I think we all have been doing a lot of reflecting in the past few months. I left radio in 2011 and have been battling various health issues ever since. Radio was fun…..key word there is “WAS.” I am not bitter. I played the cards I was dealt but with hindsight being 20/20 I made a lot of bad decisions.
I am a creative person by nature. I love to speak and write. I don’t take orders very well….I prefer to give them. I had this luxury in radio and as long as I was left alone by management I was happy and successful. Radio forced me to move around a lot. I am now back in Cleveland because of family and good health care. My eighty year old mother lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, I am not married and don’t have any pets or children. My quest is to move mom here.
If I had to do it all over again I would have stayed here in Northeast Ohio. This is home. I ran away from all my problems when I was eighteen and now I’m back to make the best of the time I have left. I should have paid more attention in high school. I have been making up for lost time by watching a lot of documentaries and reading…..it’s not the same. I had the chance…..I blew it.
I would have made a great attorney. I’m a perfectionist and a workaholic. I like to argue when I am confident of my beliefs…..be forewarned….I am very confident. Life is short and you have only one chance. When my time on Earth is done I hope I have made up enough of my “wasted time” to go to the next level……after all….isn’t that truly our main purpose in this world? Thanks for reading.
