The theme of this week’s article is supposed to be titled: Write Your Own Story. It’s not. In fact, it’s not about anything.
My wife, Edie and I are at the beach on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and will be here all week. The concept of Writing Your Own Story for the rest of your life, both physically and otherwise is too important to write as a “quicky” from the beach.
It seems to be mostly retired people who are here at the beach after Labor Day. It’s an ideal time to come — still warm and not very many kids. It’s interesting to watch some older couples walk down the beach like they owned it, while other older couples look like they could barely walk from their room to the beach — but would be well cushioned if they fell down.
While I hesitate to put “writing the rest of our story” off for a week, it is better to do that than write junk just to get it published on time. All too often, as we get older we tend to let others dictate our choices and it is extremely important to our futures that we don’t let other people write the story of the rest of our life.
Next week will be the post about Writing Your Own Story for your Senior Years.
Thanks for indulging me.
