Chapter 1 "The Spark"

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Chris's co-worker counting down his time until retirement. So then what? I was guilty of this. When I stop working and enduring this life then I will really start to live. Is that what we think will really happen? For 40 years we get up and go to work many times dreading it then some how magically on the day we retire from that we are going to know what to do and how to do it so we don't become a full time couch potato, since for the last 40 years we were only a part-time couch potato? This chapter motivated so that I don't want to be that guy either. I don't want life to just pass me by. Just existing is no longer enough. I am so glad that this site popped up at just the right time and that I invested in the book. I am planning now what I want and getting pictures to keep before me. If you haven't gotten the book I recommend you do so for you. One Spark really can light a life.

    And let's be healthy when we DO end up getting to retirement....to live well is to be well! If I am to retire in say 20 years, what good will it do me if I am too fat and unhealthy to get out and do anything?

    Considering the way social security is going, I doubt I will even consider retirement before 75--and that's a lot younger of an age than it used to be, particularly when we take care of ourselves! But I don't wait for retirement for my life to begin--I love it and live it now!
