If” is a statement I won’t be using as much when retirement day comes. No more “if I had the time” or “if I wasn’t so tired” excuses. No more “if I could just learn that technique” or “if I didn’t have to work I could catch that game or go to dinner.”

No more “if I had time to do a regular workout” or “if I could just do the yardwork when I felt like it” or “if I just didn’t have to go to work after doctors appointments” or “if I could be off on a holiday and celebrate like most people.”

The if in retirement has been removed. A date is set.

Another day filled with possibilities. Ones I hope to take advantage of. I’ve been multitasking all night and morning and after a few hours sleep I’m plugging away again. The chores are completed, awaiting the trick or treaters in a little bit and then work again.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Leftover candy is a curse.
  • Trying your best always isn’t rewarded.
  • Be satisfied with what you feel are accomplishments.
  • It’s easier if you see others make mistakes and then not repeat them yourself.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
