Last week I offered the first of these challenges. I’m hoping that if you’re visiting this blog, you have at least a passing interest in retirement and the lifestyles it can bring. No matter how old you are, I’d like to challenge you once a week to give a little thought to your future.
Each Thursday for at least the next few months, after doing a post myself on the same general topic, I’ll suggest an aspect for you to consider and perhaps fit into the context of your own life.
If you’d like to share what you think, or post on it, that’s great – and I’d love it if you’d share those thoughts in a post or comment (tag posts: TRS Future Challenge and link to this post) so others can also see them.
If you choose not to share them, that’s fine too – but with any luck, you’ll still gain some insight on where you’re headed (or would like to be), and how you can get the most out of your own journey.
The holidays have become a time of indulgence for many. Then again, sometimes we indulge ourselves beyond the holidays. We all know we shouldn’t, but still we sneak that one more cookie, or make that one additional purchase…
After all, we tell ourselves, it’s “just this once.” We somehow think, or at least hope, we can get away without making any changes in our lives that we don’t want to make. There is something in us that believes we can defer consequences. After all, change is hard.
Looking to your future, what likely change or changes are you dreading – or hoping for? (Ideas: Are they big or small things? Fun or challenging? Do you think you can avoid them? How long can you wait before you will have to make a change? Will you change at all?)
For my own slightly humorous take on one aspect of this, see my post If I Am What I Eat, Am I Different at the Holidays?
