More than this provincial life!

More than this provincial life!

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?
