let it wait

"we must be willing to let go of the life we have planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us."

i chanced into this quote by e.m. forster today, the day after i let go the life i had known for 36 years and stepped into the life that is waiting for me.

today is the day after the day my retired life started.

it looks good,
having nothing to do,
except play with grandchildren a bit,
read a bit,
go for long walks morning and evening...

in this unfurling silence something is waiting.

let it wait.

Enjoy the luxury of not having to do anything,sit and think anything you feel like,or don't think about anything at all .for me rainy days and lazy evenings are the best time for being super lazy:).enjoy:):):)

Hi Venu Uncle. Many congratulations for entering this new phase of life. I have seen my father enjoying the time. Though I haven't stayed much with him after his retirement, still I know he's mentally a free man. But I think it will be a test for your wife :-)

Enjoy your time.
