"Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do,

What is it that you really want to do? If you could do anything, don't think about time, money, family or any other limitation.

I am thinking about this. I have my chore list and my get healthy list. But, I have been doing some strange things too. I bought myself a box of crayons I DON'T share with my kids. I also bought a pad of paper to color on. Really interesting thing to do. I don't consider myself an artist. I have mostly been coloring shapes. I find it calming.

I also have been writing essays and working to be more consistent in my journal.

My youngest started kindergarten so I have some more time without kids at home. My time requirements have changed. It is fun to think about and explore things that I want to do. I am working to make sure that I spend some time each week doing things I want to do. I bought a book to teach myself calligraphy and a friend taught me a basic quilt block. Here I go.

    I know that freedom is pretty heady. It is great that you are now exploring you. I really treasured that 2 1/2 hours. I had about three years that I had "me" time. After 18 years of a preschooler, that quiet time for me was quite special.

    Crayons. It is a wonderful way to express yourself. You can do anything and you don't have to share. Playing with color and shapes is wonderful. I'm glad you didn't buy a coloring book as well. Making your own expression is much better.

    I'm glad you are exploring some other possibilities.

    Enjoy your "free time" and have fun exploring the person you have become. I believe that we change as much from 20 to 30 as we did from 10 to 20. We change again from 30 to 40 but the changes aren't quite as dramatic. The freedom of "40's" is such a wonderful blessing and gets a little heady.

    Have fun.
