I Wanna Talk About Me

I am coming up on my one year anniversary of me finding my freedom. More like running headfirst into freedom. But nonetheless here we are, almost a year later.

I have taken that time to work on me, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and yes, physically. I needed to find out who I was again, to reconnect with God, reconnect with me. It has been filled with peace, laughter and insightfulness.

I am now doing more things for me, I got my nails done today, visited the brow threading shop and on my birthday had highlights put in my hair.

I have also discovered two items that have revolutionized my eating habits. I have a really hard time with getting enough to eat. I know, huge surprise, but there we are.

First up I bought a Ninja Blender, I’ve been wanting one for a long time. It has made my morning smoothy routine so much easier! I can finally do the whole smoothy at one time. So easy, so smooth and the cleanup is super easy. I’m in love.

The second thing has to do with dinner. A woman I work with, Michelle, was talking about her air fryer. She was coming in every day talking about fajitas, and all kinds of good things. I started asking about the air fryer, how does it work, are the foods really that good. Well, she talked this thing up so much I ordered one.

Well let me tell you she didn’t exaggerate, I am so happy I took her advise and invested in one. Steak, fish and even veggies come out perfectly. It has cut down on cooking time, I can now come home from working out, put my food in the air fryer while I jump in the shower. I get out, get dressed and boom, my food is waiting on me. I am so happy!

I think I am ready to date now, I feel fully healed from the past, I am at peace. Now, if I can only meet Dean Cain.

Who Inspires You?

Ok, so, I have two podcasts that I listen to, one is A Sandwich and Some Lovin’ and the other is Life, Love and Business done by Ray and Amy Cattaneo.

Their podcasts are short, anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes in length. So not a huge commitment in time to listen. One of the episodes was about who inspires you and you never know who you are inspiring.

Now I am not inspiring, but so many people inspire me on a daily basis. My children inspire me, my granddaughter, some of my friends. You’re going to be wondering which ones inspire me now, aren’t you?

I think a lot of people as they get older don’t believe that younger people can inspire them or influence them. I disagree. There are so many people that are younger than I am that just blow me away.

Their passion and commitment to life goals and even relationships is awe inspiring. When I first came to the department I’m in now I sat next to a young man (age wise my children’s age), he had way more knowledge about the job than I had. Can you imagine if I had that mindset of I’m older there’s nothing you can teach me. We ended up becoming friends, even giving each other book suggestions. And sharing music interests, I would have missed out on great information that helped me get up to speed in my job and would have missed out on a positive friendship. Simply due to pride, don’t let age deter you from seeking inspiration and learning opportunities.

I don’t find myself inspirational in the least, I am quite ordinary and geeky. I haven’t really accomplished much, with the exception of my three amazing children. I do believe I did a great job with them. I take full credit for how they turned out.

So, who inspires you? I would love to hear from people. I mean obviously my parents inspired me, my cousins, aunts and uncles, niece and nephew, grand nephews and nieces. But who do you look and and say oh wow that person does whatever. You can leave a comment here or contact me at angie@angieworld.com.
