I am always being told that I am “an inspiration”. What makes one an inspiration? Well, the definition of “inspire” is “ to make someone want to do something, to give someone an idea about what to do or create and to cause someone to have a feeling or emotion. My purpose for writing HAVE FUN WITH JANE is to inspire women like me to get up and do something….preferably something fun. Dr. Seuss, in the beloved, Cat in the Hat, wrote this famous line:
It’s fun to have fun but you have to know how.Dr. Seuss
I am a 50-something year old woman, 2- time breast cancer survivor, wife and mother of a millennial. Life has had its ups and downs, but through it all I have had the support of my friends and family which I am forever grateful for. As I have experienced the fragilities of life, I have also developed this love of having FUN and enjoying the little things in life. I like to think of myself as my own Cat in the Hat (without the rhyming abilities)!
Fun can manifest in many forms. For me it ranges from anything from being crafty to packing a suitcase in preparation for a weekend away. You might be wondering why I chose a see-saw for my logo. Well, when I was a little girl I was petrified of this playground apparatus. It definitely was not fun for little Janie. I haven’t been on a see-saw in ages, but it’s my reminder that it’s ok to try things that might be out of your comfort zone. You might find it FUN!
