This Chapter in My Life and Apple Pean-ola

by Joanne on October 24, 2011

On the radio the other day, the interviewer asked the guest “If you named your life right now as a chapter in a book, what would that chapter be called?” I looked at Ted as we drove along and said “Amazing”. He said “excuse me?”  I said, “I’d name the chapter of my life right now “Amazing”.

A wonderful husband.  A loyal dog and running partner.  My 2nd marathon, The 115th Boston Marathon in 3:47 (who could have imagined?!?)

AND… one of the most important, the success of my company.

What a year!  What a life! Talk about being blessed.  Because my parents instilled in me the fortitude to act on my dreams and my goals without fear of failure, I’m able to move forward and reach for the stars.  Star

If you were to name your life right now as a chapter in a book, what would you name it?

To whom would you attribute that chapter ?

      What a super post – so glad to hear things are going “Amazing”-ly well for you! That’s terrific. There’s such a tendency to fixate on negative things, or things we want to change or improve upon that it’s great to see the positive highlighted!
