Retirement is seen by many as a time to stop, and relax and enjoy life. This, I believe is a recipe for death of the spirit. Struggle, striving, commitment, persistence and even anxiety are all part of a meaningful life. If you organise your life to eradicate these elements I believe, you will find life empty and meaningless in the post retirement world.
If you’re not going forward, you’re going backwards because the world will continue to move on and you’ll be standing still. So endeavour to become more and more of who you can be every single day you’re on this planet. Don’t let your spirit wither and die, keep going!
