I know this title sounds a little strange. How can one forget they love something? Easy! Life is busy, crazy, and I don’t always make time for all the little things I truly enjoy.
Reading: I definitely read more in the summer since I have a lot more time to go to the library and just while away a couple hours with a good book. Ever since I stopped taking melatonin, I have been reading before bed as a way to fall asleep. It is now part of my nightly routine and I am so glad I made time for it! I just requested a bunch of Mary Higgins Clark books from the library, but I am MOST excited for a book a bought off Amazon yesterday (DAMN TO HELL THAT 1 CLICK ORDERING PROCESS!!!)- The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed. After listening to a podcast about her death, I am interested in reading about the theory she was murdered.
Teaching piano lessons: Tuesdays = doom. I work all day, then I go home and teach six piano lessons. I am not done until 7:30pm. I dread Tuesdays. But then once I’m in it, I realize I am actually enjoying myself. I have very nice students who are smart, funny, and occasionally hilarious. My goal is to begin looking at Tuesdays like this: I GET to teach piano lessons, not I HAVE to teach piano lessons.
Donuts: It is very sad that I often forget about donuts and how yummy they are. But on the other hand, maybe that is good… In any case, I recently remembered how much I love donuts and got a couple at the store yesterday.
Broadway music: When I was in high school, I would lock myself in my bedroom and listen to Broadway soundtracks straight through. Chicago, Sunset Boulevard, Joseph, Phantom... I was obsessed! I'm not quite as obsessed anymore, but I still LOVE musicals. I need to make more of an effort to listen to them. It's not like I don't have to opportunity... I sure have a lot of CDs in my basement!
What do you forget that you love?
