Finding My Sea Legs in this Boat called Retirement

I don’t want to sink. I have to find my balance in retirement and not take on too much, nor too little. It feels very much like boarding a small boat or canoe, where the balance is key. Move too far to one side and over you go, or at the very least you begin to take on water.

It must be like this for everyone, wouldn’t you think? Or have those who have gone before me found it a cake walk, taken to it like a fish to water, adapted and never looked back? I’m sure it will come to me and I don’t want to leave the impression that I’m floundering so much that I’m going to lose it, it’s just that at times it seems almost overwhelming. I have so much to do, so much I want to do, so little time it seems. How can that be, all I have now is time, it’s all I ever wanted.

It’s about schedules, still about planning and coordination, and effective use of time. Time, that all elusive entity, the thing we all crave more of.

“Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.” -Jeremy Schwartz
