I was 17…a babe.

It hasn’t been peaches and orgasms, but it was my safety net, my blankie to keep me safe from facing the real world. My life was not happy with him. BUT IT WAS ALL I KNEW AND I WAS AFRAID OF THE WORLD!!

Who will fix my car! OMG I will have to make it by myself financially. Everything by myself! What if a man breaks into our house! (Note to self…buy a bat).

This blog is about my topsy-turvy crazy eccentric life and how I am dealing with it…let me back up…falling on my face, picking myself up over and over and over, dusting myself off…and going forward again…because I am going to do this thing called life…Independent Life and I welcome you to get some popcorn…sit down and enjoy the show!!!

This is what my blog is about… My trials.. my tribulations… my letdowns… my meltdowns… my victories… as a 50ish woman who has to make it on her own!

I leave you with this quote… I may be a little girl who wants someones  shoulder to cry on but I will grow and become a strong independent woman living on her own…AND LOVE IT!
