Time is something that has limits. We are only here on earth for a period of time and then we are gone. There is no way to avoid death - it will happen. Once you accept this fact your world will open up. It will open up if you don't dwell on the negative aspects and focus on the positive.
Once your children have left to make their own lives and we find ourselves living in an empty and quiet nest, we suddenly also find ourselves with the freedom to do whatever we want.
No one is there making demands our time and all those dreams we once had when young can become reality.
Embrace this time in your life. Use it to your advantage. You can do so much with this new found freedom.
- Finish that pile of books you intended to read, but never had the time.
- Join a club and participate (Hiking, Games, Writing, Cooking, Church group, etc.)
- Finish all those UFOs (Unfinished Objects) like a quilt, redecorating the empty bedrooms (maybe turn one into your personal space), plant that garden (food or flowers), etc.
You can do anything you want!
Including sleep late,
stay up late,
watch the movies you want to watch,
listen to the music you want to listen to.......
it's your life.......
