365 Reasons Why You Will Love Retirement

 

 Retirement - The Joy of Being Retired


#1 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can enjoy being yourself in your retirement whereas in your career days you have you had to pretend to be someone you weren't.

#2 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: In retirement each day stretches before you filled with unlimited leisure and opportunity. What's more, you can appreciate all that opportunity even if you squander it watching TV.

#3 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You don’t have to take tedious business-trip flights, during which you are alone a lot. Instead you can get yourself a fun retirement job and make some unconventional retirement income.

#4 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: No more ridiculous training programs in which seminar presenters try to force you to read cheesy books such as Who Moved My Cheese? (that are totally useless for the creatively ambitious and the organizationally averse).

#5 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You have lots of time to do the household projects you have been putting off forever.

#6 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can call your former co-workers while they are at work and tell them that you have just got out of bed and might go back for a nap after your midday breakfast.

#7 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You don’t have to wait for a bus on a sub zero January morning.

#8 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You have more time to do things that satisfy your wild side - sexually or otherwise!

#9 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can have your retirement dream come true - living in a little cabin somewhere by the sea.

#10 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You have the time to enjoy the beauty of your grandkids, your wife, and the trees in your backyard.

#11 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You have the time to do all the things you always wanted to do but never had time for.

#12 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can take a carefree vacation without having to take some work with you.

#13 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: With a reduced income from when you were working, you realize that the happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of retirement.

#14 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can get in your R.V. (Retirement Heaven on Four Wheels) and head out any time you want.

#15 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: If you were an engineer, no more having to go the Engineer's Ball wearing a tuxedo and your friends making snide remarks about your paying $115 to wear borrowed pants.

#16 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You have lots of time to do the household projects you have been putting off forever.

#17 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: More than any other time in your life, you have the opportunity to put all areas of your life in proper balance.

#18 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can feel morally superior to working people because you have earned your retirement and they haven’t.

#19 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can wake up at 9:30 on weekday mornings, take a look outside your front window, observe that all your neighbors' cars are gone having taken them to work where their workday will be filled with idiot co-workers, useless meetings, and other toxic experiences. You can then go back to bed for a most enjoyable half-hour sleep as a reward for being so much more prosperous than your neighbors.

#20 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You no longer have to face the dim possibility that the final humiliation you will face is when you die at your workplace screaming at your boss.

#21 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: No more having to face Draconian corporate policies such as the company instituting layoffs due to the economy and trying to save the most money by downsizing the highest paid and unhealthiest workers first.

#22 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can move to smaller house knowing that you no longer have to waste so much time, energy, and money trying to buy the biggest house that your credit rating will allow. Truth be known, a small house can hold as much happiness as a large one. Sometimes it will hold even more.

#23 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You can truly live the moment by spending 3 or 4 hours at lunch with your friends without having to look at your watch because time is no longer as important as when you had a job.

#24 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You have the opportunity to reactivate old friendships and cultivate new friends of all ages.

#25 Reason Why Retirement Rocks: You get the opportunity to explode the myth forever that retirement is tough on everyone.
