Well, I just now came back to this “about me” page and realized that it is outdated.
Not even going to give you my age. I started this blog in 2012, it was a great year! A lot of changes, much progress in different areas of my life.
I wear lots of hats like most of us: mother, wife, employee, teacher, writer, daughter, aunt . . . . oh you know it goes on and on. I’ve finally decided what I want to be when I grow up and intend to pursue it the only way I know how – with intense passion.
I am a person of extremes. It’s all or nothing. You’re with me or you’re not, and I’m OK with that. I’ve spent the majority of my life living other people’s dreams, pursuing their goals, and setting mine on a shelf while trying to be what I thought others expected of me.
It’s a dead end – be real, be true to yourself!
Mothers tend to be nurturing caregivers and forget to take care of themselves. Guilty! Unfortunately, I waited until a serious diagnosis to make necessary changes.
Somewhere back there, many years ago I gave up on me. Now, I’m taking my life back by force. I’m a cancer survivor. Let’s just say I ‘m a survivor – as my grandfather used to say about strong women, a tough ol’broad. I used to resent the saying, now I embrace it.
So, buckle up, hands and feet inside the vehicle, and enjoy the ride.
