Start living ...

Have we truly lived our lives to the fullest ?
Did we let our lives be on autopilot and going through the motions having each day the same as the one before it ?
Have we gone through another year without having done anything, achieving something or
Do we ever look back on our lives with regrets?

Try to start living your life to the fullest.

Take mini-retirements.
Don't leave the joy of retirement until you are too old to enjoy it. Do it now, while you're young. It makes working that much more worth it. Find ways to take a year off every few years. Save up, sell your home, your possessions, and travel. Live simply, but live, without having to work. Enjoy life, then go back to work and save up enough money to do it again in a couple of years.

It is like having a long vacation. It feels wonderful waking up in the morning and not having to go to the office and having to look at certain faces.
Having a cup of tea, reading newspapers and not having to worry about datelines, moving in and late nights built ups, and having to beg and please people. I feel free ...
