As we go through life, the things that we excitedly wait for change. Fidelity Benefits should be calling any day now to announce that retirement is officially processed. It ain’t official until it’s official. Meanwhile…
Day one of week two. Retirement isn’t the right word to describe this situation. Retirement conjures images of rest and relaxation. What’s happening is anything but.
Six years of not quitting the day job have led to the official launch of being self-employed. While it’s painful to leave Disney after 30 years, it’s the right (gutsy) thing to do.

Refreshing isn’t it? When we stumble upon remarkably helpful call center support.
The special benefits advisors have been extraordinarily helpful. And with each call another layer of personal growth and understanding happens for the caller.
We travel down roads in life we’ve never been down before. We’ve probably seen the road (various life events) on a map, but never had the opportunity to drive on it.
Until the time comes. Usually unpredictably.
These life events are potentially scary because they are big ones.
But there’s always a chance our fear was unfounded.
Come to find out, the drive can be actually much better than we expect.
Guessing it’s because we reap what we sow.
All in preparation to sow even more.
To help more people, in better ways, more often.
