great expectations

You only realize how much your life has been about discipline when suddenly you are on your own with fewer pressing responsibilities. You have little basis for comparison because you get somewhere you have never been before. In your previous life you just accepted things as they were and dealt with your circumstances as best you could.

Whether it is accomodating parents, partners, children or society it suddenly dawns on you one day that you have come to a new juncture where you have a right to finally look after your own needs. The lessened outside expectations combined with the bonus of a complete disregard for the opinions of strangers, offers you a new perspective.

Life often brings us to places we do not expect after decisions are thrust upon us or we make those we never expected to and, I suspect I will learn to appreciate this stage of life all the more, once I am fully acclimated to it.
