“Dig into life with wild roving abandon, opening your mind to the delicious possibilities that perplex the mind, entice the heart, and excite the spirit.” – Maximillian Degenerez

What Will I Be Doing …

Now with my retirement announced, this question is asked often these days … “What will I be doing?”

There was once a time in my life when I would have needed to know.  A time when I felt obligated to plan the future, arrange the games pieces, and predict the moves.  A time when I would not step out unless I had assurances of what might occur, and try my best to control the universe to ensure it happened.

But life, lessons, and awareness now cause a different approach to prevail.  I now embrace each day differently … seeing it as a great, unexplored frontier … the chance to mount a personal expedition into the known yet unknown.  Letting go of knowing what will be in order to see new possibilities … possibilities not even known yet … possibilities offering an even greater opportunity to live mindfully and with purpose in this new set of moments … wiser, kinder, more loving, and more sensitive to all that surrounds me.  No, I do not know what I will do, but I eagerly await finding out when it gets here. It is all such a new and interesting dance …
