I’ve about had it with this year. Let’s think about next spring. Let’s dream dreams and make plans. Heck, maybe the Canadian border will even be open.
I realize I’m getting well ahead of myself here, but I’m betting a lot of my followers are also, in one way or another, looking forward to putting 2020 behind them.
So … what are your plans for spring? Here’s mine!
Time is finite. The older I get, the more crystal clear this notion becomes. I am cautiously hopeful that 2021 might be a little better than this current year, but only time will tell.
Towards that end, I’m going to start creating a wish list of places I’d like to visit and things I want to do while I still have the time.
Being realistic, I admit that some of my “Bucket List” items aren’t likely to happen in the coming year. It might take longer, and some may not come to fruition at all – but seriously, if I don’t even TRY, I’ve got no one to blame but myself.
Funny, isn’t it? When you are young, you might have a 5-year plan, a 10-year plan and then a long-term plan … and you feel like you have all the time in the world.
Right this minute, I feel like I can optimistically work on a 1-year plan and maybe a 5-year plan if I’m lucky. But long-term? Well, “long-term” seems to take on a whole different meaning after you hit 70. Especially in the midst of a world-wide pandemic.
I have a new motto this year …
I have all winter to come up with a new plan. The goal is still to get behind the wheel of my RV and drive. Who knows where I’ll end up.
In the meantime, as I tweak both my Bucket List and daydreams of future travel, I’ll leave you with this last quote.
Tick tock. Tick tock.
