May Day has a whole new meaning to me this year. A year from my target ‘retirement’ date. I say ‘retirement’ because I realize that it may not be a typical retirement. Does anyone have those anymore? I may very well be doing some other sort of job. But the point is, that I intend for it to be on my own terms… Of my own passion.

The milestone gives me a fresh perspective on what’s happening today. And what I want to accomplish in the next twelve months. It’s generated an excitement in me for not only my next adventure, but also for this one.

And I’m ok that 5/1 could possibly turn into 6/1, 7/1, or even 8/1 depending on the circumstances. Even the planner in me can comes to terms with that. It’s a milestone none the less.
