I am sorry. I know Idisappeared for a few weeks. I know I tend to do that.
This time, it was for reflecting.
There were a few weeks when I stopped doing everything and started thinking instead. Doing and Thinking are both important, but often we spend our lives simply Doing and never stop to actually Think.
I did some thinking, and here's what I came up with:
It's not too late, after all, to do the things I want to do.
It's okay to want two very contradictory things.
You can't have everything you want is true, but it doesn't mean you can't have anything you want.
I am less the river I was, and more a mountain. I still wonder, how'd that happen?
I enjoy cooking. Seriously, I did not know that.
We are paying too much money for too many channels (Yes, we're joining all the rest of the sane folk who are downgrading or canceling their cable!)
I have something special with my little boys, forged because I've stayed home with them for five years. I love that. Love that I COULD do that.
It will take me a long time to find a job in this economy, with my changing career fields. And that's okay.
And most of all....
I think that this crappy economy has taught a lot of us a good many things on need vs. want.
