Carole posted a little story yesterday about making a foray into something new and exciting (and successful!). I'm sure many of you have read it.
Vicki has recently gone for the high diving board, too, with her photography business and attending night school.
Not long ago, I ran into someone I've known for 20 or so years, and explained to her what it is that I'm doing now -- "going to med school" vicariously. She looked at me and said, with much emotion, "But....we're at the age when we want to start slowing down!"
Uh-uhhhhh. Apparently not me.
Then I ran into a former colleague from the court reporting world. She said, "I heard you are out on your own now, doing only CART!!!" I said to her yes, and I love it and am having the time of my life. She looked at me incredulously, with a bit of a wrinkled-up nose, and said, "Well, you go right ahead." Between the lines, I read: "You can HAVE it! I wouldn't touch that with a ten-foot pole, and I think you're NUTS."
Their loss, I say.
What about you? Are you doing something new and exciting, something that's rejuvenated and reinvigorated you? Or do you want to? Tell us your stories and your dreams. I'm ready for a day of fun comments-reading.
