I had some major site problems last night. Therefore, I was unable to spend my usual time on this post. I had planned to participate in the Money Advice for the Ages project being led by Madison from My Dollar Plan. Here are a couple of thoughts that I may elaborate in the future:
Don’t just retire because you can, retire because you want to.
Retirement is an opportunity to serve – family, humanity, God, and more.
Happy retirees still have goals in life. What are yours?
Frugal retirees have the opportunity to be philanthropic with their time.
Look for opportunities to give advice (especially financial) to loved ones in your life.
Remember your church in your estate plan.
Write down your thoughts about life – keep a journal.
As those of you in your 60′s look toward retirement, you may enjoy What’s your retirement story? a guest post at My Dollar Plan and be sure to check for great retirement advice from Ciaran at Chance Favors the Prepared Mind.
