The starting point of all achievement is desire. Napoleon Hill
own a Purple Jacket, and for quite some time now, the purple jacket has been about the only thing in my life which as stayed in the closet!
When I purchased The Purple Jacket in 2005, I had just lost 85 lbs over a two-year period. Purchasing that jacket was out of character for me, not only was it an expensive, spur of the moment purchase, there was nothing in my wardrobe which even came close to looking like this jacket. Wearing that jacket as a life changing experience: I just loved wearing that purple jacket on special occasions!
Before Richard made his life transition in March, he made me promise him that I would take better care of myself. I am really trying to take better care of myself, however some days are better than others. Like many of us do, I deal with stress by eating. Sure, I’ve tried a diet here a diet there. I’ve been on the bike and on the walking path, each time I tried, that little voice in the back of my head seem to take control.
As I create a new path in life, I wonder if it is not time to re-brand the blog? Re-branding the blog does not mean that I will give up on wearing the Purple Jacket, but in order to wear that jacket again, I wonder if it is not time to create some ‘Healing Ties’ in order to do so?
So as my faithful readers to the Purple Jacket,and listeners to my new radio show, ‘Healing Ties’ if you could answer some quick questions in our poll about re-branding ‘The Purple Jacket’ to ‘Healing Ties’ I would be most appreciative.
