I got turned around there for awhile and stopped doing the things that I used to do...the things that kept me healthy. You know how it is. Life happens and it can throw some real ugly challenges your way. I went through some pretty tough times, an ugly, long and drawn-out divorce, the death of a child, to mention the worst. I really lost control of a part of my life, gained a lot of weight and began having a variety of health issues.

In the past, I was a fighter. I didn't give up. If someone told me I couldn't, I'd say "Watch me!" When I did all I could until I couldn't do any more, I'd keep on pushing and do more anyway. That was then, before I lost my way. I didn't fall into feeling sorry for myself or anything like that. I was just knocked down so hard that I couldn't seem to get up again. I lost a part of myself back there somewhere.

I always had a hopeful spirit and I don't think I ever lost that, but somehow I think there was a part of me that was just numb, not able to feel. I have always felt that in whatever happens there is a lesson to be learned, a good to come out of it...even with the bad things...especially with the bad. Well, I still believe that and I can see positive aspects of some of my own sorrows. There were lessons and good did come.

Now, after many years, I'm ready to be whole again. I want to feel strong and whole and healthy again. I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready. So, if anybody tells me that I won't be able to make it, I'll just say "Watch me!"
