I think the biggest change from working to retirement is the mind change. It became most apparent on our recent vacation. As most know, we’re big on vacationing. But always before, the last two or three days of vacation were filled with thoughts of work: How many hundreds or thousands of emails will I have to deal with? How many key decisions did I miss? What deadlines are imminent?
None of that now! All gone! On the Kansas interstate I was struck by the difference in my mind. No longer filled with legislations, regulations, risk tolerances and deadlines…my mind was free to think about life, love, antiquity, bucket lists, and on and on! Life is good! Lovin’ livin’ it with the little M!
Still outside by the fire. Time for some stargazing!
