My Retirement Hat
All of my hats fit me and my diverse interests very well.
My retirement hat is now my newest favorite hat!
What to do first? I started by tackling my endless list of home, garden, and other yet-to-be-started projects. During the first few months, while painting, decluttering, and rearranging furniture, I put my creative and artistic hats back on and got to work. I prioritized my studio space, knowing it's my daily inspiration, and began to feel the freedom that can only be known when you finally hang up your lifetime of work hat for any other hat you feel like wearing.
I'm slowly getting reacquainted with my writing hat. I'm working on several short stories for a book that I hope to launch by the beginning of next year and will be the first of a short stories series.
Retirement is the stage of life I have been looking forward to for a long while, and now that I'm here, I'm enjoying it to the fullest of my abilities while doing, learning, and "chilling" whenever the mood occurs.
NOTE: Putting on our retirement hat for some of us does not mean we need to stop wearing our Work at Home Hat or, it may even be a good time for others to try that new hat on for size.
This hat is essential in many ways; it will help keep your mind younger and sharper while keeping your body active and more energized. Possibly shoo away boredom and help by keeping some of us more financially independent. Do not let age hold you back from trying on new hats.
I welcome any questions, sharing or comments you may have.
