What to do with this life?

I read this book over the weekend.  It's not new and I am pretty sure my friend Audra mentioned it to me years ago.  A week ago, Chris Guillebeau came up in conversation and I looked him up.  I quickly decided to read this book.

I highly recommend it.  I have lived a life so far that I feel has a lot of "change the world" and "purpose".  I have been a teacher.  For the first time in a long time, I am no longer teaching.  I loved teaching and it was a passion of mine.  It did feel like it left behind a legacy.  A legacy of care and love to my students and their families.  Now I am not teaching.  Who am I without teaching?  Honestly, it's a question I am struggling with.

I have heard of people who write down goals and plans.  I have never understood the merit of it, until reading his book.  I am thinking through the things that I want to continue and perhaps a few things need to fall away.
