mom, cyclist, yogini, therapist and writing enthusiast…
Hello and thank you for visiting onehipdiva! I began this journey as a blogger on March 3, 2011, but I have been writing in journals ever since I was 14 years old. I love sharing my experiences as a woman, a mother, and a seeker of all things new and challenging. I also love hearing your feedback and your own personal stories. Together we can pave a path of friendship and solidarity. Life isn’t always easy but we can create a community of support by sharing our personal challenges and victories.
By day I work as the Academic Dean of Presentation High School in San Jose. I’m also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and hope to enjoy a private practice again in the near future. Change is good.
…Challenging, but good.
Since I began my blogger journey, I’ve sold my big house and purchased a townhome. (Difficult..) I’ve taken up photography as a hobby. (Fun!) And I’ve welcomed two beautiful young women into our family along with two delightful grandsons! I never imagined this brand of joy💕. It’s quite excruciating!
When I’m not at my computer writing I am usually looking for little scraps of paper to write ideas on for the next time I’m at my computer writing! I must admit, writing is a full time job. Every experience in a day is potentially a good story!
My all consuming joy in life has been being mom to Robert, Patrick and Peter and watching them grow and develop into wise and compassionate young men. It has infused my life with more meaning and purpose than I could ever have imagined. I look forward to enjoying my growing family and continuing to write and write and write some more.
I hope you will join in this journey with me as you continue on yours!
Peter, Bear, Rosemarie, Nazaneen, Patrick, Brianna, Boe, and Robert
