Do What Makes You Feel Good

I often wonder what is happening to me when I get home at the end of a workday.  I know I need to clean the house, make dinner, and do odd jobs such as laundry and vacuuming.  I am not complaining, yet I seem to fall off my schedule and instead want to sit and watch TV (the news is always so exciting lately.) 

I am lucky, though.  I have had a chance to open a small business that will never make me wealthy, yet it gives me a chance to not fade off to nothing.  Many people retire and go home to sit on the porch.  These people are the ones that do not live very long. 

I had a small taste of that as I retired. Being around the house all day without a schedule to keep me busy led to some fogginess of the brain.  I started by not being able to say the word I wanted to use.  I just could not think of it.  The days of the week were slipping away.  I didn’t have to be anywhere on a particular day and did not feel like doing much.

When I realized what was going on, I set up a plan for a business.  Even though I am a one-man shop, I work in a coworking center with many bright and active people.  I find my words coming back, my energy level up, and my calendar is full and remembered.

I feel that I am like the old retired chief master sergeant I knew many years ago.  He had a small one-person electronics repair shop.  When he wanted to work, he worked.  When he desired to go fishing, he just hung a sign in the window and went.  He, and I, seem to have the best of both worlds.

Thank you for being with me today.  I hope to be with you again soon.
