The Retirement Years - Life at and After 60 - the Golden Years
The Golden Years
Life After 60 - The Retirement Years
Life does not end at any age if the thinking is young, be it 60, 80 or 100. It is the mindset that one has, at any age, that reflects the age (not physical) of a person. So why should life end after 60? The retirement years are the golden years, in one's life. After 60, life changes do occur especially if one has retired. The physical body may retire but the mind has not retired. In fact, the mind never does.
Though physical ageing is a fact, mental ageing is well within our control and for those who think young, life does not end at any age. Aspirations, wishes, wants, do not end or even decrease with age. In fact, most of these increase.
Think about it.
Doing What I Always Dreamed Of
On a personal note, I have always admired writers and wished to write on a public platform someday, when time and opportunity permitted.
I have just turned 60 and have found hub pages which I think is the platform I was looking for. I look forward to happy hubbing here.
Life, in fact, begins after 60 and one must pursue it with as much zeal and zest, as when younger.
So guys, get working now, to enjoy The Retirement Years - the golden years.
Indulge In Your Hobby
Thinking Back And Moving On
All of us have worked, the major part of our life, raising a family and catering to their needs, making a career for ourselves and doing other things to survive and make our retirement as worry-free as we could. Now is the time to enjoy, the retirement years.
At this age, when one is relieved somewhat of the responsibilities of being a parent when one's children are either married or have settled in their jobs, one has more time for oneself.
At 60, most of us who were doing a job, have retired and those in business can afford to take out more time for themselves, as the children have grown up now, and are probably playing a major part in the family business.
Now is the time for personal reflection and doing things one wanted to do when younger, but could not, due to preoccupations with family responsibilities and career. Things like pursuing a hobby, doing social service, learning a new art or craft, visiting places one wanted to but never had the time to. So many other things can be done now with more free time at hand. The retirement years are our own years - The Golden Years.
Make the most of it friends!
