Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Today is my first day of vacation..... let me say that I have not had a day off for a LONG time- it has been a year when almost everyday I have had some kind of responsibility..... working at preschool, practicing or playing music, babysitting my 3 year old granddaughter, taking care of my 17 year old son....... so I am officially taking the summer off.  Last night I actually made plans with a friend to go swimming and go to an art class.  I kept asking myself...... Don't I have something that I am responsible for that prevents me from making plans?  ..... the answer was  " no" and it was kinda freaky!  

Yesterday I actually missed being able to fix supper for my son and daughter.  I was like... you mean I have time to myself.

So  it is a big responsibility to have free time!  I know I have LOTS of things I want to accomplish, but will I use my free time to the best advantage?    In 2 weeks I am going to Redding California for a 2 week conference at Bethel Church- I will be a 60 year old woman in a sea of 20-30 year olds!  Hugely out of my comfort zone!!!   Taking all kinds of classes dance, music, etc.  As a basically shy person who has been plugged into job and family for the last 10-15-20- 27  years, it is a big big jump!

But I am looking forward to trying new things - I know I will feel uncomfortable!  I know I will feel anxious- I know I will feel like a  duck out of water- but I also know that  doing new things connects us to who we are and who we can become.  I am excited!

Hi Deborah. Its sounds like you have a good life with a lot of pluses. Enjoy your 2 weeks in CA. I am 56 and I work as a receptionist at a local music academy (for all ages) and my coworkers are all 20-30 yr. olds. I feel as though they liven up my life and that I am blessed to work with them. Their energy is young and fresh and I get a kick out of knowing more about music then they think I do. I love music and it is a universal language with no age limitations. You will be amazed how loving young people can be when they see older adults embracing life along with them. You may be shy...but I doubt it will be for long. Enjoy the roller coaster ride and hope to hear how the trip went...in a couple weeks.
