My mind is racing this morning with too many thoughts and not enough time. I’m preoccupied with some problems, but at the same time I’m thinking of creative things I want to do and changes I want to make in my life. It’s like the mid-life crisis of 40 all over again. LOL
I know that my current mindset has been prompted by my decision to retire from teaching. I should make it clear that I have no desire to stop working, nor will my finances allow me to do that. So I’ll be applying for SS, but also looking for a part-time job. That causes my mind to wonder, “What kind of job?” The possibilities are constantly running a dialogue in the recesses of my mind.
School is still a challenge this year and I’m not one to just “coast through” even my last year. So I’m frequently mulling over ways to do things better and to make this last year successful.
There are some community activities going on that I like to be part of and I have some ideas for improving.
My mind comes up with a new writing project almost daily! I’m currently working on a children’s book, an article about teaching, and a genealogy project.
We have some family situations that need attention and prayer, so part of my mind is there.
I’m trying to decide what to do about a new camera.
Thinking, thinking, thinking….
The result of my mid-life crisis at 40 was a new career. I went back to college and became a teacher! Wonder what I’ll do this time?
