In the next few months I plan on changing this blog and looking to introduce some other topics of interest. Perhaps I may change it all together and move on to another blog. This blog has been about my move into retirement. Since I am not yet retired I am still gainfully employed and currently on leave from my job. It's a pre-retirement of sorts, or at least that's what it feels like to me. You know something I think I can get use to this pace and lifestyle. My dogs certainly enjoy having me around all the time. However, I will be returning back to work soon.
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to actually be retired from the work force? People have asked me what I plan to do when I am retired. Why do I have to be doing anything? Isn't that what retirement is all about ...doing nothing? I beg to differ. Retirement is all about entering a new chapter in your life and having the opportunity to do things you have always wanted to do but did not have ample time. I don't think retirement is all that it's cracked up to be after all you still have the same responsibilities of looking after yourself and if you have pets, which as you know I do, them too. The only difference being you are not getting up in the morning to go in to work. This I consider a big bonus to getting up during my retirement days. I can organize my day however I wish and fulfill the necessities and then do nothing! LOL
I don't think I will ever do nothing as I do not see retirement as a doing nothing phase especially if I don't plan on dropping in my coffin before my time due to being bored. I have never been bored in my career nor my personal life so why should that change now. It's all up to me and how I look at life and what I plan on doing with it.
I am going to write more about this topic but for now I am going to have breakfast and tend to my domestic responsibilites which will always be with me.
