Hello, It’s Me.

For the first time in 5 years, I feel like myself.

It happened this week.

I looked in the mirror and saw the person I was 5 years ago… before the storm.  THIS IS SOME WEIRD ASS SHIT!  It’s hard to explain, it’s like all of the stress and sadness was gone from my face and I saw ME!  I even said to myself, “DAMN,I FEEL LIKE ME!”

Been feeling like the “ole Ali” this entire week!

It’s a wonderful feeling…it’s like, I can DREAM again.

I can have REAL  goals again.

I WANT to do things again….WOW!

See, I was always a planner…if you asked me where I saw myself in 5 years, I’d be able to tell you that…and more.

Then, “you know what” passed through and I was a changed person.


We have a lot of catching up to do with one another…do I sound like Sybil?LOL

You should never go through life, not feeling like yourself…it’s awful.

  1. Wow! that was beautiful, intimate – you didn’t go into great detail and yet I feel like I understood what you went thru. Thanks for sharing your self like that. Glad Cliff recommended your blog. I’ll be returning to check you out

    1. Thanks for stopping by Red and be sure to hang around…I love my NOLA bloggers! I’ve been taking it all very slowly but so far, good…still feeling like me. I want everyone to feel like themselves again.

  2. It’s a great feeling to be whole again, isn’t it? It’s like a whole series of complicate surgeries are finally over and worked, even though you didn’t believe that until the last one was done.

  3. Awwww Citizen K.. I LOVE THIS SONG…and I remember The Midnight Special. Sending that video was like sending me a big bouquet of flowers wrapped up in a rainbow!
    Thank you!

      1. Ok…I just showed the video to NavySeal and now he’s doing impressions of Wolfman Jack throughout the house…*sigh*

    1. Easterndream: Thanks for stopping by and you’re right, many of us are just waking up 5 years after the storm.
      My kids struggled with it all for a while and my daughter is still a little paranoid around this time of year. I think she still has more work to be done before she’s her 100% normal self.
