Maybe you’ve stumbled across my blog and we have a particular thing in common, or perhaps not. Either way, welcome! I’m Ruth.
After my marriage unexpectedly broke down in 2012, I resigned from my job and undertook a career change (because of course it’s best to undertake several major life changes at once!). My experiences of separation, divorce and career change are some of the main topics I write on, in amongst other reflections on life, and my recently published book, Surviving Separation and Divorce, seeks to help others through that traumatic time.
I decided the best way to tell the world about my life changes was through writing in my first major post Out of Control. It was terrifying (read here) and exhilarating to share my writing and my story, in equal measure. This step rekindled my long-forgotten love of writing and I haven’t look back.
I was previously a classroom teacher and now I’m a heritage education officer. I’m a baker, a Christian, a grammar pedant, a little bit off-the-wall at times, and regularly give astounding musical performances while driving my car. I love to watch sport, but my gym attendance is reluctant.
Here at the entirety of life I hope that you’ll be able to find a voice for what you might be feeling. I hope you’ll find a friend in those times you might feel most alone.
I’d love to hear what you think: do get in touch with me on firstname.lastname@example.org
