I am an extremist, a perfectionist, and an overachiever.
This doesn’t mean I’m perfect, it means I nearly kill myself, (and those around me), aiming for perfect, trying to always do it right, do it now, and do my best.
What I’m not? I’m not invincible.
I think Oprah, (or a Greater Power), came to me in a moment of downtime.
Downtime? Read as: <must have caught me during my sleep>
Life, (or Oprah), is always bringing us lessons to learn.
It would be so much more beneficial if we could listen and learn the first time.
Many of us need the same lesson over and over. Again.
What have I learned lately?
I’ve learned that if we don’t know enough to slow down, something will come into our lives to do it for us.
We allow priorities to get shuffled around and life becomes unbalanced.
Life= Learning to balance the scales over and over. Again.
Learn the lesson before that life is over and there are no more chances to get it right.

They list relationships… daughter, wife, mother.”
