There is a time to plow ahead and overcome the circumstances. There is also a time to reassess the situation and make adjustments for reality. For example, I had planned to continue to work until age 66 because I was good at my job, my employer appreciated me, and the pay was great. However, my neuromuscular condition reached a point that the struggle was simply overwhelming. I tried to soldier on but made myself sick. So, I retired. And you know what, the world didn't end. Our paid for house and debt free living habit of many years made it financially quite doable.
Today I made another accommodation to life. My life long hobby has been quilting--hand piecing the blocks and then hand quilting the quilt. Today, I realized that I can still quilt by piecing on the sewing machine and quilting only in straight lines. And you know what, that is fine with me. I can still get the pleasure of putting colors together in a pleasing pattern and still enjoy hand quilting and that is what I enjoy anyway.
