Seriously, maybe I have to consider not working. What a difference having this time off makes! Granted the weather is also cooperating - sunny and warm - but I am happy to be drifting through my days. I am happy to be cleaning the house and happy to be doing yard work. I can take time to just be. I can paint and read. I can take bike rides and walk the dogs. I am not jamming a million things into my day. I can breathe.
How long would I be content to just be? There is satisfaction in my work. I do enjoy the contacts with the kids and the parents. I get a lot from my work but at what price? Life is short and feels as if it is getting shorter and shorter. I am well aware that my days are numbered. How can I make the most of them? Is working really the best way to spend my life? Good question.
