It’s a New Year!
I’ve asked myself this question for a while now.
It started when I went away all by myself.
I was in my hotel room and thought, “When was the last time I was away ALONE?”
I remember, it was in the hospital recovering from surgery!
I only go away when promised anesthesia and Jello! #livingthedreamLast time I was alone was under anesthesia! #livingthedream Click To Tweet
As the new year approached, I decided to brainstorm what I want to do once I’ve been phased out of full-time mom life.
It’s not just the kid who needs to decide what to be when He grows up.
What will I do once The Kid goes off to college, joins the circus, or becomes a Traveling Musician Architect with a YouTube Video Game channel?
I grabbed a pen and jotted down a few ideas.
4 things I could be when I grow up
- Masked crime Fighter
- Wonder Woman Body Double
- Super Secret Spy
- Somebody Super Fabulous that does Super Fabulous things Super Fabulously
Upon refection, I realized a few things.
1. Wearing a mask would make me feel claustrophobic.
Ever get your arm caught in the sleeve of your sweater and fear you’ll be stuck forever?
2. There aren’t enough Spanx in the UNIVERSE to make me look like Wonder Woman!
This was a harsh realization. I HAD Wonder Woman Underoos when I was a little girl!
3. Super Secret Spy???
Interesting in theory…but I don’t like to fly AND get lost
everywhere in new surroundings.
Not to mention the only “accent” I do is Minion from Despicable Me!
Also, 2 questions keep coming to mind.
1. Do Super Fabulous people wear a top knot bun and yoga pants? (And NOT do yoga?)
2. Do they check the clock to make sure it’s “officially” time for pajamas? (Official time is 4 pm… ANY time zone)
What’s my answer to “Now What”?
I don’t know!
What I DO know is I want to do more things that matter, take away things that don’t, ask myself hard questions and step out of my comfort zone.
That’s a pretty good start!
