Life after retirement is a balance. Some people retire with a full-blown plan, while others struggle to fill a blank canvas. With so many choices and so much freedom, finding a newfound passion can be a hard thing to do. Retirement is an opportunity to create a life that is reflective of whom you truly are. In retirement, you have the time to be present in a way that allows you to fully savor joy. Retirement is not a time to mourn the loss of the past. It is a time to celebrate the opportunities. There are unimaginable opportunities waiting for you. If you want to live an extraordinary life, it is imperative that you know who you truly are, and to do so you must explore.

Life, it is up to you, so how will you live it?

An Inspiration for Life

In retirement, the spirit of discovery can enrich oneself. If you are looking for inspiration in your life, all you have to do is look within. Be that person who is willing to take risks. Reinvent yourself and do unimaginable things. Go to places you never heard of before, and take time to discover what inspires you. Remember, your future is created by what you do today. Make every moment count, laugh out loud, be silly, follow your heart, and just breath. You might find that not only have you inspired yourself, but others around you.

Life is a great big canvas, now is the time to throw all the paint you can on it!

Be Your Own Inspiration

Instead of looking to others for inspiration, be the inspiration you are looking for. At any given moment, you can choose to be inspired. So, be whimsical, be funny, dance in the street, and go crazy, what ever it takes to be your own inspiration. For, you only have one life to live, so why not start living it. Retirement isn’t about finding yourself it is about creating yourself. It is never too late for a new beginning!
