Let the Countdown Begin

One year from today I plan to retire. Or I hope to retire. Or is it I want to retire. All of them. For me, retiring doesn’t mean not working, it means being able to do something different, something new and interesting, knowing I won’t starve. I will be 60 years of age when I retire but I won’t be old.

To honor my countdown to the rest of my life, I am launching a new blog, The New 3rs: Retire, Recharge, Reconnect. That will be my mantra through the next year and beyond. I hope you join me on my journey and share your stories. I plan to post information and links to help anyone who is trying to find their direction into and past retirement. Actually, creating and launching this blog is the first step in my road to retirement.

I am a bit surprised I am not jumping up and down with glee having made this decision. I have a stomach ache. Retiring isn’t as simple as turning in a form and walking away. I know myself too well. I need a road map. I need a destination or two in mind. So, I have already decided what I am giving myself as a retirement present: a trip to Namibia. What a better way to start than a reward.
