My name's Dara (pronounced like "Sarah", but with a "D") and I'm a married mother of three, living in Denver. I love my husband. A lot. And I'm pretty proud of the unique way in which God knit our hearts together. Read all about our whirlwind relationship right here. I adore my children, despite the fact that they drive me batty often and with great relish. In short, I am beyond blessed that God chose me (me!!) to be the matriarch of this fantastic family, so I'm really just trying not to screw that up.
Living My Someday is where I encourage people to conquer fear, overcome failure, and make "someday", today! I do that by sharing information about hard-won life lessons, useful tips for the Whole30—an eating program that has changed my life!—and adventures with my family, whether we're hiking or heading out on the open road. In this way, I'm able to show my audience hard times have the power to make one better, not bitter, if they're willing to lean into the experience instead of running away from the fear. How did I learn this? Easy! I went through Hell.
Like many bloggers, I used this space share my day-to-day life with family and friends. Then, in the fall of 2014, my life changed quite drastically, and I was forced to come to some painful realizations about my existence. In the span of about six months, we went from being completely unhappy, coddled, and complacent people, to empowered and independent adults. Once God roused us from our stupor, my husband and I were able to reclaim our lives by doing whatever it took to reclaim our lives. That meant selling two cars and most of our possessions in order to fulfill our shared dream of calling Denver, Colorado home. It was difficult, sure, but it was the best decision we've ever made! There is so much to do here and we've soaked up every minute of it--from food festivals and museums in the summer, to hiking with the kids in the fall and snow play in the winter, we've done it all. For the first time in over a decade, we are enjoying our present while also looking ahead toward the brightest of futures.
You can do it, too! If you're stuck or feeling like you've missed too many chances and your life is over, this space is for you. You can achieve your dreams, but it will take everything you've got. It won't be easy, either, but it will be worth it. I was once where you may be now, wrestling with the uneasy feeling my life isn't unfolding the way it was meant to, trying to figure out how to readjust the sails and head in the right direction. I understand and I'm here to help.
