If you could be or do anything in this world what would you choose?
Are you happy with yourself and your achievements?
If I could change anything it would be my weight. I would love to lose some of that because it is healthier to be in good shape. Too many folks are dying too young and I want to be the best I could be health wise. I've seen too many folks die this year from heart attacks. Some as young as 38 years old, they were a little overweight but no other real problems per their families. Losing weight has always been difficult for me because I am an emotionally eater. I go long periods without eating and then when I get stressed the damage is done. Diets haven't worked for me. I am trying to find something that will work that will suit me.
If I could change my occupation; I wouldn't. I would still be doing what I am doing and that is working in the social service arena. This is an occupation where you never get bored. There are so many positions you can work in with children, teens, families and the elderly. It is perfect for me. I used to want to sing professionally and sometimes I still do but I know that time has passed and I'm okay with that. I wouldn't want to do all that touring and traveling.
Things I really enjoy doing are reading and writing. I don't even remember an age where this wasn't important to me. I have been reading books for enjoyment since I was six years old.
A person who I miss dearly is a previous boss I had. She was only 38 years old. She died of a blood clot in the brain three years ago. I miss her dearly. She was very talented, smart, and served as the executive director of three major organizations before the age of 35. She was well loved and had the most pleasing personality..RIP..Mary Hayes. You are Missed....
