Another day to link up with Helen at:
and excited to be challenged to "find the fab" in my life!
Today, the challenge is to write a "postcard from your ideal life"...
So, here goes:
"Retirement is great! Leaving today for a cruise and visiting a few of those places on my 'Bucket List'. Once I return home from this cruise, I have plans to visit friends around the country in a whirl-wind road trip. Who knows, I may show up at your house in the next few days or weeks! But, for now, I'm off to cruise away..."
That would be my ideal life!
In retirement, I had wanted to have the money to travel and see places all around the world and the US that I either have never been to, or that I'd love to visit (either for the first time, or a return trip).
But, retiring earlier than expected with a bank account that doesn't allow for a lot of traveling...
That retirement dream is over!
BUT, I am not unhappy with my retirement life! It is FLEXIBLE, FUN, FULL. I love the flexibility of just making plans to do something at the last minute; or to do nothing at all, if that is what I want to do.
And, the traveling?
Well, there has been and will be a little traveling; if not only to go to an out of town retreat or to visit family; or maybe go to a few places I'd like to visit...
But, it won't be to the extent I had originally planned!
And that is OK, because I am enjoying this life that I have; and who knows...
...only God knows what is in my future because He has HIS PLANS FOR MY LIFE!
