The Most Important Things I Learned About Myself, I Learned Through Freelancing

I never expected to become a freelance writer. Yet, 14 years, an MSc, two kids, and a failed marriage later, here I am.

I was home for them before and after school. I went on all their field trips. I volunteered at their school all the time.

I don’t like the term “midlife crisis.” That makes this time in life sound horrifying, a time when I have so much to look forward to and so many ambitions. But first, let’s go b...
