A Facebook group was asked to define Retirement in a few words.
As you browse the list, you will see many retirement definitions that you will agree with -- and others that you do not. That's clearly because we are all living different retirements - free to do what we choose to do and when we choose to do it.
I am posting this because if you are UNhappy about retirement, maybe you haven't quite considered all the freedoms you DO have.
Contemplate your retired life and be full of Gratitude every single day for all the little things you now have.
You are so blessed -- whether you acknowledge that or not.
Life is a choice. Happiness is a choice too.
