What scares some people about retirement is trying to figure out what to do with their lives.
For those who consider themselves there, it’s time to ask and answer the ‘retirement question’. Stepping out of the work force creates an in-depth, sometimes subtle look into – Who am I now? That’s when it hits some people that they aren’t their jobs, nor their kids who are grown and gone.
Some of you will travel the world, others will stay home and catch up with life. You can volunteer hours to your favorite cause or even start your own business.
The questions still remain: Who are you? What’s yours to do? And to cap it all, what really matters most?
Here’s another option. Go into The Withdrawing Room for a short period of time – that inner space where you can choose to deeply reflect on your next steps. While there, I invite you to consider this word combination that recently came to me – art and service.
I looked up the words art and service and then created a life-style statement around them:
Art & Service, as a way of life and living, is the actualization of your human creativity skills and imagination to help yourself or someone else.
I leave you with the above statement to ponder how it applies to where you are now and into your future. Try writing it down and reading it again.
Let The Withdrawing Room experience be an inner retreat which helps you confidently create your next stage of life.
To a life of Art & Service!
