When I worked full time, I somehow managed to have a great marriage, raise two wonderful kids, lead a brownie troop and cub scout den, taught Sunday school, keep a pin neat house, had a rockin' career, worked 10 hour days, prepared home cooked meals and managed to find time to volunteered at the local firehouse and so much more.
Since the time in which I was unemployed, I hardly accomplished anything. Truly. Some of it, I'm sure is that fact that I was swallowed up by the whole depression of the conflicting times. If you are not mindful of this, you can quickly slide down the slippery slope. Meds only work so much but to make a real change, one needs something to look forward to. (yes, I am dangling a preposition, but I'm from the Midwest...that's what we do).
My hopes for this new chapter in my life is that I become that maniac of a "doer" again. That the pure excitement of life drives me to become a person who accomplishes much.
