I am constantly asked by friends and family if I’m bored …
… you see, they assume that because I’ve stopped work that I am ‘retired’ – a word that is (statistically) only a few months or years removed from ‘death’ (real, not metaphoric).
What they don’t realize, is that I have retired from full-time, traditional work to LIVE … to, live my Life’s Purpose.
Selling my business was merely the first step, writing this blog was the second step … fate will dictate the remaining steps, but I have a general direction in mind.
The problem is, I haven’t told anybody (other than my wife, my children, a couple of VERY close friends who don’t even know the name I write under, and all of you) about my blog or the direction this is all heading … I guess they’ll find out if/when the book is published 😉
In the meantime, I chanced upon the sketch, above, and suddenly see myself in their eyes: to them, I’m insufferable!
I’ll have to make up a ‘hard working’ cover story pretty soon 😛
