Just turned 40 and am trying to discover who I am. My children are almost grown and I feel as if I haven’t done much with my life for me in a very long while. I have recently gone back to school to finish my BA and have changed my major from Teaching to IIT. I enjoy listening to music, that is music I can actually make out what their saying. Additionally, I enjoy feeling the emotions that music brings out in me and would like to learn how to express my own thoughts and feelings through musical expression. However, school and family still have to come first, so musical expression will have to be put on a back burner for now.
Lastly, I enjoy putting feelings down on paper, but don't often share because I am afraid of rejection. So I am trying to step out of my box and explore a side of me that has laid dormant for a very long time. Discovering who I am for ME!
