Where can I find inspiration in my daily retired life?
Here is a little help:
I just ran across this Seven Ways to Cultivate Inspiration item in my inbox.
My favorites, at this point:
Given enough time to ruminate on paper or a screen, it never fails that some intriguing, interesting, or inciteful [and often, insightful] notion pops up.
#5: Surround yourself with the right people
In-person is better, but those ‘right people’ might well be online connections.
#6: Spend time in nature.
The change in environment usually pays off.
A sense of gratitude often sinks in.
And if you’re mindful enough, you may well see something you haven’t seen before.
Remember: Every day is a ‘snow day’.
Thanks to: https://twitter.com/WallingfordSign and my friend MC for steering me toward these folks.
And sticking with my ‘try new’, I’m now following these folks on Twitter. Remember: ‘new’ doesn’t have to mean life-changing.
Describe an ideal day of your next chapter.
Enrich your vision with details!
Cool tool for introspection; dynamic venue for civic expression.
I snapped this in the summer of 2017 in Mt. Vernon, WA.
Some of my favorites:
- Third column, sixth one down.
- Second column, last item.
- The top item in the first column…touching.
If you faced this wall with a piece of chalk, what would you add?
These neighbors who regularly adorn their ursine friend…are they retired?
Maybe, maybe not, but I like their style.
They have clearly adopted the ‘try new’ mentality.
Take the opportunity today to ‘clothe a bear’.
