Todays Spark Coach was about visualizing yourself 10 years from now. One of the first things said was that 10 years will go by so quickly, how true that is. I want to retire at the age of 59-1/2. I am turning 57 this year. My mother is 83 and she says to work until I am 62, "that is only 5 more years". Everyone is saying how quickly time goes by and they are right. The older you get, the faster time goes by.
At the age of 67, I want to be healthy. I want to be able to take long walks. I want to be able to travel, to play with my grandchildren. My mother has emphysema and is a diabetic. She is extremely overweight and can barely walk from one end of her home to the other. She smoked for 50 years. She quit at the age of 70. I try to remember what she was like at 67. I don't want to be like that.
