As we get older we tend to realize that we don’t have all the time in the world like we might’ve used to believe when we were younger. When you’re young you tend to think that you won’t die, it almost seems like a myth. And if it doesn’t feel like that, you probably think it’s so far away that there’s no point in thinking about it now. This may have caused you to not do things you always wanted to. Like travel, chase your dream and anything else you might’ve dreamed of doing sometime in your life. But now you’re here, years have passed and one day you sit and think about where all the time has gone.
The years seemed to have gone so fast and somehow now you’re going into retirement. How did it go so fast? While there is nothing you can do to make time go back, there is a way to make sure that the rest of the life you have is well spent and that you get to do some of the things you didn’t get to do in the past. Now is your only chance to make the dreams you always had come true.
If you always wanted to travel but never seemed to get the chance to or you didn’t have the money now is your chance. Even though you may be thinking you don’t have the money to do that I would say that you should just go anyway. If you don’t have that much life left you should just do it because there will never be another chance like this. Just go, even if it’s just to another state or something or a beach somewhere travel as much as you can possibly. It will be worth it and you will be thinking and asking yourself how you could have never done this in the past because it is so new and amazing. Just do it.
Spending money on things you always wanted may have been something you never did since you always thought you didn’t need that and that you could always get it later when you had more money and could afford it. Well now is your chance to buy things for yourself that you wouldn’t usually buy. You might as well, you will never get to again.
Pick up that hobby that you always wanted to in the past, like painting or playing the piano. While it is harder to learn something new as you get older it is still possible. And since you have the time you might as well do it and try it and see if you like it. Just try to do the things you always wanted to .
