So I knew that retirement was going to be different and I wanted to be sure that I kept active.
But I had no idea that I’d be finding cannabis at this stage of my life.
That’s just how it worked out though. Unfortunately, my wife died about 5 years before we were able to realize our retirement dreams. We wanted to move to somewhere warm and sunny. That’s all we really needed after years of cold winters and damp summers. It took me a long time to recover from my wife’s death but I went ahead with our plans on retirement. It wasn’t easy to move away and start a new life solo. But losing my wife sort of slapped me in the face when it comes to just how short and fragile this life is. That made it so much easier for me to walk into the cannabis dispensary. I had always wanted to try recreational marijuana. I knew friends who enjoyed it responsibly all their adult lives. So I had gotten over the myths of my youth that led to me shunning invites to enjoy some sativa strains or maybe a bit of indica products. Since it’s legal where I live, I decided to give the local cannabis spot a try. I was welcomed in as though I was some sort of long lost uncle or something. That made me feel comfortable enough to let them know that I was a complete rookie when it came to marijuana. From that day forward, I’ve made a weekly trip to the local cannabis spot even if I don’t need anymore cannabis products. It’s a great place with great energy and I love that.
