I’m Retired Now…….What’s Next?
This should have happened a long time ago…..
We’re taught that we must work our way right to the threshold of life. Trading our minutes in to serve someone for money so we can buy junk and get in debt! I think that’s wrong.
There’s a sect of this younger generation that seems to have it right, personally I picked up on this and find it enlightening, exciting, and actually better than the old way.
The focus isn’t on getting rich, but rather earning enough, keeping one’s self as debt free as possible, and see the world!
I’m retired now……what’s next?
So, my retirement time is gonna be doing that and a lot of writing…..I have a few book ideas to work on, I have this blog and will be doing 2 more….one is up and running from way back whenever but I haven’t used the website for blogging yet…. www.johngaudetmusic.com and the other will be more intimately involved with my tropical travels and see where it takes me.
Debt is not our friend. Debt is what someone else provides us to make money so they don’t have to work…..usury.
So, I’ve stripped myself almost totally of debt…..once the sale of my house closes (September 13th), I’ll pay off what little debt I have and that will provide me the freedom to take off.
First stop will be the Caribbean coast of Mexico. Puerto Morelos or Playa del Carmen, maybe Tulum. From there I’ll blaze a path thru Central America, South America……then places beyond…. I wish I had the knowledge or foresight to have done this and still be doing it instead of tying myself down to a job, business and house.
Now, my focus is on what I want to do. I want to write my blogs…..I want to write my books…..I want to write my songs. I want to see more than my backyard, I want to experience different cuisines first bites, cultures first hand, languages….I have more to do than service to the man!!
No, I’m not rich and I don’t need to be rich to do the things that I want to do. Will I get rich……sweetie, that’s not my focus. My focus is on having fun doing the things that I want to do.
For mainstream life in America it works this way, “the more you make, the more you spend and the more the owe”.
So, I’m retired now….. what’s next? Fun!
I hope that whoever reads this gets this simple message……you’ll have fun if you do.
Peace, Love, and Beaches,
p.s. I’ll be taking some time to redesign this website too!!!
