It took me some patience to capture a photo of this cute little hummingbird. I sat down in the backyard and decided I would have to be patient, hoping one of these little guys would come by for a snack. Retirement is kind of like that for me, I am having to exercise patience as I anticipate the day I am able to say goodbye to my full-time, day job.
According to the “Happiness Advantage” by Shawn Achor, one of the keys to happiness is finding something to look forward to. When I have a few spare minutes I like to take out my journal and think through what retirement will look like for me. Anticipation is a powerful tool. Yoga in a screened in patio on the lake, daily walks with my pups, taking part in new art classes, so many options to consider. I use anticipation as a tool to exercise patience as I work toward my goals. Give it a whirl.
