Live ...

I watched AUNTIE MAME the other day, and it got me to thinking. How much do we as women LIVE? We do our jobs, take care of our family, and put our hearts in everybit of this, but do we LIVE, LIVE, LIVE??

I know in the day to day, we somehow forget we had thoughts, wants, and desires, that we were once individuals before we were mothers, wives, friends, co-workers. We had passions, hopes, and dreams before we got to BUSY living!!

I decided it was time to take some of my interests off the shelf and LIVE a little. So I am asking you to do it with me? I know, guilt will follow. It is the ugly monster that keeps us from fulfilling our dreams, but don't let him win. You have nothing to feel guilty about. We as women have an inate sense of others built in, if this weren't true, we wouldn't have to take the time to remember ourselves. So just pick one thing you have put on hold, and plan to go for it. Look in the mirror and tell your beautiful self that you are worth more than what you have been giving yourself. Let's keep in touch with what we are doing. I am going for a paralegal certificate, and making a change in career at 35 is not as easy as it sounds, so I will keep you posted.

Please talk to me and tell me what you plan on doing for you at We are going to feel better about ourselves, and breathe a fresh breath of air for the first time in years.

Let's GO!
