For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

What kind of boot girl are you?

    Are you a stiletto gal 

or more of a biker babe? 

Do you prefer the comfort and warmth of a Mukluk

or an UGG with some razzle dazzle?

Maybe you like them Thigh High

or with a touch of glam?

Maybe you like them elegant and practical 

or sporty and waterproof?

How about short and sassy

or with lots of laces?

Or maybe you just prefer your boots plain old practical. Whatever your taste there is something for everyone.

I love boots. I have at least eight pairs. My favorite boots are tall boots, not thigh high because I'm short, but to the knee. I just added this pair to my collection on Friday so I guess that makes nine! They are water proof boots from Miss Sixty (I'm nothing if not practical!).
