If you are a movie buff (like I am) you probably saw the movie “Baby Boom.” Diane Keaton is fired from a high-paying job because she acquired a “nanny” job accidently. She moves to New England and starts her own business that becomes so successful her old company wants to take it over. She almost succumbs to their outrageous offers of “big” money and asks them to let her think it over. While she is contemplating this decision she says to herself, “I’m back! I’m back!” meaning that she is seriously considering returning to the rat race. But after a minute of soul-searching she decided to remain her own boss.
After a few months of contemplation I decided to go back to the life I had before December 12, 2012. It was hard for a few months because I had to wonder if I really wanted that life back. I didn’t want to do the most ordinary things like writing, reading, knitting, etc. Suddenly, it came to me. Those were the things that were a part of me. Yes, the desire had left me for a while but my normal self soon reappeared.
So, I’m back. To everyone who prayed, sent cards, flowers and other gifts, this is the only way I can thank you since I can’t do it personally. It all meant so much to me. No one knows why things happen, but there’s no sense sitting around wondering. Life goes on. One can only do the best they can. I hope I live up to my readers’ expectations once again.
Thought for the day: I’ve come a long way from what I used to be, and I won’t give up on becoming what I know I can be. Anonymous
