Coffee at the right! I have learned to look for new pathways. What I mean by finding them, is being open to possibilities, new experiences. Changing things up helps. It doesn’t mean changing things all at once.
It does mean reaching out to others and getting involved with others. This is not something I have done, not a habit____however, it is time to reach out I feel. In itself, this has become a new path.
In looking back I do wonder why I have not reached out. I think of my observations of my mother, and I do not recall her as a person who reached out a lot. Is such an observance part of what we develop as personal habits? Maybe it’s part of it. Then, we moved into self-discovery, and who we want to be. I became more extroverted after meeting Thomas, it also began as I began my degree program. I had not driven a car until then, my world was like being on an island since I was a child, at home, then in my own home.
I examined the thoughts around this. Thomas and I were very comfortable with just us, and family as they came and went. We did not do things with friends great deal. He worked, I worked in the studio. Not reaching out by making plans.
Having friends is important. I am glad to have this focus at last. What do we know of life if we have no experiences other than our immediate ones?
Being more involved as a parent and grandparent. Not waiting for one’s children to take first steps with events. Come up with ideas, and do things. Easter is coming soon!
How to do, all I do and want to do? Letting weekends be weekends and evenings, evenings are a start.
Best wishes! May your days be sunny and bright!
