Tonight I will bring in the New Year volunteering at my local Jazz Club, being a participant observer of the celebrations:-) The start of a New Year is a time of renewal, renewed hoped and “resolutions”, fresh starts, and sometimes a time to leave behind what isn’t working for us.
As I reflect on my first full year and a half of retirement…there are some things that I have loved about it, and some things I will plan to adjust. Overall, I am loving this new retirement life. The part time jobs keep me social and happy, and yet stress free, and the time freedom in between, and the option to make daily choices is very freeing after a full lifetime of work. I love having the time to enjoy a good book, to journal a bit, to look after my health in a more pro-active way, and to stay more connected with family and friends. And as I move forward, I will review my Values and Vision for the future, and adjust my course in any ways that I think I should….
Will you be re-evaluating your life? What will you want to keep the same? To change?
Food for thought…
