Who will you be in the next chapter of your life? What will you be doing?
The past few weeks have been full of “What’s next?” conversations. There has been an abundance of talk about the economy and politics, and the impact on people’s lives. What I’ve noticed is how people are taking a good, hard look at their lives and asking the question, “What’s next…for me?”.
Perhaps the start of a new year further stimulated this type of thinking, though it is my belief that it goes much deeper than that. It isn’t only economics and politics causing this type of reflection. What I’ve observed is that people are expressing a desire to live and work with a deeper level of integrity and purpose. For some this means looking at beginning an entirely new chapter in their lives by pursuing a new career, retirement or semi-retirement, moving to a home that meets current and future needs (right-sized, less=more), new commitments to their community or exploring spiritual yearnings. For others, it is a time to clarify and commit new energy to completing a chapter in their life, a time to reflect and tie up loose ends–before moving forward.
These conversations aren’t confined to the over-50 population. Since the beginning of the year, I have been a part of or overheard “what’s next” topics being discussed by people from ages 3 to 93. Yes, it’s true–80 to 90+ year-olds DO make plans for the future. And so do their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
So, if you are asking yourself “what’s next?”, I invite you to join the conversation and consider the following questions:
- What chapter of life are you in now?
- As you are writing your story, what is your outline, your plan for this chapter? The next?
- What does “happily ever after…” look like to YOU?
- What actions do you need to take now to be LIVING, or moving toward, your “happily ever after…”?
