3 months till retirement, and I don't think I'm going to make it

Well, I am 1 month, 19 days and 12 hours away from my retirement at 66 YOA. I am finding that I do at times think I'm not going to make it.

We have planned to RV across the US and take as long as we want. If we want to stay an other few days, we can. It's all very exciting.

So why am I worrying about stuff that has never crossed my mind before?

Is it just the fact that instead of getting up five days a week at 4am; I don't have to do that any more? Is it that I'm not sure if I can break the habit of knowing how each day will start?

Generally I have more questions than answers and, like my first day of school, it will be a real learning experience.

When it comes down to walking out of work for the last time I will be sad and happy all at the same time.

3 months till retirement

You will make it and retirement is something new and exciting to anticipate! You already have a plan when you retire to travel across country in your RV, how exciting?!

It is another chapter in your life and new things to figure out and do.

Everything will be fine.

Retirement is scary at first. Getting up in the morning, knowing where you'll be that day. You did that all those years. But it sounds like you have your trip all planned out. I like that.

It's normal to feel a little lost at first. That'll pass. It gets better.

I have been retired for 5 years now. wow, I can't believe it.
Retirement is a state of mind...I have learned it is what you make it and I love it.

An opportunity to do things that you always wanted to but didn't because it probably did not pay enough to support your family or what ever...but now...go for it. opportunities abound..,
