My name is Simone and I am in the throes of a mid-life crisis.

I’m not sad but I’m not happy either. The last year has been eventful, both happy and sad.

I lost my mother in October 2018, ended an on-again/off-again, toxic relationship for good in December 2018, started a new job in January 2019, then moved from Toronto to Ottawa for the job in February 2019. Prior to that, I was dealing with the death of my father and serious physical and mental health issues.

Apparently that was not enough of a life upheaval for me. I was in need of more change in my life so:

  • In April, I started working out with a personal trainer 3x per week at GoodLife;
  • I chopped off all my hair in May;
  • I signed up for a stand-up comedy class that starts in August!

I also want to start dating again…kinda.

Through it all, I’ve managed to keep my sense of humour about everything. Sometimes, even in the darkest hour, all you can do is laugh.

I don’t want to waste any more time. I want to live my best life! To do that, I want to get into shape and step outside of my comfort zone.

This site will chronicle my Journey Back to Life.
