Recently, I added the topic “hindsight” to my blog categories. Perhaps a bit self-indulgent, allowing me to reminisce about 31 years of marriage and the raising of our only child and reflect on some of what I would do differently… if I knew then, what I know now. What I really hope to do by putting my thoughts in writing is to support some of you currently on your journey.
I am by no means dissatisfied with the course of my life. In fact, quite the contrary, my husband and I are happily empty-nesting, my daughter lives independently and we all share a loving and secure relationship. As a middle-aged mother, I realize we achieved our ultimate goal, but along the way other things sometimes distracted us. I will share those things with you in upcoming posts. I will definitely start with the easy things like how differently I would approach reading and chores. I’ll need to work up to the sensitive, personal things like excess and money.
Feel free to share, comment, question and disagree.
Look for my first written hindsight tomorrow.
