I am married and live in the countryside with my twin boys, and my husband, George. he is big on the term, "some day." I tell him George you got to live a little each day! For that " some day" may be sooner than we think, and have a bigger regret, in store for us! I also have a son in Thessaloniki, Greece. He is shown here at his "big day," his wedding in the picture, with his wonderful-beautiful wife Zoe, who happens to be fluent in English as well! I had my daughter living in Illinois, but who is back now, and live here in town in Missouri! The whole family, especially dad, pitched in and remodeled her home. My family is everything to me. Letting go can be the hardest thing, and learning to talk and open your heart to your kids is the hardest challenge for me. I want to inspire, and be inspired by all people in this journey called life. And as my good friend put it, it is a healing process, what has been done to us with all the abuse and neglect, and what we do to ourselves! Baby steps will get us there, even as slow as a turtle, change can happen! Good things can happen when you want it bad enough to happen! Finally, I want to be remembered in this life with my story, and anyway that it can make a difference, or learning in someone's life. I hope to keep working on my story and with God's help I can get it published! Also, to find the strength, and the purpose in living each, and every day of my life to it's fullest, and not let OCD cheat me anymore, and in anyway possible way in my life, with whatever is left!

My Goals:
My goal is to become more active in life. I don't want my whole life to pass me by without me participating in it!

And active can be in different ways. Not to be afraid of trying. Success without failure is almost impossible!

My other goal would be to be a success writer and to publish my books!

Finally, to see my kids happy, healthy, and successful in this life!

My Program:
I am trying to get out of my diet all the stuff that I really don't need the excessive processed food. The refined sugar and striped flours. The things we can and can't pronounce, corn solids, fructose corn syrup, ecetra.

For me it is a constant educating and learning my body and still being confused. I think a lot of people try to separate the body, mind, and spirit, when we should try to treat them all together like a unit.

Personal Information:
I am a very proud person and of my background which is my Greek heritage. I will not put my head down to accommodate someone,like it is wrong what I am doing, or how I think. I do not like nor put up with rudeness, or rude and offensive people, in any shape, form, or manner. My mind and philosophy reflect my Greek raising mostly, but both worlds, that I am happy and proud to be part of. I have been raised to have strong moral family values. I have a stronger spirit, and certainly stronger than I give myself credit for. I have been told we always learn in life till the end. So I always try to have my mind open, you never know when and how you can learn in this life!

Other Information:
I love to do creative writing, and my downfall is I don't believe enough in myself, that I can do it. That would be a wasted mind in life if I really allow myself to do that. I do have my own poems, and stories, as well as recipes but they are not copyrighted yet, and I am hoping to be able to put them into print "one day," so I cannot share at this point.

    I am back after a very long time gone. Visited with a friend yesterday. I seem to think I can do this alone, and usually I can. For some reason we all need to have the right people around us. No one likes to be all alone. I am back tracking, and this time I am making it the very best that it can be. I need to see were I am stumbling, what I can change, therefore I will know where I need to go. I need to know where I need to go, hope all is well with you, as well. emoticon

    Life is just a journey, and we are all here to have a human experience! I had my spiritual awakening, slowly starting from Jan. 2011. Now, just waiting for everyone else to catch up with me. Time, as we are counting it, is going by way too quickly; but then again, there is no such thing as time. And, what really happens by accident, anyways? Glad to be back, and will do the best that I can do! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am trying to be back, as much as I can. I have not been on here for a very-very long while. I am not trying to avoid anyone. I just seem to be more of a loner, and keep much to myself. Best wishes to all. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am so happy everybody for my new book that is out! I have been feeling depressed trying topick myself back up, and start caring more about me! Depression, Anxiety, and OCD tend to cheat us out of our lives like a big thief! It is a constant struggle, of pulling inwards, falling, and trying to get back on up! My daughter just gave birth, she had a very rough time, but is fine, so is the baby! James-Alexander! I will push to get on here more and try to move more, and record what I do, at least the walking part! Thank you for all you guy's support, always, Love Kathy! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
