The Pieces Of My Life...

These past few weeks have been perhaps the toughest mentally and emotionally that I have had to deal with in a very long time, since my accident in 2006. Looking back over the past year I see how I have honestly been trying so hard to get me and my life back … I realize now that is where I’ve been going wrong. You see "I’m no longer that person nor is my life that life".


My Goal is that by October 28th, 2011- even if I don't have all the pieces of my life in place I will have Created A New Me! Saying this out loud and writing it makes it real, it also means that I now have to let go of the me and life I knew and lived; to be able to embrace the NEW!!!

Have you found yourself at a cross-road, what was your first step to rebuilding your life?

Getting settled in for the show...

The fashionable attendees provided as much
fashion-candy for the eyes as the show itself.

This one is for all the Alexander McQueen fans...

This purple Birkin certainly caught my eye...

I'm definitely going to try on this jacket!!!

Attitude IV (for) Life...

Sometimes we fall off our high heeled lives, and as the saying goes

"Change your shoes
                         Change your life"

It's important to remember~ no matter the shoes we are wearing we remain the Director of our own Life!

We may have not written the script for our life,
but it is up to us how we live it!

During my blog posting intermission, I have tried to visit and will continue to pop in for visits to your blogs as time permits. Thank you to everyone who has left encouraging comments, sent inspirational notes and emails. Know that I'm working very hard to get some focus and balance, so that I can give back through my writing!!
Stay tuned ....

Time Flies ~ On Angel's Wings

I can't believe its been a year since my little trembling fingers started clicking on the keyboard in hopes of trying to release the frustration filled days that had become my life and to help with rebuilding my writing and expression skills.

When I first started blogging March 1, 2010 ~ I had no idea/belief that a year later I would still be clicking away on my keyboard. Nor had I imagined the impact that blogging would have on me. Looking back over this past year, I can say without a doubt that blogging saved me (there were some very dark times that I did not share, perhaps one day).

I may not have realized the power of BlogLand but my Angels sure did ~ they always seemed to connect me with just the right BlogFriend who was writing about something that I needed to read. Or sometimes I found myself sharing more about me than I had expected ~ and then I would get a comment or email from someone saying how much that post had made a positive difference to them.

This past year BlogLand has reached and touched me, when psychologists failed; given me encouragement and support, when family and friends could not; forced me to look at the half full glass, when all I could see was emptiness; but most of all it has inspired me to give back, stay postive, stick with something and the desire to move forward.

Blogging is something that I would not have entered into pre-accident ~ after all I was busy with my High Heeled Life. But, Blogging is certainly part of my post-accident life and I hope that with help from my Angels I will inspire others to keep going no matter what detours their lives may take.

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others" 1 Peter 4:10

P.S. I would like to thank Mr. G. for being the one to remember that I started blogging a year ago! and for encouraging me to write when I can't even get my butt out of bed (he literally brings my lap top upstairs,sets it up on the bed and keeps checking until I start clicking on the key board.)

clear the cobwebs, polish things up
