The Big Journey

View More:
It’s a new season for me and I must say I love fall.  I love the way the wind running through my hair makes me feel and the chill makes me feel alive. Its a time for me to focus on so many things.
My life is no different than any other mother, business women, newly single, or married.  Always filled with choices and decisions.  Will my choices be right?  Will they fulfill my own expectations?   Will the decisions I make be good?   On my sleepless nights instead of counting sheep, I make lists upon lists!!!  By the end of my zillionth list I finally can give my brain a rest and fall asleep. Today I am feeling extremely overwhelmed and flooded with thoughts and those are sometimes the best days for me to write and express what is coming over me.  As all of us have good days and bad days.  I always try to stay positive everyday.   This is my first fall in the past 25 years that my life has become more permanent.  My divorce is truly final; the paperwork is signed.  Avery is in her last year of college and in May her life is also going to become more permanent.  There isn’t a mother out there that doesn’t worry about their children.
So I ask myself where do I start?   How do I begin?  I have worked on myself over the past year and I know that I have come a long way.
My list from last night:
1. Work out always, keep my endorphins flowing
2. Date, make good choices
3. Eat healthy, do not binge (yes I love M&M’S)
4. Ha ha!!! VOTE
5. Stay with people that care about me
6. Find time to read!
7. Help Avery work through her fears
8. Should I join a dating site?
9. Should I start a new business?
10. Take care of Coco, she is getting older
Yes, when I read back the list kind of seems well, I don’t know?  Unimportant?   But is it?   This is only a partial list of my thoughts there are another 20 on another page!
I know I have to stay focused.  Priorities!!!
Love Ramona xox

    Ramona, you are a wonderful, truly inspirational and strong, INDEPENDENT lady. By far maybe the best housewife in the franchise. I’m 18 and list you as one of my inspirations. I really don’t have many role models in real life, so I always look up to other people and you are one! You’re so beautiful and you have a big heart. I think this is a great list, i’ve been so caught up on your blog! I’ll offer you my personal opinion on joining a dating site I would say don’t do that, at least not for a little while longer and maybe just see what happens in real life? But that’s just what I think!

    Hey Ramona!
    Just got to say that I’m loving your blog I wanna make one of my own lol
    Anyways reason why I posted here because I wanted to say you have truly inspired me girl!!!
    I am 24 about to turn 25.. and I will admit I had a love/not so much love to you when I started watching the show! But there was always something that drove me to continue to watch it for you. I loved seeing you through your renewal phase and it just showed how all of us go through different times. I felt terrible when you were going through the divorce but you just came back so alive I was like who is this new Ramona just gets better and better! after reading your book I just have the most respect and admiration for your!! I truly don’t know what to say but I just admire you and so thankful you wrote tht book I feel like I got to know the real you. Like you say you are self made like literally the definition of self made and I loved how you talked about your career your upbringing! After reading your book I just thought if she did it so can I! It made me feel like I can take over the world. So I hope you keep writing here and just sharing your life because you truly inspired me’
    Lots of love!
