“Everything has been figured out, except how to live.”
Welcome to Re-Thinking Retirement. Here I share some of my thoughts and experiences as I try to figure out what retirement is all about.
It’s been a roller coaster of a journey! There’ve been peaks and troughs, passions and pre-occupations. Retiring from paid employment is the simple part – it’s living in retirement that’s the challenge.
I’ve realised that it’s one of the key defining moments of life – it just happens to come somewhat towards the end. For me, it was the ‘new ‘18’ – a chance to start over with the things that really interested me instead of doing just what showed up.
My trouble was, it took me quite a few years to figure out retirement, and I’ve had a number of pre-occupations along the way. You can learn more about these by visiting My Quest page.
