I had a period of about 18 months after I DA'd and quit service, meetings, etc. also lost my wife, friends, house....... all the stuff that happens when you leave, and found myself with lots of time! So I started doing more reading, coaching kids sports, I like my job so did some extra work ($$) too. Now, life is great, much more balanced. Also I feel i'm giving something back to my community.
The witness life keeps you so busy that life cannot be enjoyed. In fact, I remember it being said from the platform once, "If you're enjoying life now with few problems, you're doing something WRONG".
