Just Quit Already: Day By Day Through Year One Of Retirement.
Day 107, Thu Oct 15: I zipped down to the Renton Driver License office to renew my license, a task I need to take care of before my birthday in a month. It is only 15 minutes south, pretty near Bright & Shine where I dried my wet laundry a few days ago. I knew the location because this is where Elena took her driver’s test when she first got her license.
I went at 9:30 just because that’s when I got around to it and it was, unwittingly, good timing. People were at all the windows but I was the only person waiting in a chair so my number got called right away. The license woman was real friendly so we chatted while she input my info and here is what I now know about her: she works Tuesday-Saturday; her husband works two jobs, random on-call during the day and then regular hours at night; her four-year-old daughter is in day-care and the $1000 a month is killing their budget but is a good investment for the benefits it provides the kid. What she knows about me is my age, my address and that I’m an organ donor. She had a neck tattoo just barely peeking up past her collar and I was curious what it was but I thought it was too early in our relationship to ask. So I keep things cordial but professional. I pass the vision test (three questions), get a frightening photo taken (they make you take off your glasses now!), pay $54, and I’m out of there in less than half an hour. I give my new best friend a jaunty wave as I depart. By the time I walked out the door, almost half of the chairs were occupied. Score! . . . .

The energy is RIDICULOUSLY strong today for letting everything DISSIPATE except the pithy truth of your nature, and what you plan to do with it. Too many framing metaphors to list! Enjoy this page from my journal this morning as Mercury conjuncts Venus retrograde at ♎ 13. The mental trick of the day is to empty out completely, detach from all possessions, & then really hold everything around you close in its perfection as is. Focus on the candle 🕯️burning in a house without walls. Time to Dharma. Plan for next life. #descartes#wittgenstein#whiteseeds#venusretrograde#journaling#journalpoems#yogaworksheet#takingforms
Your mindful action step, focus.
There is a plan and purpose for your life, you were given the dream, idea, and goal for a reason. It is your job to stay focused and make it a habit.
It is important to release the physical, emotional, and spiritual clutter so you can have a focused mind to accomplish greatness. Before you make a decision, think of your aligned purpose and goals.
Action Step: Focus on a task for 30-45 minutes with no distractions. Check in with your why and purpose before you make a decision.
Release any distractions that will take you away from your purpose •
#Affirmation: I am committed to staying present and focused.

If you follow @msrachelhollis one of her daily practices is to journal daily on gratitude, dreams and goals. During these last 90 days I am incorporating this practice and so far I am loving it. Here's what you do...
1. Get a notebook or journal (does not have to be fancy unless that's how ya roll)
2. Write daily (we're creating a habit here)
3. Write 5 things your grateful for
4. Write 10 dreams but wrote them as though they are already true. So one of mine is My daughter and I connect, communicate and enjoy time together.
5. Write 1 goal you are focusing on right now...mine is to connect with my daughter daily by telling her 5 positive affirmations (or more) each day.
It took me about 15 minutes to write this today and by writing it down its present on my mind which allows me to be more intentional with my time.
