Distractions, Distractions, Distractions!

Sunday, March 15, 2009

It isn't so easy being a homeschooling mother, a wife, a writer, a business woman, and still finding the time for me. So, after years of not taking care of myself, I am on a new path. A path that leads to a healthier, happier, stronger Jeanette.

This year will be just as complicated as the last difficult six. Thank goodness it's in different ways. This year I have many goals I let go by the wayside after being blindsided by tragedy. My writing is no longer as much a chore because my brain has mostly recovered, so I will get that book published that practically did before the accident. I am already on the road to making that happen.

On August 22, even though we took care of the legal part last November, I will marry the only man I have ever known that was worthy of my love. We will stand before our families and our God and commit to make this as fantastic as I know it can be.

This year my children have been able to be involved in all the activities that where just to hard to do without my husband who passed by my side. I was just to tired and fighting too hard to survive to worry about the extras.

This year I start dancing again, despite the fact I have enough metal in my body to build another human being. Belly dance, ballroom, and ME! I will use those things I LOVE to get my body back. I reclaim everything I was and more, because I am so much more for having gone through that valley!

So, all my passions come back into focus. I will use those passions to reclaim myself. I will take back that power inside of me, and what comes from my God, to become, to morph, to recharge, and reclaim.

Watch out world, Jeanette is back and kicking ass!!

    I am so impressed with how much you have overcome and how strongly you are determined to look forward. I love your distinction between "Jeanette" and Jeanette's "body". You will do this because you are finding ways to make it what you want, rather than what you need. Way to go. emoticon
