Reality to Rags to Riches – Story and Life of an Ex-NFL Wife
From spectator to motivator, I got off the bench and got in the game of life. Living this "football life" has afforded me ex-traordinary opportunities, exposure to life’s options and blessings untold. That life filled my personal "playbook" with the wisdom to call an audible, pass, run or, go for the two-point conversion as I lived each day. Life has taken me on a journey which took three major turns, each leading to a road of exploration and discovery; each crafting me into the person who would become skillful at using life’s compass in navigating new directions and negotiating what’s best for me:
REALITY is a place that forced me to face life early on "as is." The seeds planted during that period are directly responsible for my growth. All of my core values were established. No matter how far I strayed, the experiences throughout that time, prepared me for Rags and Riches.
RAGS taught me humility, agility and possibility. I learned to be grateful when I am served, but more importantly, to be willing to serve others. The events during this period instilled fearless faith that grounded me and prepared me for true Riches.
RICHES is not about what, it’s about who. For me that means family, friends and moments. They are true riches which are irreplaceable. If I can replace it, it is not a true treasure.
