Just want to make a decision... take the big leap to retirement?
I'm turning 60 next month and I've been an elementary teacher for 22 years (after working in another career for 20 years).
Inherited enough from my father to be in a financial position to retire. Yes, I do feel the time has come to at least work part time, but I have done nothing but work since I was 16.
I have no idea what I'll do when I retire. I have no "passions". School has been my passion for the last 22 years... but now that spark is pretty much gone.
Do most people just take the big leap? Better to work part time for a few years and ease into it? My husband is a few years younger and will likely work for another 6-7 years, so we won't be taking lots of long trips yet.
