Why do we all hang on to the word ‘retirement’?
Like it’s a place we all go when we reach a certain age.
It’s how we all end up, at a fixed age, perceiving our world, seems to me.
Once we’ve retired that’s it.
We enter another world
A world where life is completely different.
Where we have permission to sit back and take it easy.
We quit work and enter a world where all our dreams come true.
Except that it’s the time we start to get old.
Doing nothing can mean letting our mind deteriorate through lack of exercise.
I’m talking about the mind.
What a waste.
There’s a book ‘Ageless Body, Timeless Mind’ by Deepak Chopra.
Everyone should read it.
It’s how we can stay younger healthier longer.
At least we should do something about keeping our minds and bodies going long after the ‘retirement’ word takes hold.
It’s certainly not in my vocabulary.
I wish you long life and a happy one.
