My humble story

I retired from a Fortune 500 insurance company in the US.  That only matters because I was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks and was lucky enough to have a mentor that believed in me and mentored me.    I am grateful.   I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and learning what you have done to be fulfilled in your retirement.  I’m still trying to figure it out.  Would love to hear from you.  💖

  1. You, along with a million others faced the same void of retirement and were totally mystified as to how to cope with it. My wife and I chose to travel extensively under our own steam and enjoyed every moment of it. By the time we finally settled into the reality of retirement we actually began to wonder how we ever had the time to go to work. Settling into retirement need not be an avalanche that engulfs and consumes you, let it become a slow moving glacier that carries you gently and safely into a different lifestyle.

  2. To keep it simple, I would say, never accept or believe you can or should be ‘fullfilled’ Keep on ‘fullfilling’ yourself. There is a whole world of Wonder to explore. Bob_deb is right about travel. It can change your perceptions and free you from your ‘generational manacles’ and ‘accepted conventions’ As Grace Slick sang, “Feed Your Head” . By the way! Welcome

  3. Welcome, in my humble opinion nobody comes from the wrong side of the tracks, you are a person and should be treated as such. It’s the love of money that make people judge others without knowing anything about them. I think you find people on this site all welcome you with no biases

    1. Thanks for the kind words. I try now to pay it forward and help other young people who think they aren’t good enough to believe in themselves.
