What's YOUR Purpose In Retired Life?

by Leaking Ink

When I first retired 4 years ago, I said to myself, "What now? What is my purpose in life anyway?" Here's what came out from those thoughts, and I never looked back.

My Philosophy in life:

Just be.

My Purpose in life:

  • To create and nurture simplicity, order, love, relaxation, and a thankful spirit.
  • To travel the path that God shows me.
  • To live each day in keeping with my education, knowledge, abilities, and talents.
  • To live usefully.
  • To seek to make a difference in the lives of others through simple, quiet achievements and by sharing myself and my life experiences with them.
  • To pursue Truth, Insight, and Understanding.
  • To strive to continue to improve myself.

    My Mini Daily Intents:

  • Enjoy today's delicious moments.
  • Say "thank you" today.
  • Do good, feel good.
  • Do small favors today. Expect nothing in return.
  • Stay in touch with at least one family member or friend today.
  • Nurture something: person, animal, or plant.
