Retirement can be Exciting

Many people do many different things upon retirement.


There are so many of my friends that seek out study classes and learning experiences which can be the right thing for them.

After working 50 years, I decided very quickly this was going to be my fun thing and that I had enough learning in my head and my aim was do stuff I'd wanted to do for a long time but never had time.

I enrolled a seniors' exercise class that meets three mornings a week and is invigorating and fun to me, knowing how much it's doing for my self-esteem and looking better. I learned how to line dance and do that several days a week.

Then there is time to travel to far off lands that I've never had time for. Since retirement have visited Alaska, Ireland and then out west to Oregon and Seattle area several times.

Folks, whatever makes you happy, that is the thing you must do, not what somebody tells you to do or they're doing.

A New Chapter
by: Chaleena

I love retirement! It is so wonderful to be able to go to the gym, take classes, visit grandkids, travel and make new friends. I had no idea what this chapter would be like. I could not imagine the freedom! It is like being reborn! I wish this for everyone who has put in their time.

Hear hear!

Absolutely agree with you as long as your doing something you enjoy. Definitely not vegging out in front of the television!
