When we advance in our years and suddenly feel the pressures of life, the universe and everything bearing down upon our shoulders, it’s easy to forget the people we used to be.
This is particularly true as you recover from being scalded by the embers of a marriage that was going nowhere.
The fact is, if you are able to reconnect with the soul you once were, you might also be able to tap into a pocket of the energy that used to drive and thrill you.
Dig back in your dim and distant past and remember the things you used to do, the things that made the hair on the back of your neck stand up with excitement, the things that made you buzz.
Was it dancing, was it diving, was it potholing or abseiling? Whatever it was, pick up the old threads and try the activity again.
You may have to make a few adjustments to your level of participation, but you might find whatever the activity is, you take to it like and old duck to water.
It’s got to be worth a shot, for the giggle factor alone!
