6. Retirement: weve worked for it all of our lives and looked forward to it as a time of reward and relaxation. Now it’s upon us and we need to ensure that we have something focused to do with that time. Our adult years are often so busy living, working, taking care of our kids, and being involved with our communities. Two of those major things are now gone – kids and work. What will we do with all of that time and have we made a plan for our retirement so we don’t stagnate or plant ourselves in that rocking chair too early? Whether you are in retirement now or you are approaching it, writing is such a great way to reflect back upon our lives and remember all those fond milestones and accomplishments. There is a lifetime to contemplate, reflect and write about. Having the time to now do that and put it on paper is an excellent way to share your stories and the things you have learned. There is also more time to travel and get active in various causes or even volunteer. What great things to write about.
1. Childhood: while it may seem a dim and distant memory, our childhood was a very interesting time and one that which it would be nice to return to when our adult lives seem difficult. It was a time of wonder and learning…and gazing wishfully at adults who “had it so good”. Think back to the wonder, the innocence of our childhood. The super hero games, dolls, simple toys that truly sparked the imagination. Jot down some notes as you allow yourself to reflect. Sometimes it’s useful to chat about your childhood with the people who shared it with you, your siblings and parents. Jot their ideas down as well. Soon you will have a list that when you review you will see that the ideas and the emotions are all there to be written about. These are things that are still needed in our complex and fast-paced society today.
