I’ve withdrawn myself from all the things I don’t do well.
I am constantly growing, though. I guess this “retired” mentality is taking you places. Like to who and where you want to be. I took the liberty to abstain from what I dislike doing, and now, I am creating what they call “The rest of your life.”
However, I believe that if I had known who I wanted to be earlier, I might have retired earlier. Many things would not have happened, but I would have been much happier.
Again and again, you are faced with the truth of who you want to be, finding the power to walk your talk given integrity.
That’s a precious moment in life. Because, as I said yesterday will-power is not enough. Something about being committed to integrity is stronger and makes you grow intuitively.
An old Zen story says enlightenment is simply: “When hungry – eat, when tired – sleep.” That’s what my retirement looks like.
But shouldn’t this be the way you live? Way before you retire?
When you work, you create and think you can sacrifice yourself, your well-being, and your peace of mind for that which you are creating.
B.S. – No you; no creation, that’s what I say.
I’ll leave you with this thought today.
