We often feel frustration with a hint of regret about not enjoying our freedom to the fullest when we had it and we feel determined not to take it for granted when we get it back...

I panicked for a brief moment, when it all began....At first, my reaction was to start reading as much as I could about banks, the stock market and stuff like that. But after a while, I understood that I deeply really don't care at all about those things, so the next move was to go within, into myself.

It’s been really nice to spend this much time with my husband. We’re getting to know each other again after 27 years together.
