Society puts so much worth in our resumes. I was once the leader of the pack, in my professional genre, when it came to who I was professionally and what I could produce, -complete with data and graphs to “prove” my worth. Then my well-laid plans took a detour to a new adventure by leading me to my passion of Writing. When health, family, new residence, and divorce took the front burner, then I knew that I was ready to make decisions to do “professional suicide”. That is precisely what I did! I never looked back, especially when I realized how much time and energy I had given to others agendas and goals….time and energy off my back and my family’s back. Time is not renewal, but with God, He “redeems the time”. When I had a large office, with the cherry wood furniture and all of the nonsensical tchotchkes that proved my worth to others, I used to secretly fantasize about one day doing what I “really loved”…..writing books, petting my cats, and sipping coffee. I am completely a homebody, and I so understand Ernest Hemingway. Little did I know that while I continued to run the race on my professional hamster wheel, that a few small decisions could bring me to the fast route to how I truly wanted to live my life. It is funny how when you have faith in God, how the verse, “He will give you the desires of your hearts,” can actually come alive and make your heart skip a beat. Nothing comes without cost and life would be drab without life lessons. So, here I sit on my couch, – cats sound asleep by my side, coffee (sometimes tea) on my coffee table, and my bachelor and masters degrees hanging on my bedroom wall collecting dust as the cats meander by. Do I miss the administrative bustle and my name at the top of all important papers? Nope. Occasionally I wish for a day with the 3″ high heels, but to be honest, -my toes are thanking me as I lounge here in my pink piggy slippers. I have so much to share about my life journey. My God-given gift is to share the various lessons I have learned on my half century walk while on this beautiful globe. I don’t have all the answers, and my journey is only halfway through, so there are many more lessons to learn. Writing is my passion and gift, so let me inspire you to live your life with joy, freedom, satisfaction, and peace. Enter…………
