Are we at March already? I’m trying to figure out how January and February passed by so fast. Some news! Today is my first day of retirement from my 26-year executive position. I plan to still do some work in that industry as a contractor, I think. Or maybe not. I’m trying to figure out what I exactly want to do now. I’m not very retired. I have a couple of businesses, as well as a ton of hobbies, charities and women’s groups that I participate in locally.

What you can plan is too small for you to live.” – David Whyte[/pullquote]
But just waking up this morning and savoring all the possibilities of my life was pretty intoxicating. Well, then I need to go to Ash Wednesday services and ground things back up.
