Life Update for January

It’s been a while since I’ve been on here. But I think it’s time for a little life update. So much has changed in the last few months. With the biggest life update being that I just turned 42! How did that happen??

Life Update – Me

It really feels like I’m entering a new phase in my life. I guess that comes with turning 42!! Another seven year cycle completed. And there are some strange symptoms that are accompanying this new path. For one thing, I’ve given up social media. I know, right?! And drinking. Huh?? People have told me that I’m brave and that they would never be able to do it. I’m sure a few of them secretly think I’m crazy. But for me, it’s about setting myself free. No more comparing myself to lives that I know aren’t real, but still look so great and real and wonderful. No more drinking and then feeling super down afterwards. And I have so much more time to do other things now!

I’ve started reading again. What a delicious, wonderful way to pass the time. I finally finished Steven King’s It, after starting it about a year ago.  And there is a long list of other (long, meaty) books I want to read. I’ve also started doing macramé. And started writing again. It feels great to do things that are creative and rewarding!

Life Update – Career

I’ve also decided to start studying again. I have felt the need to do something bigger than myself for a while now. I need to do something that can make a difference but I feel ill-equipped to do it effectively. I’m so excited to register for another degree in a few months. Watch out world! I’m coming for ya!

Life Update – The Kids

As for the kids and homeschooling, this year is going to be about strewing and adventuring. The kids did really well with reading and maths last year. This year we want to spark some more (hopefully creative) interests in them. And to take them on lots of horizon-expanding adventures. We hope to spend a few months in another city and to all go when G plays gigs. We are so fortunate to be able to come and go as we please. So it would be a shame to not take advantage of this!
