From Retirement Manifesto …
Have you ever tried to explain what something tastes like? Let’s go with chocolate, as an example. How would you describe it? What words would you use?
Yeah, the first week of retirement is alot like that.
It’s good, but I can’t think of the right words to describe it. Regardless, today we’re going to try.
As I write these words, I’m 5 days into my retirement (a true rookie). Is the first week of retirement like being on vacation? On one hand, kinda sorta, but that falls far short of describing the reality. It’s similar in that you’re off work for a few days, but it’s very, very different in the knowledge that You’re Never Going Back To Work.
So, imagine the first 1/2 of your vacation, where you’re all pumped up and excited. But you know it lasts for the rest of your life. Yeah, it’s more like that.
