In Jill’s blog, you’ll read stories about how Jill let go to navigate the nuances of everyday living to create a life she loves. After leaving an unhappy relationship, she found herself in a whole new world. One that was far from perfect, but offered her newfound hope and a chance to have what she’s always wanted—a happy marriage, a budding career as a writer, and a growing sense of inner peace. In each article, Jill gets on the bumper cars of life, showing us how to use the art and practice of letting go with humor and grace to enjoy the ride.
Jill Sherer Murray boldly tackles subjects that matter to women of all ages. Through an honest, compelling, and funny narrative, she takes us on a journey of rebirth in mid life, asking the questions we all ask ourselves: What happens when we reach our forties and haven’t realized all the dreams of our twenties, like marriage, family, career? What happens when we must squarely face our mortality, dwindling fertility, and the fact that we don’t have forever to write that novel? Sherer Murray explores everything from leaving a life behind in Chicago and moving to a small town in Pennsylvania, entering the world of Internet dating, finding love, and then finding out that a relationship comes with baggage. Along the way, she builds a life, a community, and a family, writing about her experiences with grace, pathos, and yes, humor, illuminating for all her readers that realm we call midlife.
