Share your "second chance" story and win!
Inspired by the theme of the captivating new movie, "Nights in Rodanthe" (in theaters September 26th), we asked a few BlogHers to share a personal, life-changing, second chance story.
Check out their amazing stories, and then share your own "second chance" story in the comments section below for a chance to win a Nights in Rodanthe prize pack!
Mr. Lady shares the lessons that she and her husband learned after walking away from an eight-year marriage:
Schmutzie traded passion on her job for true love - and then set out to find a way to have both:
I am a lover of words. I could sell a thousand watches and yet never
feel the rush that a good turn of phrase could send thrumming through
my brain. I knew that I had to get back to words and fast, but I didn't
know where to start.
Michelle Woo tossed aside her list of romantic expectations, and found her dream guy was there all along:
Leah's path to romance was full of twists and turns:
Lindsay walked away from an onscreen career, and found a new career that let her be who she really is:
... on TV, I was someone I wasn't in real life. I was a buttoned-up newswoman with carefully sprayed hair and perfect makeup. It just didn't mesh with the real me, who had been in hiding since I started my television news career at the age of 21.
