The Reinvention of Me: Sharma Joyce

 This Guest blogger is one of my oldest friends. I dont remember not knowing her. She is one of the funniest people I have ever known and I LOVE hanging out with her. In addition to that, she is one of my heros. This woman knows how to live, love and work. I am pretty sure there is nothing she cannot do.  She’s modest. She is a cosmetologist, an RN and one of her goals is to run 700 Miles this year. I’ll be lucky to run 700 feet.

“I am the wall flower who secretly wants to be the gregarious extrovert.”



Well here we go. All about me to this point.

My name is Sharma, who has this name anyway. Unique to me. Lord knows I would have never picked it. But alas it is mine. ( until I think of something “I” like). No one can remember my name unless I am in as you guess I try to fly under the radar. Yes very skilled at this.,or so I think.

I am 45 this past November.. WOW how the bleep did that happen.. I was just going along living my life. I honestly will say. I am so lost right now at this age. Wonder what am I supposed to do with the rest of my life? Live I guess!!! But how, who am I, what do I want to do, why haven’t I tried anything new.. I have my days and moments where I am such a tigger, pooh, sometimes eyeore, I most identify with piglet. Kinda afraid to do new things. Self sabotage myself a lot.

The things I know for sure about me. I was great at being a mom. Well so far anyway, I am quiet, very funny when you get to know me, I am the wall flower who secretly wants to be the gregarious extrovert. I am graced by God to get to serve as a nurse. This is my life’s passion when I am happiest, and feel most myself. I know without a doubt my spiritual gift is servitude.

I have been a wife for 24 yrs January 21. This has been the easiest journey up until a couple years ago.. But nonetheless a work in progress.. I have 2 children. By grace i got to be there mother.. So far fairly ordinary kids. Haven’t set the world on fire yet. But they are extremely extrordinary in there own ways.. Watching them make there way in the world is my greatest life’s journey.

My deepest hearts desire.
1) see the world
2) find passion in my life again
3) learn to scuba dive
4) take many pictures of this world
5) run all over the place because I can.
6) this year find some inner peace.
7) serve someone less fortunate than me
8) speak up and make more friends
9) learn what love means to me.
