Inspiration of Me

Zero to Hero Day Nine – Inspire Yourself! Write a post inspired by your About page.

Once upon a long time ago I was a Shakespearean actress. I was a journalist who marched in Viet Nam war protests and rode circus elephants. I was a marketing executive on the east coast, a publishing assistant in New York city and a non-profit leader in the Midwest. I partied with actors whose names you would recognize, made the gossip columns in Washington D.C. and had a bittersweet romance with a Pulitzer Prize winning author.

From there I moved on to a more important existence. Met a man who made me laugh, married him, had his children. Three of them; each a part of my soul and carrying a piece of my heart with them into this world.

We grew older, the kids grew up. Cancer came to visit with us. It stayed a long time. A very long time. When it left it took my husband with it.

Now my son lives on one coast of the United States and my baby girl lives on the other. My middle daughter and I live in the center.

I never made a decision to stop trying. I just did.

Now it’s time to start again.

So what do you think?
