Retirement is fun.
Retirement these days is drastically different from a few years ago when it simply means to stop working, laze around the house entire day while living off a retirement pension.
Now, everybody wants to retire in style. They want to get the most out of it, i.e., spend their days the way they want to, engage in sports, travel, fine-dine at least once a week and, for singles, give love another go, and many others.
Home alone, and happy!
“To leave or not to leave,” is a question a lot of seniors face as they grow older.
I live along and I thought too big for me. So three years ago I looked around for a retirement home to spend the rest of my days.
I found two, a few kilometers away from my home.
There is magic in retirement
Do you know that four million working Americans retire each year?
Yes, for them, the day has finally come to change clothes – from office to retirement.
On their last day of office, they all ask themselves the familiar question, “Now what?”
Do you often wake up in the morning with no motivation to get up? So you stay in bed a little longer until boredom grudgingly forces you to. That’s what happens when you have not set anything exciting and worthwhile to occupy your day.
I used to feel the same way right after my wife died. I was so down and did not want to get up until almost lunch time. Finally, I realized that I was slowly wasting my life away. Oh, I did not mind dying then. But not the way I was leading myself into.
