If Your Life Isn't Leaving Your Inspired, It's Time For A Change
I was inspired by a quote by Dolly Parton, ‘if you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving a new one’. Admittedly, not a new concept, but after a few days of feeling bored and uninspired, waiting for something to happen, the quote really hit me hard.
What am I waiting for? Indeed.
I spent almost a week in Switzerland with a good friend and as I left, I started forming the idea of vacationing there for a month next summer. That idea has me inspired.
But…that got me thinking…it’s not a month in Switzerland I want. I long to return to live there again. Why am I not planning that?
As I pondered this on the flight home, I realized I’m feeling stuck…still working but retirement is on the horizon. It’s like somehow I’ve slipped into a waiting game, no longer making things happen, but rather waiting for things to happen.
My future feels uncertain…when to retire is one question, who to retire with is another, how to retire yet another. Add in some doubt about my knees and some frustration about losing those ‘Covid 30’ extra pounds and everything seems like a big question mark right now.
My financial plan is solid so for the first time in my life, that’s not a limiting factor. I think it’s the ‘blank, white space’ of it all that feels uncertain. Perhaps so much choice is leaving me paralyzed with indecision.
Time for some soul searching on this to determine what’s next. And I’m going to use my blog to keep me accountable and I’m looking for your support and encouragement as I do this.
Stay tuned for updates on this journey.
