An Update on Rebuilding My Life


Today is the 24th Anniversary of becoming a Kearns.

There are no big plans, just going to the grocery store and maybe a Dairy Queen Blizzard. (Joe loved their Blizzard cakes) It will be a very quiet day.

What Started My Journey

This idea started last month when I looked at what has happened the past few years. My life has gone down hill considerably. Now it is time to turn my life around once and for all. The goal is to have a better life by 6/19/2018 – the 25 anniversary of my joining the Kearns family.

A Word About Anniversaries

June 19th is still the anniversary of when Joe and I got married. It always will be. He is not here to celebrate it and because he is in heaven and we are no longer married. But that is no reason not to honor and remember the day we became one.

The 8 Key Areas

The 8 key areas of my life are Mental Self, Physical Self, Family/Friends, Physical Surroundings, Career, Finances, Hobbies / Fun, and Romance / Significant Other. It is going to take a lot of work over the next 12 months to turn 7 out of the 8 around.

Romance / Significant Other is completely up to God and has been for years. Men my age have never found me attractive (Joe was 4 years younger). It’s always been the older, married men that are attractive to me. So I am not actively seeking another boyfriend or spouse.

The 2 Areas Getting Back On Track 

The areas that started turning around recently are career and finances. I started a virtual call center job in mid-May so the the paychecks are coming in, which means the bills are starting to be paid again. There has been no income since mid-March when unemployment ran out.

Physical Surroundings are also being worked on as I am in the middle of remodeling the spare bedroom into an office. It will be painted Sherwin-Williams “Relish” green with Cool White trim and accents.

In my research I discovered green reduces glare and is the perfect color for call centers as it makes it easier to work long hours. In order to get career and finances back to normal, I will have to work a lot of hours.

So those are the areas of my life currently under major construction.

The area under minor construction is mental self (includes religion). I need to ramp up the rebuilding of this area.

Well that is all for now. Come back next month when I will have more to report and hopefully pictures of my personal call center.

You will always have a piece of my heart Joe. Have fun partying in heaven today.
