Okay, right now, I AM THE FREAKIN’ TORTOISE! OK! I RULE as the tortoise right now because I am slow and steady and wanting stability! And dough, can’t forget the dough. 6 years ago
Really working hard on this one. I have a loose plan that I think if good.
Slowly I am able to see further into the future. 6 years ago
I am not confident that I can do this…or that I should. It sounds good though…
As I get older, I see the benefits of sticking to things, even unpleasant things.
I am constantly going from one thing to the next, changing direction…unstable should be my middle name.
But it’s all so that I can live my life to the fullest and do things that I enjoy. I know that life is not always fun but at least the unpleasant parts should be encountered while attempting to enjoy it.
I remember that I met a woman who had worked in the same small school for 40 years. She had one more year to retirement in Florida. Of course she had the house, husband, car and (grown) kids.
That’s great if that’s your thing. I’m not knocking stability.
So many people at my age, through hard work and tenacity are eons further than I am in my career, with home ownership, assets, etc.
Do I have regrets? 7 years ago
