After reading a discussion from MysD regarding retired people who just fade out of life, I felt that I should write a little about retirement. I am not an expert on anything, but have 8 years experience of enjoying retirement! The first thing to remember is that retirement is just another job. Seriously! We are no longer forced by a salary or paycheck to get up early in the morning, and look presentable for our clients or bosses, but if we just sit on our butts we will just die off. My first six months (I laugh about it now), I actually got up in the morning and made a daily agenda. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, beach, shopping and on and on and on. Then one day I decided not to go to the beach and nobody actually came to my home and gave me a “pink slip” (termination papers)! The only thing that is very important to a retired person (especially if you are single like me) is to go outside every day. Look at people doing whatever they are doing, grasp the colors of the world and occupy you mind with everything, old and new, that you see! This will keep your mind busy and probable keep you going for years! This is only my idea and not backed by any proof that I know about.
