Learn to Play an Instrument
Wouldn’t you like to play the guitar like Prince? You can impress all of your family and friends. The keyboard in your closet is tired of collecting dust. Beethoven is calling you from beyond. You can put on some John Coltrane, and you can play the saxophone along with him.
Start a Business
For some people, making money is what keeps them happy. Why should Bill Gates have all the cash? The restaurant you dreamed of owning can become a reality. That flower shop is just a storefront and rose petal away. The community is wondering when you’re going to build that indie movie theatre.
Help the Homeless
You are content with the money you’ve made over the years. There are people in your community who need your help. Giving to others brings you joy. It is time to make a change. A hot meal can be the difference between hope and despair. Providing the less fortunate with clothes, toiletries, food, and blankets can make happiness go up and crime go down.
Tackle Environmental Issues
Helping the environment is a passionate cause. From the ozone layer to the trash in the oceans, there is a lot of work to do. You can join a group that cleans the beaches. You can join a community that raises awareness about recycling. There is so much work that needs to be done. The Earth will surely appreciate your effort.
Learn to Draw
How cool would it be to put your mental pictures on paper? Drawing is a talent that most people wish they had. Your art can become so good that you will become immortalized. Drawing soothes the nerves. When you pick up that pencil, you will enter new dimensions.
Join a Sports Team
Why do the guys in the NBA, NFL, and MLB get to have all the fun? There are plenty of local teams you can join. After a game, you and your teammates can have a beer and share some war stories. Getting involved in sports is a fun way to stay in shape. If basketball, football, or baseball is too intense, you can enjoy golf, billiards, or bowling.
Learn to Cook
Good food equals good life. It’s time to put the frozen dinners to rest. You have all the time in the world now. Fire up the wok and put the vegetables and meats in the pan. Learn about the different spice blends. Take the time to bring your palate joy. When you are in conflict with others, you can resolve the issues with your new cooking skills.
Help the Youth in the Community
You already made it through the hard part of life. Why don’t you go out there and guide the lost ones trying to find the path? There are so many kids that need wisdom from positive people in the community. You never know; that kid you helped can grow up and be somebody.
Retirement is not the end of the world. This is the time to really enjoy your life. You know who you are and what you want. You have the resources to pursue your dream. Now, all you have to do is push it to the limit.
