I once had a client retire who was going on vacation to celebrate with several friends. I asked how he pulled that off because you don’t often hear about people doing that. He replied that he’d been going on vacations for years with other couple friends. He said the secret people don’t realize is that you don’t just retire and a flip is switched where you start doing all this fun stuff. You just get to do more of what you already love. So find things you like and appreciate what you have today because those things will be who you are tomorrow.

I do mission trips to Haiti. Being confronted with abject poverty tends to reorient ones outlook. Get out and volunteer with an org that serves the underprivileged. I'm certain it will shift your perspective.

I got laid off in January and have been trying to find a new job since. I keep making it to the phone interview and sometimes a second interview, but always get ghosted. It’s so disheartening.

I have too much experience for an internship, and I have too little to be the top choice for copywriter roles. I know I’m a good writer, I know what I’m capable of, but it’s so exhausting trying to convince people. They always like my book but it’s never enough to get the gig. What can I do?

One of my exes just started chatting back with me. She brought up times from the past and that she misses me etc. She keeps telling me to not reply at certain times when her family or husband is around

All of a sudden she's saying that our conversations are from the past, that she doesn't like telling me not to reply and that she doesn't want to cheat her husband. I gave her no idea of rekindling anything and infact was very clear about nothing happening btw us. Is this cheating? I'm confused
