1 Month, 1 Week, 1 Day to Go to until my retirement. Which means leaving the 9 to 5 gig behind. It does not mean climbing in a basket and pulling the cover closed over my head.
I’m sort of keeping a low profile about it here at work. The first reaction I get is a suspicious look and “You’re too young” and then “what are you going to do?” Their tone of voice implies that I may curl up my toes and disappear under the house like the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz. Well I’m not as young as a I look. But, it’s sad that the most common conception of a person ready to retire (make a lifestyle change) is a withered, worn out person.
I’m ecstatic about changing my life while it is still possible to enjoy it. It is loads of fun to just let yourself dream about all the things you’d like to do – uncensored. Fantasy does not cost a dime. The planning and the funding comes later.
