#1 Victory Lap Is All About Freedom
Who says the grass isn’t greener on the other side?
In Victory Lap you no longer need an alarm clock to get up at the same time every morning. Waking up to your body’s own clock is the way life was meant to be. Natural living just feels right, it’s natural after all.
When I’m enjoying my morning coffee watching the news I always smile when I hear the traffic report. Not having to make that brutal daily commute to the office during rush hour and wasting two hours of my life each day is one of life’s great pleasures let me tell you.
These days when working (if you refer to what I now do as work) I no longer wear the usual suit and tie but instead go with shorts, sandals and a t-shirt unless it’s a formal event where I will upgrade to a golf shirt. Work just seems so much enjoyable dressed this way and because of that I’m much more productive and happy.
You will love the freedom to control your own time and you can finally spend it pursuing what you really enjoy and care about. After all you are your own boss now at least until your wife gets home. Our goal at this point in our lives is to fill our time with adventures that will create wonderful memories for ourselves. We can choose to go on an epic bike ride and enjoy some of this country’s natural beauty like Gerry did or go on an awesome fishing trip with a good friend like Joe.
It really doesn’t matter what you do what matters is that you have the freedom to say to yourself “screw it” and just give it a try and see what happens. That is when the excitement returns and you start really living again.
