I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to do a little post today about things that make life outside of work fun. It has been a very, very busy day (at work) so I am only just getting to it now! Anyway...there are the sort of universal things that I think we all take pleasure in...our family, friends, music, good food...there are so many things we all share in and they are always worth celebrating. For this post, I thought I'd just toss in the one thing in particular that has made me feel the fun that is my life most recently.
There was a long period in my life where it was hard for me to feel connected to much of anything outside of my immediate sphere. Lately though, I feel myself opening up and feeling like part of the wider world. This is not a very clear thought, and I apologize for that. The result is clear, in any case. I am happier than I have been for many, many years.
A bonus aspect of this feeling of being connected is that it helps me not to worry about the "all alone" aspects of my life. I'm single. My kids are growing up and don't need me in the same ways...I mean, I'm not an empty nester, but things have changed so much since the days when I was herding five kids around with me everywhere. Anyway, sometimes, yes, I feel alone. But because of my connection to the world at large I am able to take a deep breath and realize that I am no more alone than most people. And we are all in it together. Again, I know I'm not explaining myself well. But I hope what I am saying is making some sense.
My life is fun. Note to self: Your life is fun :-)
