I’m in a new place.

Call it what you will.

I no longer live in fear of not having, not doing or not being enough.

I am free of having to compete, of having to accomplish, of having to have.

I’ve turned my back on living a crazy life where nothing ever felt in control, and life never felt right. I’ve made a big income and left it because, it too, wasn’t enough.

My life was not designed to be stressful, disconnected or out of control.

My life was designed for peace, connectedness and to be full of truly good things.

Go ahead – believe that I’ve flipped my lid, but I am done with lap-dogging for the top dogs, I’m done with trying to be anything. I’m done with teams that lead and clubs that exclude.

Instead I look for the things that I was meant to learn from others, or from my interactions with them.

I’m living FREE and with control for the very first time.

Free to listen. Free to learn. Free to do those things which bring life to those in my life.

If you’ve read this far, know that we are connected, and I hope that even just by reading this I’ve put some new life into your day, your outlook, or your life.

Go ahead…I dare you to ask me questions….

    November 20, 2007 at 9:12 pm eI love this about you. There are many things I admire and love about you, and this is but one of them. I have enjoyed watching you this past year or so grow into someone who knows how to slow down and have some fun. To do things with your child that will create wonderful memories for the both of you. For bringing out the creative side of yourself. I always knew it was there, but you so seldom let it loose. I also love your use of the English language to teach someone about you, themselves or whatever else there is to know about. You are one of the smartest women I know and am proud to call you my daughter.

    Though you posted this quite a while ago, 2007, you are still inspiring and supporting others who are choosing or have chosen similar paths to yours. Thank you. I was corporate and am now working in social services and LOVING it.

    Funny that I actually have a bunch of little knitted and appliqued items that fit the “what am i making this for/what is this good for” category. Where changing my work totally makes sense, I’ve got some growing to do on the accepting creativity … for what it is? don’t know.

    Glad to find this place. Bookmarking now.
