    Sometimes if feels as though I'm lost in who I am. Trying to stay above water, trying to see it through- for my children, and for myself.

    I found that I lost myself shortly in the maddness of real life. I was/am so aborbed in making ends meat, and providing the necessities in my household I forgot about myself. The person I was. It's not like I don't know who I am. :10500: It's just that I am not an activite participant in Emerald! More or less I've put myself on standby. Haven't thought about what my hobbies are recently or thought about what I want to do to relax.

    Kinda just limbo in my own world. Do others feel that way? I don't know I guess it seems a bit more confusing the way I'm explaining it and I'm not trying to be. It's just that it seems that I've been so focused on everyone and everything else I lost focus of myself...Forgetting who I am in the mix of it! Like oh yeah that's right I do like to play putt putt! LOL.

    So right now, I'm just finding my way back. Slowly but surely! :)

    And I wish you well, Sister EQ!

    I wish you some balance, some ying and yang to your life, some mental, emotional and social stimulations and relaxations to counter all you do as a mother, sister, friend, daughter...

    I wish you a renewed relationship with you the person, the woman, the being, Emerald Queen. :toast:

    Thank you all for your wonderful support and encouragments! Yeah, sorry Jamesfrmphilly, putt putt golf...must have forgotten about putting golf in the end! :)

    Last night was wonderful, and today my family is going out for a round of bowling! When money is tight (when isn't it?) lol we'll do games like Monopoly, or something like PS3 or other fun games we use to do when I was a kid. It's nice to find that even balance! Still on my way but one step at a time.
