Because I’m Happy

Clap along if you know what happiness is to you

Today is a very minor anniversary. Two weeks ago I retired. Even though two weeks is just a blip in life’s timeline, it is worth noting. I took a life altering step and I have no regrets. In fact, I have learned a couple of things.

I no longer know or care what day it is. I don’t have to pack all my errands into a Saturday or take leave for a medical appointment. I can stroll the neighborhood taking pictures of flowers without feeling like I should be doing something constructive. I can spend an afternoon studying an atlas to plot my upcoming drive to Minnesota.

Several weeks ago, one of my co-workers introduced me to a song I adopted as my retirement anthem. Every time I hear it, it validates my decision. Take a listen. If you can listen without wanting to clap along, your soul is missing a beat.
