Life ??'s

I have so many questions about life.  I question humanity.  Are we becoming a desensitized?  The reason I ask these questions are simply because of my own reactions to human suffering.  The problem is that I am no longer appalled, shocked or suprised by human suffering.  Examples of this have manifested in my reactions to the recent tragedies in Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, or even the tragedy that has become Iraq.  What do I do to change the world?  The answer may be that I simply begin with me!  I have to be the change I want to see in others!  In other words, the world is simply what you make it!  I choose here and now to make it better!  Won't you join me!


Well as I stated in my earlier post I am adding layers!  I am trying to become more active in theater again, I don't know if this means becoming involved as a participant or an observer.   Only the future can tell, what I do know is have tickets to see Sweet Charity on June 7.  I have always loved plays and musicals, I can remember as a kid watching, Oklahoma, The Music Man, and the Wizard of Oz.  I was just enthralled!!  Oh well, this years theater season in Charlotte looks very promising!  

This journal is another important layer as well, it is a place for me to be creative and expressive.  I plan to discuss my thoughts and views on life. This will be my creative outlet and venue.  Now on to my new mantra or credo if you will, 
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people the right to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

A new beginning

Hey there to those who may be interested.  This is what I will call my new beginning.  I am you see, in a bit of a metamorphosis.  On January 25, 2007 I had gastric bypass surgery, the interesting thing about the surgery is not the obvious changes that have occured, but the less than obvious changes.  For example, I have a new zest for life!  I find myself rejoining the land of the living again!  I am becoming much more feminine again, I am actually interested in looking pretty!  On a less vain note, I also am reinvigorated with my job, I want to make a difference again!  I am a Drug Free Communities Coordinator, and I am no longer burnt out!  I guess basically what all this means is that although I am shedding pounds, I am still adding layers!  Just finally the right kind of layers!
