Are we talking about my retirement expectations or yours?

Starting over at 57

I'm being blasted from colleagues and friends as “jumping ship” prematurely into retirement because I’m not using some pre-packaged presumed assumption of how I will be living my life when I retire from my current career job. Whose retirement is this, anyway?

The nest is empty ... now what?

It’s not the getting old part, it’s feeling old

I feel old. Not only did I turn 50 years old last month, but my youngest son graduated from high school and is heading out of state to start college. For the first time in 21 years, I will not have any children at home. I feel that time is moving too fast and I want to yell at it to slow down. Sound familiar?

So what about retirement? If you can, do you want to?

Starting over at 57

Thirty-five years of saving, 10 years of aggressive investing and the last five years of  learning to live on 32%-46% of my salary, had finally paid off. I could retire and have more income during retirement than I have while still working. But my heart is not in it to retire ... yet.
