THAT is a huge thing. DH has to develop some hobbies. But he is little by little. Definitely love spending time w/him, but we need time to be alone, too.

Yes, it takes lots of financial planning to be ready for retirement in this day and age. But we're winding our way thru that, as well. We have a really good financial advisor, so I feel pretty comfortable with our future plans.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

Yeah about that. Walt and I aren't too far from retirement ourselves. So that's what we're both striving for. Setting it all up. Making sure all our ducks are in a row, especially financially.
We'll be debt free by the end of this year. We just made the final payment on the Subaru! That will definitely help Now we put that money n another debtor and get them paid off.
We also have Mutual Funds and RRSPs and TFSAs So we should be alright.

The biggest thing is to find things to keep us busy so we don't drive each other bonkers with boredom! LOL
I have my yards, writing and painting. He has his workshop and building garbage bins for the town So HOPEFULLY....



TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

Right now DH and i are in a new phase of our life . . empty nesters. That takes some getting used to, and is fun. But we are building our new routines. He still works and I help him w/that. I also am involved in a grief support group. It is so fulfilling to be involved. It helps me and others involved.

We are thinking about what we want to do when DH retires. That will be another new phase of our lives.

Lots to look forward to and be part of.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

All you can do is all you can do and all you can do is enough.
Be here, be yourself.

Most of us have the feeling that we are here to accomplish something extraordinary in our lives. Some of us are. But those of us that aren't if we haven't done something that fits the bill we may feel as if we are always waiting. We may feel incomplete, or empty as if our lives don't yet make sense to us, because they don't line up with our idea of major accomplishment. In some cases, this may be because we really are meant to do something that we haven't yet done. But in most cases, we can let ourselves off the hook with the realization that just being here, being ourselves, is enough.

We are exactly where we are meant to be.

As we live our lives in this world, we share our energy and our spirit with the people around us in numerous ways. Our influence touches their lives and, through them, touches the lives of many more people. When we strive to live our lives to the fullest and to become our true selves, we are doing something extraordinary on an inner level, and that is more than enough to make sense of our being here on this planet at this time. There is no need to hold ourselves to an old idea in the back of our minds that we need to make headlines or single-handedly save the world in order to validate our existence.

We can each look within our hearts to discover what is true for us, what gives our lives meaning, and what excites us. We can release ourselves from any pressure to perform that comes from outside of our inner sense of purpose. Staying in tune with our own values and living our lives in tune with our own vision is all we need in order to fulfill our time here. Our lives are a process of becoming so that we cannot help but cocreate; being who we are, responding to each moment as it comes, we can trust that this is enough.

What are you striving for?
