New Chapter - Deja vu

Saturday, May 26, 2018

this has more to do with state of mind than physical health or activity, but in less than two months, I'll be retired from the company I've worked for 37 years. I know it's time, although I'm only 58. It's time to do something else.

And while all these webinars and I participate in point out that there are much more opportunities for retirees these days than ever before, I always question, what's next for me? But today, at our Memorial Day parade, just talking to friends I realized that there are others out there that I can reach out to in the not-for profit sector, that may be able to help.

Always remember folks, you're not alone. I remember when my father had a stroke, and I felt the world caving in on me, that people shared their experiences with me, and I realized that I wasn't alone.

Deja vu.

    emoticon You are never alone, my friend. If we just reach out, we will find that others were reaching out for us too. Shared interests and common goals, shared experiences, and shared opinions bring us all closer together. It has been a pleasure being a ROWDY REBEL with you and after my hiatus (for my back) I will see you in the fall, God willing. I will be checking out everyone's progress during the Summer. SUCCEED at all you do! emoticon

    You are so right - You are not alone - My husband will retire from Ford Motor Company when he is 54 years old ( 8 more years ) - Planning is key and it sounds like you have some additional resources to look into as well. - Good luck to you!

    I think when you retire earlier you live longer.
