I have realized, thus far in life, I have always worked toward a goal. Even though reaching the goals were not as lofty as my original thoughts, the goals gave me purpose and direction. At this stage in my life, I miss having a goal to guide me to a new adventure.
I have been blessed by being able to learn many things in my life and had two meaningful careers and many exciting jobs, but what comes next. I am honestly unsure, my body is slowly failing, my memory is not what it used to be, but my spirit is still as vibrant as ever.
Thus, my big retirement question is – what is next? Can I find one more adventure? I am less interested in having a long life and more interested in having as much joy in life’s last years as I can manage. So, what’s next?
