...and Creating Your Life Is Better than Waiting for It to Unfold

I know, I know, it sounds like a fridge magnet, but I'm beginning to get it.

The last two years I've been like some half-hatched bird, chipping away at my trappings with a busted egg-tooth, and now I'm ready for the next step - you know, the one that sends me hurtling through space wondering if these new wings will work.  A scary thing, jumping into the unknown, but I'm raising a daughter who deserves to grow up unafraid of her own shadow.  Being a role model to her is certainly a constant reminder to push through any doubts.

I learned a lot training for my marathon: start out small, don't get discouraged, carry a lot of beef, lean on your friends, and finish even if it hurts.  Time to use that lesson for something much more difficult - life.


  1. Love this GiGi. Seeing you yesterday was awesome. It is so nice having a conversation where you talk about how HAPPY you are!!! I love that you have found someone who treats you the way Tony does. I don't know the man, but I love him for how he is with you and Pooka. You are a strong, amazing, powerful woman and will accomplish many great things in your life, I know it. I love you!

  2. Thanks, Jayme! I love you, too, and I'm proud of the changes you continually make to create the life you want.
