Today, I awoke to a new beginning. On this first day of my sixty-second year on this tiny blue planet within a vast universe, I sense my life is restarting.

Although I have been pursuing living a more purposeful life over the last couple of years, the soul and energy-robbing responsibilities of a job within corporate America is the obstacle to the good life. And if I may quote Marcus Aurelius,

“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”

Or, the Obstacle is the Way!

So, on this day, I shall finalize and submit my letter of retirement and devote full attention to beginning the next chapter of life.
