When we approach retirement how prepared are we?
Do we or should we retire?What does the word 'retirement' bring to mind - 'an end of an era,
to go away, depart, rest, to go to bed, give up one's occupation so as
to live at leisure on one's income, savings, or pension, to fall back,
to withdraw from competition'. All very grim! The word 'tire' means 'to become weak, lose interest, become
impatient, weary'. Add 're' and it appears that we are doing it
all over again. BUT WAIT!'Tire' also means 'to adorn', 'to attire'. - Add 're' as in 're-tire' and now we've got it!
We can get rid of the facade that society forced on us - ideal
employee, ideal boss, ideal wife, ideal husband, ideal parent, pillar
of society. We can peel off the cloak we have been wearing.
We can 're-adorn' our lives, put on a new attire. It is the
beginning of FREEDOM. We can now do the things we wished we could have done when we were
younger. Then we were brainwashed into thinking of employment,
work, responsibility. Guess what? We can remove those words from our vocabulary and
replace them with choice, new pathways, adventure into the exciting
unknown. If you are thinking, "But I haven't got the energy I had when I
was young" Click on to 'Wellness & Health'. It's
not too late to reverse the clock!Wow! We can awaken the child
within us and look on the world with fresh eyes knowing that we have
all the wisdom that we have absorbed to guide us. And, better still, if we have children, grandchildren, relatives, friends or neighbours, now we can shock them with no apology.
