Best thing ever!!
by Shelly, Winnipeg
I retired at 50 from a horrible Government job.
Some people think it was foolish to walk away from a high paying job. Not me, how can you spend all of that money when you're dead, living in a care home or disabled from the unrelenting stress? I'd rather enjoy my good health and free time.
It took almost two years to sort out the sleep, get healthy and detox. There were many quiet days of rest and reflection. Also experimenting with hobbies, activities and making new friends.
Then the next chapter - LIVING! Its like a 7 day weekend. Woooo hooo! I feel like a carefree child on summer vacation again.
Those who say retirement is depressing or boring are doing it wrong. Get some help and support.
Enjoy these golden years. Relax, slow down, get healthier, get social and make the most of it.
