Have you noticed this too; the problem that is still persisting from most of families members, neighbors or those retired I hear about out there, is, “when they retire from a job, they also retire from life”. And many of us don’t know that when one retires from life, then they are just as dead as a dead mouse.
Before we go far, listen, to retire means to expire, and that’s what many retirees end up expired after they retire from a job; but it must never end up like this, though many have not realized that a retirement can be a new venture, a new challenge, a new path, a new beginning of the satisfying lifestyle.
Therefore, a retirement must not be a depressing time and it must never be a burden to your children or family as it has for many; and it’s depressing to hear someone retired saying or thinking, “Now that I am retired, I don’t know what to do now with my life?”, in reality, he or she is saying, “I am mentally and physically dead. My mind is bankrupt of ideas”, but someone’s life must not end up in this depressing moment after employment, in fact it must be a new beginning of a new interesting life, not the other way round.
It has been said that you grow old when you lose interest in life, when you cease to dream, to hunger after new truths and to search for new worlds to conquer, that’s fact, and the sure way to never retire out of life is to never retire out of life, to make sure that your mind never retires.
Your mind must be like a parachute – it’s of no use at all unless it opens up. Your mind must remain open and receptive to new ideas, and with this attitude, you will always be young and vital with life.
If you have a job or not retired yet; remember that retirement in the employment world does not exist, it’s actually a programmed illusion by the government also facilitated by school system; its one manipulative mental cage system they have designed to steal your wealth day light, legally as you work your ass hard at a job till you reach 65 years old for a retirement. A job is just there to steal your wealth, and by wealth I mean your time, which is your life, realize this and start planning your future wisely, than letting your employer, government or a job control and steal your future ahead.
What you call retirement must become your new venture of your life, it must make you to become a child a again, must inspire you to think new ideas about yourself, to travel new places, meet new people, learn a new cultures, learn a new language, start a business, enjoy time with your grandchildren and more etc.
Let your retirement be a new dream of your life and a new adventure to conquer a new world and fulfill the second chance you have been given to live the life you imagined that you never lived in the first place if, when you were busy at the job.
