Refeathering.com is the diary of Paula I. Pasterski, a 60 year old woman who has had an awakening in 2016, jarring her into facing the reality of actually setting then going about accomplishing goals designed to give her the life she has only dreamed about in the past.
It has been said that when life gets harder than it is to change……you’ll change. Paula is not a stranger to life altering directional changes. She has dug herself out of impossible situations, recovered from addictions, lost over 100 pounds, established and grew a professional career after the age of 49 and managed to sustain a marriage for 38 years.
A number of factors led her to make this next leap….perhaps the biggest of all….one that is intended to change her life on many levels. The goals are:
- Establish a new relationship with God through obedience to Jesus Christ.
- Leave the corporate world for a home business venture.
- Grow a meaningful relationship with my new grand daughter.
- Jump off the hamster wheel and take life in full measure
- Lose the remaining weight I started to lose in 2010 (30 pounds of which I put back on)
- Establish a family and friends vacation compound in which my extended family can grown close again and in which existing and new friendships can blossom.
Refeathering.com was founded by Paula Pasterski who is a strong advocate for personal empowerment. She has worked in bookkeeping and office management for over 25 years. In the past 12 years she has managed the busy office of a small manufacturer of capital equipment for some of the largest energy producers in the world. Her experience includes development of company processes and procedures, finances, supervision of administrative staff and human resources.
She resides with her husband and pet cockatiel in Elgin, Illinois and is passionate about Jesus, gardening, music, fine fragrances, home fashion, and individual creativity.
There are a million “mommy blogs” which inspire stay at home mom’s to earn a living while staying home with their children. This is one of the great benefits of the technology we have today. But what about the mommy’s mommies? Tired of corporate life or perhaps banished from corporate life by employers who are looking only to hire the young and tech savvy at a fraction of the living wage you used to earn.
On this site I plan to share how I accomplish my goal of establishing an at home business designed to give me the freedom I need to pursue those activities that interest me now, AND I plan to share those interests….I plan to use what I’ve learned during my years in business and what I learn about using the current technology to start and integrate a small business with a balanced life. I hope to grow a community of ideas, support and inspiration to help others transform just as I hope the process transforms me.
Let’s grow new feathers…….then use them to fly.
PS, I think I’d like my feathers to be a bright turquoise with a little soft coral fringe around the edges.
