You are retiring. . So now what?
Many words may come to mind when contemplating retirement — prolonged vacation, monotony, emptiness, and loss of income or meaning in life. Retirement is a major life change. Leaving your life’s work can be both rewarding and frightening at the same time. It means leaving your work associates and friends, the structure of your days, and activities that provide meaning and purpose to your life. Work – what we do – defines at least a part of who we are.
The new retirement is something quite different; it can offer a lifestyle filled with healthy enrichment and satisfying relationships. It may include a new full– or part-time career in a field that has always interested you, running your own business, learning new skills, engaging in a hobby you never had time for or volunteering for an organization whose mission you believe in. Up to now, you have been making a living. Retirement is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new stage of life. It is the time to make a life — your new life. With so many choices, where does one start?
