Retirement: A new happy life ahead
by Anna Yiouselli
I've been a nurse since i was nearly nineteen and got an early retirement at 59.
The first year went by just enjoying my freedom from work. No more rushing about,no more shifts no stressful responsibilities. Get up in the morning, make my cup of coffee, sit in my garden with my two beautiful dogs. The peace they give me is unbelievable.
Friends drop by any time, and the outings for lunch or dinner are numerous.
One dream that I had for years became real. A year ago, I learned spanish and computer and applied for voluntary work in Peru. I was accepted and worked in a girls orphanage for three months. The experience was tremendous.
Then traveled to a lot of interesting places
in Peru before coming back home.
Now I'm planning my next trip. Not sure where yet where but the places are endless and many people appreciate our help. Thank God I'm healthy and feel i still have a lot to offer and experience.
Coming from a small island though I don't usually find people eager to join me in my trips.
I would love to hear from people with similar interests and exchange ideas.
