I've been preoccupied with the fact that I am too preoccupied. Despite COVID bringing simpler days with less running around, because the available activities to take up my time have been shut down, my brain is still just as busy. I actually seem to be less able to be in the moment these days than when I was busy running around. How is that so? I blame my brain. My brain is wired for daydreaming, planning and multi-tasking, all things that keep it somewhere else and not in the moment. And having more quiet time is the perfect breeding
I thought for sure when all of my kids were grown enough to be in school that I would take a starring role in my life again. That just seems to be the natural progression of stages with kids right?

Nostalgia. It is perhaps one of the greatest gifts in life for those of us who have a few years added on to our youthful days. The memories, tastes and feelings of past feel good moments that still live on in your mind are pure gold. Life in the good old days...ahhhhh. It was all so simple then. Naturally.
