I Measure My Runs in Parsecs Now...

Rosie Riveter
This past year and a half has been an amazing journey for me!  I started blogging for fun and to share
my experiences with my friends and my virtual family!  We've had a lot of fun this past year, and many races behind us.  It was obvious to me that we all have a passion to grow and learn together, and that's why over the last few months I've been introspective.

My blog, Glisten While You Run, was a tribute to all the princesses out there:  to be more exact, we don't sweat,  we glisten.  It really goes with how my Mother trained me as her young "padawan".

I was sent to Charm School, took many hours of classical piano lessons, suffered through ballet, and was drilled on etiquette questions on the weekends.  But as when Obi Wan passed his lightsaber on and became Luke's inspiration of what it meant to be a Jedi,  this was also true with my Mother's passing.  My Mother had given me all the knowledge, and it was time for me to become a Jedi.  Mom's transition to God's Jedi Council was dose of reality that changed me and my path in life.

There is no reason to partake in a journey, if you don't learn something along the way.  I came to the realization that I'm not the Princess I started out to be.  I  don't glisten anymore: I sweat!  I no longer resembled someone trying to be Cinderella or Snow White, but a Princess made up of Mary Ellen and Princess Leia:  one that kick's butt; needs no one to rescue her; is fit, intelligent and powerful.

So, as my blog is the window to my life and my world, its only logical that I become the Kessel Runner - as I left the cocoon to become the bad ass butterfly.

I will no longer measure my runs in miles....  but in parsecs!
