I'm almost five years into retirement and it's GREAT! I live in a beautiful place, family is near, I have a bunch of new friends and time to pursue long term interests. Good health, what more can I ask for?

Amayrani Franco said...

Above all, peaceful. I would like for my retirement to consist of reading all those books I keep putting off: and settling down somewhere by the beach, where my love can garden to her hearts content.

I want my retirement to have lots of fun -- mainly book reading, doing all of the things I put off when I was working -- to have the things I need and want, unlike I do now, since I want more money -- I mean, I've put off things, in order to save money for retirement so I have enough to live on -- so I'm hoping there is enough money to do all of the things I put off now.

I want to wake up when I want to wake up. I want to see the world on my own time. I want to hold my wife's hand as we take a stroll. A stroll through life at our own pace. No deadlines to meet, no emails to respond to... Just stroll...

Tomorrow, please. Or quitting time today. Yeah, that would be fine.

I want to have the time and energy to be with my grandchildren. I want to be able to go to camp without being in a rush. National parks,Italy, Spain France and England for architecture and museums. Coffee at my leisure. Walking my dog on the path I could see out my window at work. I always wanted to be one of those "walkers."
