Life is What Happens While You're Making Other Plans

I've been a legal assistant/paralegal for many years. I've always been grateful for the work as it helps feed my family and make payments on my little house. But what I really wanted to be was an artist - a painter or singer or dancer. Alas, it was not to be. In order to not let frustration or stress get the better of me I create items I myself like and enjoy thrifting or embroidery or gardening - you get the idea! It is MUCH easier than yoga and cheaper than psychoanalysis.
