As we age, responsibilities shift and priorities change.
|My daughter's weekend art project for school!|
For example, it's October. Even up to a few years ago I was plotting out all my weekends around "Oktoberfest" - which I still love - it's just not a huge priority now.
|October means playing in the leaves at my "day job."|
We are learning how fast shutter speeds capture movement in images.
|Sunset watching with my girl!|
|HOCO Spirit Week - Jersey Day - at my "day job" :-)|
|Walking in New Haven the first weekend of October with my daughter.|
Add all that up, and toss in my full time "day job" demands, Oktoberfest is taking a back burner. If it happens, great! If not, I won't be crushed.

|Two is company, three is a crowd! I thought two was plenty...but...|
I tried (with no luck) to find this boy a home for nearly a month. I even talked to various vets, and the Humane Society. I finally let him adopt me.
I never had much company use my spare bedroom, so after a two-day vet visit...this became Murphy's room at our house.
We are slowly opening doors and letting him explore. The other cats are the issue. Zoey is angry. Patches is all over him wanting his friendship, which makes Murphy angry. Emotions run high! I can also tell that Murphy is wondering why he can't go outside anymore. I am praying he gets over it and accepts a life as a spoiled inside feline.
I didn't want three cats, but as I said before: responsibilities (and priorities) shift as we age.
Side-note: I am almost 42. I like myself more than I have in my entire life. This version of Michelle is very content (minus the extra pounds I carry, but that's neither here nor there right now - because I am actually taking steps to make those extra pounds a little less).
Have your priorities and responsibilities shifted as you've made your way through life? I am willing to bet so... and if not... well, that is something you may wanna look into! :-)
