When we get older, we might fall into the habit of living our lives (basically) for our children, and sometimes we forget to do things of interest for our own selves. New things.
Like, kids are always taking some sort of a class or another (swimming lessons, choir practice, drama, soccer, piano, etc). Why don't adults do that?
When was the last time you ever took a class?
When was the last time you did something that interested you, just for the sake of doing it?
Most of us don't set out to live our lives vicariously through our children, but sometimes it happens anyway, because it is so easy to fall into.
I've been aware of these thoughts and have tried to keep on top of them over the years. I've taken classes. I've started this thing called Grown Up Fun Times to help keep me doing fun and interesting things that I may have forgotten about over the years. I've started going to a Book Club (which was a new thing for me). And learning new hobbies, like drawing Manga.
That is all.
