Some Thoughts on Retirement

Retirement is the next big adventure in my life. Come July 2011,by virtue of the mandatory law on retirement ,I will be out from the government service . I have forty-four long years as public servant, 10 years of which were spent in the teaching profession. The 34 years in another government office provided me with other work exposures entirely different from my previous job.

If I am to describe these long years ,I can say I am genuinely satisfied with my work . It is with this feeling that I am now having some thoughts on retirement. From my readings I gathered some tips .

1. Use your brain,Keep active,read,write
2. Pursue your hobbies
3. Get involved with charity
4. Learn to do something new (crochet,cross stitch,cooking,new language)
5. Go on local or foreign trips
6. Renew friendships
7. Do volunteer work
8. Spend Time Gardening
9. Get Into Sports
10. Join a Pilgrimage

Well, I think these are enough to fill my days .

Luz, enjoy your days away from your desk. One tip is to go local and foreign trip. When are you coming again to U.S? Make it October 2011 at Northern California. We are scheduling mini Reunion in Sacramento California. Regards and take care.

You're not retiring, Luz. You are simply pursuing other interests in your life! From your to-do-list, you're not even slowing down. Way to go, girl friend. Wishing you the best in your next goals and hobbies!
God speed,
