I woke up Monday morning, the first working day of 2016 and didn’t have to get up and go. An unusual feeling for me still. With 10 months of retirement down, I have drifted into somewhat of a schedule that includes working out, pursuing hobbies, lots of reading, and consulting work.
Not being big on New Year resolutions, I haven’t made many as my resolve doesn’t seem to stick much beyond mid-January. In the past, I found energy in the idea of new beginnings at the first of the year and often spent time on setting my house, literally and figuratively, in order over the holiday break. I experienced that same energy again this year and have a great list of things to work on in 2016!
One thing I am doing is letting go of one consulting job that has not met my expectations as planned and picking up another one. Developing my consulting company became one HUGE opportunity to learn new things in 2015 and hopefully will continue in 2016. I find myself doing things and facing situations where I have no experience, and casting about for answers, guidance and resolve!
Speaking of new beginnings, we went to the Dead and Co show at Verizon Center back in November. We had a stellar time, one of the best shows of 2015.
