My second child leaves the nest in less than a week. Only one little bird left at home. At 13, her wings are formed and she is in the process of making them stronger in preparation for her own flight. This year, between school and her dance classes, she will be home and awake approximately three hours a day. My days are wide open! My work here is almost done. What will I do now? My first career is coming to an end. The last 23 years have been devoted to my family and they have been wonderful. I don't multi-task very well, so focusing on the education and well-being of my family has really been my primary occupation. In my own opinion, it has been a success. My children are relatively happy, well adjusted, kind and productive people. But now, what? From the very beginning of our marriage, Danny and I have spent all of our money on education. Medical school, Montessori school, dance lessons, soccer lessons, college for Chelsea and now Alex, and a few classes here and there for myself is where we have invested our money. The returns on our investments have been great! However, my own education has taken a backseat, while we were busy educating everyone else. So, its my turn now. But what am I passionate about? Lots of things! But not just one thing. Interior decorating, design, clothing, cooking, photography, art, books, travel, writing, exercise, vintage jewelry and movies are a few of my favorite things, or things that could be favorites if I could commit to them long enough to get to know them. So, what if I took the next year to explore each of these paths in depth, in an attempt to grow some wings of my own in preparation for the upcoming emptying of the nest?
