As human beings, we all have a tendency to become complacent. We settle into a particular way of doing things that is comfortable and routine. And nonthreatening. 

Complacency is easy; it does not require much innovation or risk. It does, however, threaten to diminish our spirit and zest for life. Settling for the “same old, same old” may cause us to miss out on special friendships, new opportunities, maybe even exciting adventures had we just taken a leap of faith in a new direction.

Reflect back on a time in your life when you made a positive change. Chances are this course of action left you excited, optimistic, and hopeful about your future. While change can be difficult, with the proper support and guidance, a new and more fulfilled life is within reach.

Nowhere is this support and guidance more important than when you’re contemplating a move to a retirement community.

Tip of the month

Not as interested in cooking so much anymore?

If you find yourself becoming complacent when it comes to cooking for yourself and others, consider donating your cookbooks, cookware, and baking dishes to the Goodwill or another charitable organization where others might benefit from your treasures.
