Procrastination, overthinking, whatever you want to call it, is what I typically do. I recognize I overthink, in fact, I overthink about overthinking.
It’s time to make a decision! I have decided that I will stay where I am and will visit that decision on an annual basis. So, I am calling this place “Home”. It is where I will live now and for the foreseeable future. But, I can’t discount the possibility that I will discover the perfect place that will change everything. Continuing to live here is not a lack of action. In some ways, it is the epitome of action. It took a lot of thought and hard work to make this decision. Sometimes, it is just hard for me to admit that I got it right the first time. That’s part of overthinking too, I guess.
Over the past few months I have been finding ways to ameliorate the problems I think I have here in my present retirement community. Is it perfect? Of course, not but I am becoming a little happier here as each day passes.
The problems with the dining situation, which were a major part of my decision to look elsewhere, has at least partially been resolved. I have been working with the dining room manager and chef to make is easier for me to comfortably get my meals. I still want at least one other option for dining besides the sit down social-hour version but, that will wait on that for now. I hope that, sometime in the future when all this pandemic stuff is behind us and the dining room staffing problem is a thing of the past, to see a second option more compatible to my Aspie needs.
I have come to realize that most of my other life challenges have nothing to do with “where” I live. They are mainly things I have lived with for most of my life, or at least since my wife passed almost a year ago. I will continue to work on them individually to make my search for happiness a successful journey. It’s not over until it is over.
Now that all this drama is settled, I hope to get back to doing a more normal “My View Of The World” posts instead of “My View Of My World”. I hope I haven’t driven off too many of you who visit my blog regularly. I know all this stuff of the last few months has been pretty personal in nature, and I expect you are as tired of it as I am. So, starting tomorrow, you will hear more from me, instead of about me. I got a huge queue of ideas lying in my Evernote app RJC folder to talk about. I am also starting out on a couple of creativity projects that I think you will enjoy. And this certainly won’t be the end of the RetComLife series as that is “lessons learned” for many of us. I suspect RetComLife will continue as long as I do. 🤪
I would welcome anything you have to say about where we might go from here…
