Life Transition: Moving on to Retirement
Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Retirement is like turning eighteen... you can't figure out whether you are young or old.

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.
