It was strange at first--and exciting--to have so much time! Never before had the days felt so luxuriously long. There was so much I could do, so many things I could fill my day with. Driving kids to and from school, baking, housework, reading and, of course, writing. Lots of writing. HOURS of writing each day.
I am loving it!
I don't have to fret about having time to write. I don't have to debate whether to stay up late to work on a manuscript or to go to bed and read or watch the news with hubby. I no longer feel the desperate urge to spend hours on Saturday morning working on my WIP when I could be hanging out with my kids playing Mario Kart or baking cookies.
Being a wife and mother has always been the most important thing to me. It was what I dreamed of most when I was growing up. My life is a dream come true!
And now I have plenty of time to live the dream while pursuing another.
What about you? Are you living the dream, pursuing the dream, or both?
