35 Years~ 35 Pieces of Me

Today is my 35th birthday and the last year has been a whirlwind for me. Such is life. I have recreated my life and I have found my purpose on this Earth. Inside of that, I have reevaluated my presence here on my blog as well as in the "cyber world." How is my presence serving my purpose? I have looked at what has been missing in who I portray myself to be for all of you, and what I have seen is that because of a lack of time, my presence has become less personal. And I feel that takes away from what I'm really committed to giving. I never intend to seem perfect, but I now know that I'm perfect just the way I am. So, today I put this list together with the intention of letting you know who I am.

Enjoy~ if you wish... :)
