Question: If there were one thing you wanted yourself 10 years from today to remember about your life today, what would it be?
That I did the things that I had been putting off and afraid to do. I wanted to have an internet business, make pottery and write a book. I have done those things, am doing those things now. At one point in my life I had given up everything I enjoyed doing to satisfy my husband and to help run several businesses with him as well as raise 3 wonderful kids. I don’t regret any of those things what I do regret is that I gave up me to do it. I thought I had to but I look back and I did it out of bitterness. Choosing to find something to blame as I felt pressured to get more done. It nearly destroyed me. I lost me. I woke up at 45 and didn’t know what I wanted, who I was, or what I wanted. I spent 5 years finding and liking me again. I found that I couldn’t go back to painting landscapes, or doing hand work. (crocheting, knitting, crafts, embroidery) I branched and tried new creative outlets. Now I love photography, hosting a show, and making pottery. In the process I wrote a book to help other couples through difficult times in their relationships. It is called “Is Your Relationship Under Siege?” by Debbie Gerber
