My new phase of retirement is going to be a challenge. Can I do it? We’ll see.
The challenge begins in five weeks when my husband retires from his job as an airline pilot. He is used to traveling, having jet lag and doing his own thing.
The truth shall set you free… Honesty is good for the soul…
These are both great sayings, but they never meant as much to me as they do today. At 69, I have decided it’s time to tell my story.
Today, I started packing up my home. The memories were playing in my head while I packed and taped the bubble-wrap. We spend so many years saving things, like little snippets of our lives.
Why do we live in the past? Why don’t we look forward to whatever years we have left? Is it because we know we’re going to die? If so, I can’t think of a better reason to enjoy our lives and keep planning for the future. We should never stop dreaming, dancing, laughing and learning.
