Retired to Wild Life Photography

by Daniel

I was sales manager in software company. I visited all around the world.


During my 20 years of experience in my job, I could manage to accumulate sufficient money for rest of my life. Then I thought to take early retirement and enjoy my life with my family.

But the last day in my office was very emotional as I was there for almost 10 years. I was not in a position to say good bye to my friends as my heart was very heavy with emotion.

I had a passion for photography and I knew lots of foreign languages like Japanese, French. So I quit my job after the age of 45 and started wild life photography. I registered myself in a state traveling guide.

After retirement, I started enjoying my life more than my job life. I have sent my children to foreign countries for higher management studies. I bought a firm house in my village and started living there.

I enjoy my morning by doing some gardening job. Usually I got calls from different tourists, so I go with them to different place.

I enjoy my life fullest. I am planning to do some charity and try to literate the people. I am ready to contribute for any charitable organization.

But the feeling of leaving the and my last day of my job really touches me a lot. But life is like that, the change is obvious to get there.

Interesting choices.

I too found the last day of work more emotional than I expected. Partly that was because of unfinished business, but also unfinishable business.

It felt like I was leaving a piece of me even though I had not worked there long, I was leaving a career.
