Many things change

It has been a long time since I have had the time to use this blog. Many things have changes in my life the most important being that my Mom lost her battle with liver disease on May 22, 2012. It has been extremely hard on me coming to grips with losing her. I have good days when I remember the laughs and smiles we shared. But then the "other" days come when I just want to hear her voice. Those are the days filled with tears.

During the course of her illness there were days when I did was complain how she was driving me nuts, but I am grateful for the time she and I spent together.  We did have a lot of great times. She was a very special woman that was liked and loved wherever she went. Many miss her. Me most of all. 

I have closed my business. I find that I no longer want to do this line of work anymore. I have been in the medical billing business for over 20 years now. I can do it with my eyes closed. But it no longer provides a challenge for me. The changes within the government make it almost impossible for the healthcare industry to continue as it has in the past. 

Since my mother's passing, I have found myself turning to food for comfort. Not a good idea. I have put on over 20lbs in two months!  I am uncomfortable in my own skin with this added weight. I have however started to do something about it. The first thing being cutting out all the diet coke and drinking more water. I don't know if I am the only one that feels this way but I don't like to drink plain water! So it has been quite a chore but I am making a concentrated effort to add a bottle a day.  And I have started taking ACE (a natural Appetite Control & Energy Supplement)

I don't know where my life is headed at this moment but it is changing. My new journey has begun.....

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you have imagined.
