I spent all my early adult years raising children and doing for everyone else. And now suddenly, I am doing for myself. I have spare time, my husband and I are doing reasonably well financially, we've taken up some things together and are thinking about doing some traveling. While I am a little bored and am thinking about getting a volunteer position somewhere, I feel so liberated. I'm in good health and I feel better than I have at so many other times in my life. I am thinking it is true that life begins at 50.
