A powerful quote from the great and powerful Oprah:

“As you become more clear about who you really are, you’ll be better able to decide what is best for you – the first time around.”

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately……Looking back at the me I was 10 years ago, it’s almost hard to accept that I’m the same person I was then. What a difference circumstance makes! I’m not saying that I regret being married, and I would never, ever regret the beautiful children I’ve been blessed with. BUT…..if I knew then what I know now, would I have traveled the same path?

In other news: waiting for the 500 packages of beef jerky to arrive so I can get a congratulatory basket shipped off to the great Jim Thome. I love orders like this one–so much fun to do!! Working on finishing up holiday designs….ok, that’s wishful thinking because I’m actually just starting them. But hey–I do what I can 😉 And I actually got bold and make a couple of phone calls to propose new business.

My weight loss has stalled a bit, I think mostly because I haven’t been able to get out and walk every night like I had been doing religiously for a month. I’m at 16 pounds, which is better than I’ve done in a LONG time. So much further to go, though, and I don’t want to lose momentum!!
