If you are at or near the traditional age of retirement, this series of blogs is for you.
I’ve made a study of what it takes to ensure a rich full and satisfying 2nd chapter of life. In these blogs I’ll be sharing the insights I’ve gained with the hopes they will be of benefit to you.
When I spoke of “luck” a few days ago I wanted to emphasize an important aspect of that blessed condition. It is the appreciation of everything in our lives as they occur. When I was having those feelings of gratitude for my good luck I was with my very special friend, Greg. We share a lot of interests including writing and philosophy. Our friends, like our families and all our relationships contribute so much to our experiencing a life well lived. Again, we must remind ourselves to enjoy the time we have with them in the moment.
On one occasion Patricia and I were riding in an open-air vehicle in the San Juan mountains with our friends Lee and Roses.
We were breathing in the cool fresh air of that sunny fall morning and thoroughly enjoying one another’s company. With a smile on her beautiful face Roses declared,” If you’re luck y enough to live in the mountains, you’re lucky enough.” That reminded me to be in the moment and be grateful for what I have right then. I wish that for you too.
