My Financial Future!
For the last few days I’ve been thinking about topics I’d like to write about. I’ve thought about writing about the past, because I have some interesting stories: travel stories, people stories, even some funny stories.
But I was reluctant to engage those topics, and I wondered why. Finally it struck me that I don’t like living in the past. For one thing, my recollections are skewed, and secondly, it implies that the best of life is past.
Well, if I’m not going to write about the past, that leaves the present and future (or the pretend!) I’m opting for the future!
Not too long ago I shared this quote from Abraham Lincoln, "The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
What future do I want to write about? What would I like to see in my future?
A week ago I attended a one-hour retirement planning seminar, and that got me thinking about my financial future. So that’s what I’m going to blog about for a bit: starting today!
