What bucket list items are still on hold until your retire? Have you revisited your dreams and hopes as you move towards the ladder years of a “working” career? Instead of sitting back to see what life brings, move the daily mind set into the proactive approach to create a lifestyle that includes all of your favorite hobbies and activities. Whether retired or approaching that day, today is a great opportunity to transform your thinking so that you can create a retirement lifestyle that brings rewards for yourself, those that you choose to have around you, and for the world at large. God knows we need more of that!
Fulfillment Means to You?
You have worked hard for many years. Now is the time to revisit, amend, create a new set of dreams. Don’t let yourself be fooled into thinking that your retirement lifestyle needs to be structured in a certain way. It doesn’t matter what your friends or family members choose… you can pick the lifestyle that will be best suited to match your needs.
Retirement is more than just having enough money to get by. These finances are designed to help you get the most out of life. Put yourself first to make sure you have the “what if’s” financially covered then think about starting a Foundation, donating time and treasure to a cause, or mentoring others. Put together your wish list to decide where you want to live, what you want to do, and how you should be spending your time. This life plan can help you be proactive to enjoy these years, instead of missing out on the opportunities that are available.
Planning a Home to Match Your Preferences
As you put together a life plan for your retirement years, you will be in a better position to choose a home to match your desired lifestyle. For example, if you want to spend time exploring the world, then it might make sense to “rightsize” to a smaller home or condo service with an HOA that cares for the yard. Or, if you want to spend more time with family, then you need to be sure that you are in a home where you can easily host your children and grandchildren.
