Started in the fall of 2010, this blog was a way for me to journal and open up for discussion, my marriage, separation and, now, divorce. So, I started this site as a way for me to discuss my journey to ‘singled-om’. However, looking back and forward, I can honestly say that within this journey, I am finding my voice; my light. That light I kept hidden under a bushel these past 20 plus years. So now I discuss all that this journey teaches me in the hopes that I can inspire and shed a differently light on some of the very day situations.
I go by Nora Lane Pratt as this is a combination of the great women who shaped the foundation of my life. Nora was the name of my grandmother and Pratt was the maiden name of my great-grandmother. Ann MacGregor is a pseudonym of all those with me and before me – the name “Ann” is actually my middle name.
It is my hope that those who read this will do so with the sincerity that this site is intended and treat it with the tenderness it deserves. This is one woman’s journey out of a life she thought she wanted, to what was thought had to be, to the life that is, and finally to the one that she still hopes is possible… her own.
Most of my life has been spent on the outside looking in. However, this new freedom allows me the choice to come in from the shadows and not only notice the reflection in the window, but to admire it and perhaps at that time I’ll be able to come inside and spend life on the inside… not only looking out, but living each and every moment; authentically. Living life with my best friend, me.
