I have always envied Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Belle “wants adventure in the great wide somewhere.” Just like her, “I want it more than I can tell.” I rushed through college and began working before I graduated. I started building my career. I built a family. I bought a car and a house. I worked hard and got satisfaction from making a difference in the world. I did all of the “normal” things but I started to feel small and smothered.
It has taken a while, but my girls are grown and independent. I have a new Hot Hubby that encourages me. I am ready for the Adventure. And I want to pass it on, so that my girls don’t wait as long as I did to get out there! I think there are only two times in your life when you are really free…in college and in retirement. I missed my chance in college. I don’t want to make the same mistake twice.
I would like to write more, but Belle and I are headed to China to visit Mulan. What’s on your bucket list?
