. "A curious person who use to the full his/her Power of Thought, lives for the moment and in the moment ... At the same time, present in the past and present in the future ... The mind is timeless ", *epiffanie* ....... I was always looking at the time, worked on schedule, met deadlines, constantly counting hours, days, weeks, months and years for nearly 50 years .. It's only now that I am 62 that I realised that the mind is timeless..This is the great reward of reaching this age .. I am very grateful for every moment I experience in my timeless state of the mind.... But of course it doesn't mean that I no longer look at time ... Have you ever experienced being in the timeless state of mind?.. Thanks for reading Bess

Every weekdays, I am just not aware of what time it is. I don't have such a concept of time during the weekdays that I have to take care of the company. That's why I don't see myself retiring at all. I just can't imagine not doing anything at all. Though I know someday I'd be taking it slow, but I know I would still be greatly involved in my business.

If you are used to work work work and keeping busy all the time.. it's hard to retire .. You will always find things to occupy your time ... especially if you own a business...

@epiffanie Right. I will always be full of ideas and that won't stop even when I'm old. I will become physically weak, but I won't allow my brain to be weak. I won't stop as I know the consequence. I've seen most people who retired and would suddenly become weak when they got nothing else to do.

I used to be a clock and calendar watcher but that has pretty much changed in the last year. I am retired and loving it. I am often surprised to find that I have no idea what day of the week it is.

I think I did. When I am with the people I love the most. It is when I am with them that I feel like there is no tomorrow and we can be together for longer period of time. I rarely see my other siblings and when we do, we tend to stop the clock and reminisce on our childhood days. And those moments are priceless that I wish we would be together all the time.

I've been retired for some years. With retirement the feeling for time changes. Life isn't dictated by watches and clocks anymore in the way it was before.

I don't even know how to start a day even if it's your last. Perhaps another long walk for me would suffice.
