Something crazy happens when the kids leave the house and life settles down. Your days are no longer necessarily dictated by taking care of the details of kids. The house stays fairly clean. The husband still leaves for work every morning. You're left with time to figure out "what's next?". I've spent the last 9 months or so thinking, dreaming and doing a little scheming. Trying to figure out if hobby stuff should stay a hobby or become a business. Figuring out if I'm willing to take a risk and put myself out there and actually try to "be" what I'd like to be. I had lunch with a friend the other day and we were talking about her business and the courage it took for her to decide to go for it. I love that it's working for her. She's so great at what she does. It's a total joy to watch her living her dream. I'm almost ready to commit and go for it. My word for 2013 (adventure) is pushing me to leave the safety of "hobbyville" and think about "realville".
I feel like I'm sitting on the start line and they're about to wave the flag to start the race. My heart beats a little faster when I think about it. I smile when I think about daring to be something for "real" instead of just playing around with it. I'm almost there. It's a scary and happy place to be... Maybe soon I'll share my little dream with you and it'll all be out there and I won't be able to sit and dream about it. I'll have to BE about it... ;)
