Who Am I?
I am a mother of 3 beautiful children under 7 and have mothered a step-son who is 17 and I will always be there for my Fiance’s boys who are all above the age of 17.
I am engaged to an amazing man that has given me so much confidence and unconditional love, which I never knew or thought was even possible for me. We both work full time and have very different hobbies. We work together in the same company, just different divisions. Riding to and from work with him is sometimes the only time we have to ourselves.
I am an artist. By this I do not mean just pen and paper, but with everything I do. I work in accounting and the organizational skills I utilize amazes my co-workers. I love that! I love to bake food and sweets for my family and friends, and often marathon my cookie making towards the end of the year. (Which is why I haven’t blogged about it yet!) I love to try new avenues for stress management.
I sing, I get lost in music, I’m a self taught pianist, and have written a few songs. Music is such a huge thing in my life. There is an amazing sense of wonder and relaxation when a song comes on that someone has poured their emotions into. It takes you away from your stressful situation, It releases you from obligation and it allows you to just be. I love music. I love accapella music as well. To find a group that just speaks to your heart with no instruments is a rare thing. So I tend to hold onto the groups I have found.
Why am I here?
Sit down and let me tell you a story. Ha! Its not that complicated. I am here because I want to inspire others. I want to be the reason someone tries something different. I want to be the reason someone doesn’t give up. I want to be the reason that change occurs in someone’s life. Maybe that makes me selfish.
I love to hear the stories of how someone inspired another to greatness. So, I try, I don’t give up and I work to make changes happen. I am on a path to enlightenment. I want to achieve greatness myself, to show the world that it is possible to rise from the ashes of a previous existence.
I want to share my experiences and my talent with others. I want people to learn from me. I want to be that someone that cares when others don’t. I’m reaching out for personal connections with people, especially those that may not get it otherwise. Life is too short for us to give up on humanity. So I choose to rise above the negativity. I choose to be different. I choose to think before I speak. I choose to put myself in someone else’s shoes before I judge them.
Am I perfect? Far from it my friend. But I choose to strive for perfection because I know that it will only make me a better person and my environment better for those around me. I choose to share my talent and my personal struggles with you in this blog. I choose to inspire.
I would also love to get to know all of you. Please don’t hesitate to send me your thoughts, suggestions, comments or concerns. I will reply as quickly as I can.
