Retirement: Am I dead now? Is it all over? Nothing to do; no deadline to meet; no going into my second grade classroom? Am I done?
No, No, No.
Are we all old and useless now?
Again I scream: No, No, No.
Be as you are. Do what you do. The world is full of 'stuff'. Great 'stuff' to do, to see, to learn. In this fast-paced world we can slow down and wake up!
As I age I feel such an awakening in my soul. I have grown quieter as I watch my grown daughters grow even more as they go through their trials, and my 5 grandchildren become wise and wonderful. If you just stop and listen sometimes, you can watch God work.
As a retiree, you can do what you want: sleep, cook, watch a good movie, read a book. Life belongs to you now to make it the best one ever in these golden years.
