Let go

It is such a lovely morning and yet my body is feeling it's age plus - I want to go out make the most of the mild weather and beautiful sunshine, but my body says curl up with a book. Sometimes we just have to let go, stop trying to control our lives. I shall sit indoors and look out at the garden, may be with my sketch book, may be not. Appreciate not having to go to work, appreciate being able to go with the flow and relax rather than making myself feel I ought to be out gardening or walking or something active. This is what I am learning to do... there will be another sunny day, let it go, it doesn't matter.

Hi Jill ... thanks for visiting my blog .... I think the Pumpkin Gala could well get bigger and better each year ... the grands thoroughly enjoy it. So nice to meet someone else from Bedfordiashire too. Please visit again x

Jill: let it go. I still have this dreaded cold thing hanging around and knew I should be doing more, but somehow just haven't. When all said and done, you have worked for this retirement - ENJOY IT!

I think we all need some time when we let go of the word "should" and replace it with "could" or "must" and replace it with "might". It's what retirement is all about isn't it?! Enjoy your day there will be plenty of time for "doing" later.

It's not an easy lesson to learn for many of us, retired or not. Hope you had a lovely day Jill and are feeling refreshed now.
