Last week, I met with a financial advisor who reminded me of a Very Important Birthday I’ll be celebrating in 2018.…I’ll be turning 59 1/2 this year! I don’t think I’ve observed a “half” birthday since my age was in single digits, but this important day will really be the day to start putting the final plans in place for our retirement.
So, finances are going to be a main “thing” for me this year. Earlier today, I watched an interesting TEDx talk about a woman who went for an entire year only spending on essentials. Nice in theory, but I already have commitments to some non-essential “indulgences” in 2018. Still, it got me to thinking about refocusing this blog a bit for the year ahead. Here’s my resolution:
In 2018, I will write at least one post per month where all the listed activities are FREE. BOOM!
I’ve got several jotted down for January – and will do an activities post within the next day or two – but honestly, in the process of doing research I just found out about a free talk at the public library that starts in less than two hours. Gotta run!
p.s. In the Chinese Zodiac Calendar, 2018 is the Year of the Earth Dog. It promises to be a good financial year, but people of all zodiac signs are cautioned that it will also be a stressful year and everyone should be mindful of their health.
