Something has just occurred to me and thought I would - should - share.
I am going to be 40 in 2 months and 3 days. I have closed my shop and therefore putting and end to the dream - and the huge stress - of owning my own business in this small, cliquey, thrifty (tongue in cheek) town and have quit one of my other two jobs and find myself working about 15 hours a week and that is it. I have been racking my brain trying to decide what I want to do with myself. I have always been a career rather than just a job person and just this second it occurred to me that I do not need to be.
There is no reason whatsoever (other than financial and I do not think that is a good enough reason) that I need to work more than I am or that I need to have a career. I am happy in my part-part time job and it will grow in to a busier job as time goes by so perhaps I need to settle the heck down and enjoy my time in semi-retirement and the last few months of my 30s!
So, I have decided I will do nothing. That's right. I said it. Nothing
(Well, I will sew, and clean and cook and love and smile and enjoy having next to no stress....)
Have a nice day - see you at the game!!
