If I Could........

If you could change one thing about you what would it be?

I would change my weight. This is hard. Tomorrow I am going to start back working out again. I have not walked my regular 2 miles since October 19. My goal is now to be healthy. Too many folks are dying too young. I feel sluggish.


If you could change your occupation what would you do?

I would be a talk show hostess. Five years ago I was offered a show on a cable station. I went in and hosted a show and they had a huge number of call-ins. People were excited. I turned down the show one week later. I was self conscious about my weight. I wasn't fat and I didn't suffer from low self-esteem. I suffer from wanting to always be the best. So I am going to use the time I have to be the best I can be and to do the things I enjoy the most.

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be my self-esteem. I have to admit it rules how I make decisions.

If I could change one thing about me ... I would get a breast lift. I won't do it because it involves implants and I'm not trying to get bigger ... just perkier.

If I could change my occupation ... full time writer.

Do you regret turning down the talk show?

Shai, I believe that self esteem plays a bigger part in our decision making process than most of us will ever admit. I do believe it had much to do with me not following through with the show.

African girl: The first show I taped was amazing...but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

man, i know how you feel!

i would change my weight thing too. i'm tired of battling with it!

if i could change my occupation, i'd be a full-time writer and stay-at-home mom. that way i could raise kids AND raise consciousness all at the same time! i'm kinda lazy like that... :)

I have a friend who had a breast lift and she didn't have to do anything like implants, they just pulled them up tighted. She looks great.

As far as the talk show, sometimes I do regret it because it could have parlayed into something bigger. I am a talker and I have always visualized myself in front of an audience, but I always thought it would be law. Twenty years ago my husband kept asking me why I didn't go into reporting or something because he thought I had a great speaking voice, but no one ever told me that I could do that when in high school or college. So it was never even in my thinking.

Now I just give motivational talks to various audiences.

That weight issue hangs around on most people. Now with so many folks dying of heart attacks it is a necessity not to carry more than 10 pounds over your best weight.

Writing full time would be great too.

Okay, I am now writing full time and y'all are scaring me.

To be honest, I wouldn't change anything, not because I don't want to change something, but I just need to see if I can get thru the challenges handed to me now. For me to change would make me feel like I'm giving up on me.
