Brand New Year

Okay – today is the first day of a new year. What does that mean? A fresh start – a means to look at today as a new chapter in a life waiting to be written! When I think about it, today is a new day – new questions – questions wherein the answers will enable us to discover new things about ourselves.

Hopefully the changes created as a result of these questions will provide each and every one of us a year of enchantment and self-discovery.   The writer in me looks at today as a way to whittle out a quiet pause in the action (thinking back to the year 2014) enabling me to dream with pen in hand hoping that I may just find my muse and start writing again. After all, I once read that when you let yourself choose what feels right in the moment, you learn who you really are, how to recognize when you are changing, and why it’s so important to respect your values, at all costs.

So this will be a short post today as I am just glad 2014 is over. Tomorrow will be the second day of this brand new year and yet another day to smile, be happy, and content that we are still upright and taking nourishment.

Until next time!


About iglengel

Welcome to my blog: I retired in September of 1996 after twenty-five years as an Underwriting Manager (and one year with a smaller insurance company) and have written blog postings on the website prior to setting up this Word Press free site. Having retired almost twenty years ago I have experienced my own retirement transition. I survived and you will too. Oddly enough, now that I have more time, I am discovering various things about myself that I would not have imagined myself doing in retirement. Why does it take so long for, we as individuals, to stop and think about ME!? Join me as I share with you some of the shenanigans we have been up to since retiring. Retirement is and can be a whole lot of fun. Welcome to my site – remember – retirement is not the destination we are seeking – it is the journey! I encourage you to visit often, provide comments, ask questions and add your own insights. We are all on this journey together.
