Time to make the Donuts...

Dose anyone remember that Commercial?

I love the FB post on this day .......I love looking back and moving forward

These were my thoughts 3 years ago.

1-10yr marriage, 1-10yr partnership, finally woke up to my reality of My grind. Home,work, church,education sleep When I became aware and awake I realized who I became. At 38 a former shadow of who I started out as for what? Security and safety? Hmmm, realizing my blessings and assesing my goals personel and professional. I set out to create that life I wanted. From dancing in the rain at the beach and laughing to going to musical concerts and plays and concert, going on real vacations, dancing to HOUSE. Finding my joy by myself realizing I gave my power away. Letting my yes be my yes and my no be my no. Finding my balance and who I am in my 40's and loving myself enough to know that I am not my circumstance. Sorry for the long post but I can so relate. When I say that now I have balance and joy it is so the truth. Peace and blessings love and light.
Picture #2 was how conservative I used to dress #3 is the transformation of self. And #1 is the 1st concert I ever went to as an adult with Kindred the Family Soul.
Never forget your dreams.....

    one of the joys of growing older is the confidence and resilience that you find in yourself.

    You inspire me, Ledonna. So. Bloody. Much.

    I love your exuberance, your flare for life and the way you love & celebrate YOURSELF everyday. Keep on rockin'

    I absolutely LOVED that commercial. Not because I like donuts, I do NOT, but because of what it means. I say it a lot even now when it's time to get the old butt out of bed and get moving, or face some reality that's a bit tough, or get moving on some boring task that has to be done. 

    So I totally get you Ladonna!

    Your story is so incredibly inspiring. Creating the life you want is incredibly hard work and you deserve huge kudos for it. And from what you've said I'm guessing you are giving a whole lot more to others now than you did before, so everyone benefits!

    You must be the light in many lives, spreading your peace, faith and joy. You are a blessing and inspiration to young and old and everything in between.

    Joy you make me laugh. I was not always so. I was very ummmm very much mean and grumpy. Like Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street. I still am from time to time. It is a constant check in with self to be better than I was. I am far from perfect. I always slip up but like everyone one else I just try to be.

    Greetings Benard and thank you I try to be transparent in what I say and how I live my life.  That is the only way I know how to be.  I think you already know that I love a button down top.  Thank you very much.
