How SHELLYE Got Her Groove Back (Tee Hee Hee!)

Well, it's one week post birthday. The book writing is going great. Still trying to come up with some good questions to give the ladies so that it is a good and consistent reflection of their experiences and, at the same time, an encouragement to the women the book is for. Whew!!

I really miss writing. But you know what else I really miss? Playing the piano. Everytime i hear someone tickling the ivories, I melt! I'm getting rid of some furniture, hopefully this weekend, and I have a spot that's perfect for a piano. I'm praying that someone will just give me one or at least at a decent price. I've had electronic keyboards in the house for the kids but having a REAL piano would be excellent. I really haven't had the opportunity to teach the kids anything and I want to do that.

So, the title. How did I get my groove back? I started thinking about who I've been over the years. I was a pretty tough cookie. But i got knocked down with low self-esteem and becoming too submissive to folks that didn't deserve that from me. I'm slowing getting back to my old self... and then some. From the experiences I've had throughout the years, I am learning to say NO more often and also when to ask for help. I know I can't do it all by myself! God has great things for me to do but I need to be able to delegate some of those things and really oversee and give direction.

I remember my aunt and I talked a long time ago about something she wanted to do. I won't tell her secret but it was a great idea. And now that I think about it... I need to have a sit down with her. My grandmother says she and I are a lot alike and I can finally see it now... lol. She is something else.

Anyhoo, I need to call grams now. I was just having a moment and needed to write! I like this blog stuff. I'm pretty transparent so I don't care who reads this stuff! I'm having fun!

Ciao for now!
