After thinking about looking for another job in a rat race that I detested, with jobs I hated, and being at the whim, demands, and judgments of another unreasonable boss, I have decided to simply let all of that go.
I have realized that I felt horribly oppressed and suffocated by traditional office jobs. I was absolutely depleted, morally and energetically, by working full time in positions in which I did not fit.
And I have learned that you can’t get what you want or make room for something new until you get rid of what you don’t want, and let go of the old.
So I have decided to listen to my heart and my inner guidance. I have chosen to honor my soul, my inner voice, my desperate cries for liberation.
I now choose to retire and be at peace. It is time to not worry about making a living, and time to thoroughly enjoy my life. Time to let my spirit and soul soar. Time to let my heart sing and feel full again. Time to revel in life itself and celebrate my time here on earth. Time to be FREE.
I value happiness, openness, and being true to who I am. I value honest creative expression. I value freedom with no strings attached, except for those which I choose. I value being wholly who I am, in whatever form that takes, even if that keeps changing.
It is time to relax and breathe and see where the path will take me. Time to follow my passions and interests and yearnings. Time to dance in a sea of joy, peace, and fulfillment.
I hereby release old labels, old patterns, old jobs, old stuck places. I release old pigeon-holes and boxes where I never really fit. I release pretenses of fitting in where I never truly belonged. I take off my armor. I allow my inner being to shine, flow, and radiate in all its true and natural glory. I am finally, gloriously FREE.
I now excitedly move into the next phase of my life with passion and open arms. I am open, ready, willing, and present. Here I Am! Bring It On! I Am Here! I am ready. I am willing. I am present. I am here. I Am.
It feels so damn good to say that I am now OFFICIALLY RETIRED. What a thrill!!!
Life is so good. Life is magnificent, glorious, exciting! Life is always changing and always new. Life itself is alive. And I have so much to discover – a world of wonders and magic and beauty.
I celebrate and toast to Life Itself – I am honored and privileged to be part of you, to feel you flowing through me and around me, expressing yourself as me – and I open to you and welcome you in all your magnificence.
To Life, to freedom, to the entire world and beyond, to All That Is – I Am. Bring it on!
I am now retired. And life – I am all yours!
