All About Your Retirement

Enjoy your Wacky, Weird, and Wonderful Retirement Journey

(and I really really wish to make it enjoyable for you)

This is how it initially used to be for me when I retired…

I woke up to the roar of a haunting storm. It was still dark, pitch black to be exact.

Fierce rain struck the bedroom window. The howling wind rattled the glass panes, and light flashed from behind the curtains, soon followed by booming thunder rumblings.   

How I hated getting out of bed on similar mornings.

Then I remembered…

I realized the alarm clock wasn’t going to go off and I didn’t need to be out in that awful weather to go to work anymore.

Those days are gone, they’re history, for I’m now officially RETIRED.

I sighed out of relief and smiled, then, to the sounds of the storm outside, I went back to SLEEP again…

Retirement was something that I initially refused to dare dwell about as even the word itself was horrible.

I thought it meant growing old, being past it, and turning into a senile ‘has-been’.

I thought I wouldn’t survive more than a few months like this, but…                                            I couldn’t have been more wrong if I tried.

I’ll share with you my writings, and findings, about my wacky, weird, and wonderful journey to retirement.

You’ll discover what terrified me, what my struggles were, what caused my sleepless nights, and finally, how I coped and found peace of mind.

You’re more than welcome to enter my world…become a part of it, and hopefully find guidance for your very own private retirement journey.
