Change. It is inevitable and we must deal with it.
We set out as young adults uncertain as to what we want to do or who we want to be. Some people decide fairly quickly. Others, like me, go through life asking what they want to be when they grow up.
I am now 69 years of age and have been having a wonderful life. Sure there have been ups and downs; but, overall, wonderful. Some find a passion to pursue. For years, I searched and searched, trying to find my passion. I have done far more things in career and recreation than most. I eventually found it; my passion is trying everything. I am curious about most things and aim to have many experiences. I will pursue this passion till my very last breath. How exciting !
Part of living life’s adventure to the fullest is not getting stuck in a rut. When you tire of something, move on. I know, it is easier to say than do, especially when you have responsibilities such as raising a family. But, do your best. I have never always had the ideal; but, over the long term, I meandered in a desired (Although I did not always know at the time it was desired) direction. There were periodic roadblocks and detours. But, always I overcame them or simply moved around and continued. The key is to not hold onto the pain or disappointment.
www.andrehugosplace.com was established to communicate with my friends, new, old and those who I haven’t met yet, that as we move toward or through retirement that there is more than watching television, waiting to grow old.
I studied about websites and blogging and got caught up in a rush that I did not want. Most people put up websites and blogs with the aim / hope of making money, so all the guidelines lead to this. Money is nice; but, it is not my primary motivation and I don’t want the pressures of following in the paths of all those “experts”. As a result, I became dissatisfied with my own efforts. It was not where I wanted to be. For almost a year, I have been ruminating over what I want and where I want to go via the web. In the meantime, I have continued to travel, take photos and work on becoming a better guitar player, etc.
My blog posts and articles will not be as regular as before. They will be at my pleasure and on a wider variety of topics that interest me and, hopefully, you. Please share your thoughts as we live life's adventure together.
