Share Your Retirement Story!

Tell me about your retirement... share your retired life and receive feedback from many others!

Share Your Story:

1) Write your story at this link. I will publish and readers can add their feedback. This has helped many retirees.

2)  Write to me privately here.

These are easy peasy ways to get help... and maybe, just maybe, you'll get the perfect feedback, at the perfect time, to push you forward into your future years!

There IS light at the end of the retirement tunnel where you CAN find fulfillment and joy in your later life! 

It's not about money either, though money obviously helps in dreaming possibilities. There is plenty you can do to be healthy, happy and engaged in life - without much - seriously.

Life can be rich with activity and friendships, even while you are aging... 

Retired Life - based on what we truly love in life - has got to make life just ROCK! 

My thought is that we live busy lives. We go through school, then we work and have families, then we retire.

BOOM! Now what?

Let me help you live an active, engaged lifestyle, even though you are aging and slowing down a bit. You can remain smart, witty and social. 

You can discover real purpose for your days while helping the world for the Greater Good.

How to Learn More:

This website accomodates three stages of retirement:

  • Retirement Transition - This stage of retirement can last anywhere up to five years (estimated). Some people retire with little down time at all... retirement suits them and they were prepared (both mentally and financially). Others struggle - we feel anxious, bored, don't know what to do all day so we do nothing, and sometimes fall into depression. It's not a good place to be...
  • Already Retired - You are retired, settled into your new lifestyle, maybe for many years now, and simply seek new friends, and new ideas on how to change your retired lifestyle! Join the private Retirement Community (above) to find new interests, chat with other retirees, and simply enjoy life while sharing life!

Here is a quick index of the topics on my site:

P.S. I retired in April 2010 after twenty-five years as a Retirement Manager (and 35+ years with my local government employer) and have worked on this website for the last six years. More about me here. As a THIRTY YEAR retirement enthusiast, I have experienced my own retirement transition. I survived and you will too. Oddly enough, I am learning more about the REAL "me" now, in retirement. Why did it take me all these years to stop and think about ME!?
