After some reminiscing during my trip back in time, I came to realize that my retirement years were just as happy but in entirely different ways.
We haven't talked about money yet.
I have read many articles where financial advisors are saying that to live out your retirement years and not run out of money you need to sock away a couple of million dollars prior to retirement. WOW! I don't think I made a couple of million dollars in my entire working life.
I will admit, you need some money to live comfortably but a couple of million dollars? A wise person once said, "Money will not buy happiness, but it will let you be unhappy in nice places". We all have different lifestyles and, therefore, do not have the same monetary needs. Some of us choose to live very frugally and others try to spend their way to happiness. Most of us are some where in-between.
Are you among the happy retirees who are enjoying life to the fullest or are you one of the unhappy retirees who continues to focus on what you gave up rather than what you may be gaining? Retirement should and could be the best part of your life.
Maybe you always wanted to start a business - go for it!
Maybe you had dreamed of traveling - go for it!
Maybe you wanted to become a volunteer and put your skills and talents to work helping people - go for it!
Maybe you would like a part-time job to supplement your income - go for it!
There is no right or wrong way to manage retirement. We all have to find what works for us.
Remember the Frank Sinatra song "I did it My Way"? Now is your golden opportunity to say the same thing. Go for it!
