Not one bit
When I'm driving down the mountain and music fills the spaces all around me
with songs like this:
That's when the right words suddenly pour from some hidden spring buried deep within my brain. Music is the magic tap, always....
Twice in two weeks, it has come up, this wonderful life of mine. A "soccer mom" comment and a "what DO you do all day?"
Maybe it's because I look weightless, burdens safely tucked in the palm of my hand and not strapped to my back. Or maybe it's because I find joy in my living. Or maybe it's because I live like I mean it. Or maybe because I live every day with gratitude. Money does not make me happy, and managing it is my least favorite thing to do. But living like everyday is my last, that's what makes a life a good life. So hell yes, I will paint, I will write, I will take pictures, I will snowboard, hike, learn to do new things and I will do it all while being the best mom and wife that I can be, because that is what I am here to do.
To live, to love and to learn, shamelessly, earnestly, completely.
Not. one. bit. :)
