Looking back over the years, I remember having lists of things to accomplish. Sometimes they were just a fixture in my brain, while others I actually wrote down and revisited on a regular basis. A lot of amazing things came as a result of working toward these goals.
I’m not sure when I stopped paying attention and let life run its course. Not that things have been bad, but I think I settled in and stopped stretching. It’s amazing how much the world can shrink when I let myself get into a rut. There’s so much more out there and I’m not done learning, creating and contributing.
After almost thirty years in my current job, I’ve set my retirement date on or before January 12th, 2019. It’s a scary thought in some ways and very exciting in others. When I think of retirement, it’s really just leaving my current job to move on to my next adventure. What is it? I’m not quite sure.
Five years seems like a long time, but I know it will pass quickly. So, over the next few weeks, I’ll begin putting together my list of things to accomplish. This time, they’ll all be in writing.
My life, even at almost 55, is a work in progress. Now, where should I begin?
