Anyone up for an adventure?
I am, and for once it looks like I have the time. 🙂 There’s a big change coming up for me in less than a week. After working full-time for long, long time I’m cashing in for a while. One of my favorite fictional characters is Travis McGee, and he took retirement on the installment plan. So, as of February 1st, I’m taking my 1st installment.
I graduated from college a couple of years early and immediately went to work full-time. I’ve been through all sorts of corporate mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies and name changes. I’ve been consolidated, decentralized, right-sized, restructured and reorganized for more than 30 years, and I’ve been a corporate survivor. This year was the right time to just be retired.
I’m not sure how long this installment will last, and I will definitely be working again ~ probably until I’m 70!! ~ but when, where and what next is wide open! In the meantime, I am excited to start a new chapter in my life.
I’m going to spend time with friends and loved ones, travel and dive a bit, and putz around on lots of projects. Can’t wait to spend time in some of my favorite places ~ Islamorada, Seaside and Tybee. I’m going to make ice cream and go to the gym regularly. I’m going to finish my perfect beach cottage, try out some new drinks and eats with Bluwaterguy, and read that stack of books next to my favorite chair. I’m also finally going to have time to expand bluwaterlife.com and post more often here on my blog. This is life enjoyed.
Next Friday afternoon, the future is wide open. Anyone up for an adventure? Cool. Give me a call. I’ve got some time ~~~
