For the past few months SP has been nudging me to review my goals for my future, and I said, "Goals? I'm supposed to have goals?" What would they be?
You see, I finished graduate work 13 years ago, our daughter is grown and married, and I've let my job practically take over my life. As a teacher, I am required to set professional goals each year. Those goals have encroached on the rest of my mind and my life like the weeds that take over my flower beds.
In addition, I'm also at that "dawn of retirement" stage where everybody starts asking me, "When are you going to retire?" I usually answer, "Oh, I think I have a few good years left in me!" I do still love my job, but lately I've wondered if I'm really putting off retirement because I've never taken the time to envision what it would look like?
The "Call to the past" blog, along with SC's prompting to visualize the future and set goals has made me realize that I've kind of lost track of where I want to go and what I want my future to be like. Thanks to SP, I think I've found my lost life!
