My Bubble: I've Not Outlived My Usefulness Yet!

It's a great feeling to know that I've not outlived my usefulness yet ... it's been 9 months since I've opted to free myself from the workforce but there's still so many avenues for me to contribute and earn a keep by my own rules.

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; 
the fun is having lots to do and not doing it.

~ Mary Wilson Little ~

Escaping the rat race, it has turned out to be an eye-opening journey so far ... revamping my life, my ways and in particular, Myself! It's a different way of life, a different ball game ... better yet, a slow cruise I would say and I must never allow it to overwhelmed me, else I shall languish into reclusion or worst, extinction.

Everyone dreams to leave the rat race at the soonest possible opportunity but one must be mindful that leaving the workforce at a ripe retirement age is never the same as an early retirement when we're still a robust force to contribute to society. Yet, one must still dare dream and plan well for it ... b'coz with all the speed-bumps aside, retirement is fun!

Just alittle rambling on the side while on my coffee-break ...

Let's Be Thankful!

When my dad retired, I used to be amused by how he could build a buzy schedule of things he had to do out of nothing. But he had the right idea.

Happy Monday, Wenny!

Hahaha!!! Rick, it's true ya'know? Somehow when we are no more pressured by the exigencies of worklife, we do things alot lot more leisurely that we take longer to complete.
