With A Flourish

Tarot of Little Secrets ~ Page of Coins

Initiation. So what does initiation mean in relation to retirement?

Learning to pace. When I met Rob's Uncle Elmer he was 51, just diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. They took one lung and one-third of the other. He lived another 25 years, I'm convinced because he paced himself. He hunted, fished, cleared property, built a house and big barn...but you never actually saw him doing something. He'd figured out you can move Earth half an hour at a time.

I think this wisdom applies even when energy and health are in abundance. We no long need to rush everything we do, we have the time to not only do it, but do it well. With a flourish, and not all this very minute. Cool.

  1. Savor the moments. I have been thinking along those lines, to really slow down and appreciate, well everything.

  2. Initiation is a good description of retirement - figuring out what to do, how to do it simply, and as you said, at less rushed pace.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
