We do it three times a day, so it might as well be fabulous, fantastic, delicious, delightful. Even if we’re watching our weight. Especially if we’re watching our weight.
Retirement isn’t about endings. It’s about moving forward and embracing new possibilities.
Think of your post-working years in terms of rebalancing, reimagining and even reinventing rather than just retiring. Retirement is an opportunity to create a life that truly reflects who you are.
Recently, a reader of my Millionaire series commented that perhaps thinking like a millionaire isn’t something to be aspired to because “What’s so good about being acquisitive, status oriented and power hungry?”
One topic that we all have on our minds as we enter our 60s is how to successfully transition to retirement.
Do you have a checklist in your mind that ticks off what counts? I do. It’s a proverbial one.
Let’s see, I get a point for working long hours, another point for making money, a point for having a day when I did not overeat and did my exercises. I get points for visiting a sick person, but not as many as I do when I get a new job contract, especially one that affords status.

You stretch, throw on a robe and make your way to you balcony. Moments later, your husband returns with two cappuccinos and a carafe of fresh orange juice.
When you’re a year or two away from retirement, or from your kids graduating and moving on with their lives, you start fantasizing about how wonderful it’s going to be to have lots of free time to do whatever you want to do.
When you reach a certain age in life, retirement becomes an unavoidable topic. And when it comes to retirement, there’s a lot to consider – retirement activities, retirement companions and even retirement homes.
