For some time now, I have managed to compartmentalize my life. I have my work life, my gym life, my personal life and my writer life. I’ve been careful to not let one facet interfere with the other. At the urging of a dear friend I consolidated all facets of my life this week through Facebook. So, for those of you who didn’t know…
- I’m a Respiratory Therapist in one of the busiest emergency / trauma centers in the United States. I work with a lot of amazing and wonderful people.
- I’m a mother with two grown boys, ages twenty-three and twenty. I think they’re special.
- I’ve trained in martial arts for over ten years.
- I write a blog.
- And to my old friends from Mississippi and Louisiana – Yes, I’m still 112 lbs, 5 ft tall (or short), brown eyes, reddish-brown hair (with a few grey hairs now), and I don’t think I’ve changed too much (until I look at a picture).
I spend a great deal of time with a lot of people and very few of them actually know much about me. Until today. I connected my blog with Facebook. So, if you read my blog, you can find me as Jodi Lynn Baughman on Facebook. And if you’re on Facebook, you can find out more about me by reading my blog. A link to my blog should post every day at 5:00 PM, Houston time.
BTW, I write mostly about martial arts and the emotional side of training. However, thoughts on other things do creep in from time to time. I try to respect other people’s privacy. There is a lot of out pouring of frustration. Then there is my odd sense of humor here and here. I also try to inspire people and reassure them, that things are going to be OK.
So there, the cats out of the bag. I’m a fighter and I write about it!
