Retirement: A Beginning

When I retired from my job with the University, many asked me how it felt to retire.  Well, it felt exciting.  Still does!  You see, now ALL of my time is my own to do with as I wish.  I can spend all day lazing around the house.  Play with the grandchildren more.  Garden when I feel like.  Travel at will without asking my boss for permission to take time off.  Sleep in or not.  Eat lunch on my schedule.  My time is my own to use or waste.  Do I do some or all of this?  Sure. I retired from a job, not life.  Ask me what I retired to and I will tell you I retired to LIFE.  Living Intentionally For Excellence.  I alone am responsible for all of my minutes so I choose to spend my time maximizing my relationships, health, personal development and effort to serve others.  When you retire, what will you retire to?  Tractor Dudes, in abstract copy

    That sums it up.

    NICE!

    God chooses what we go through, we choose how we go through it.

  2. Each weekday evening after work and every weekend day I’ve been practicing for retirement by deliberately choosing how I spend my time. Why wait for retirement? 🙂
