Life Transition: Moving on to Retirement

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Retirement
“I actually think the whole concept of retirement is a bit stupid. There is this strange thing that just because chronologically on a Friday night you have reached a certain age… with all that experience, how can it be that on a Monday morning, you are useless?” ~ Stuart Rose
Retirement is like turning eighteen... you can't figure out whether you are young or old.
“You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.” ~ C.S.Lewis
Retirement is of course a whole new phase of your life. It can mean you finally have the chance to do things that you always wanted, especially if you've been working for years at a job far removed from your true talents and life purpose. retirement can be: volunteering, fun, freedom, challenges, working less, hobbies, sun, travel, friendship, family and even a new business.
Retirement
“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

“Retirement has been a discovery of beauty for me. I never had the time before to notice the beauty of my grandkids, my wife, the tree outside my very own front door. And the beauty of time itself.” ~ Hartman Jule

“The concept of freedom is never truly realized until one settles into retirement mode.” ~ A. Major
Retirement is the start of life's golden phase... Give your childhood dreams on final chase!

And yet looking back, it was the defining moment not only of my career, but of my personal development as well. The fact is, I am now so enamored of blazing my own trail that I could never go back - I am hopelessly, incurably, unemployable. Continues...
