I remember reading somewhere that we all die a few times in our life, meaning we shed our old skin and we start a new new chapter, a new new journey, and a new person arises and we feel refreshed.
I think we can all look back on times in our life where this has happened. Either through a traumatic experience or just board with who we are at that point in time. You just know it’s time for a change. It doesn’t matter how old you are, I’m 64 years young and I believe I’m ready for another change. I’m not quite sure which direction God wants me to travel. But what I do know, is that I feel lost, depressed, and bored with my life. I’m not sure what I am supposed to do even though there are a lot of projects and activities that I’ve wanted to do since I retired… but I’ve had to put my energies elsewhere this past year. I’m glad I was able to be there when needed but it’s time to start living my life and doing the things that I want to do and not feel guilty when I say NO I can’t do that or NO I can’t be there. That is my struggle. Finding a balance is not easy. Setting boundaries is a must. In any area of our lives.
So… I need a refresh. And I’m going to work hard and with Gods help I will get there! I may only be on the first page of my new chapter but one day at a time is all I can ask of myself right now. Let the shedding of my old skin begin 🙂
Keep living your life!!
