Transitioning Gracefully is Painnnnful!
Retirement . . . the word is threatening to me. Philosophically, I absolutely hate the idea. Most of us spend so much of our adult lives trying to gain ground in the areas we do our best work in. Retirement by its definition sounds so counter-productive to that. For a “type A” driver like me, it is difficult not to see retirement as a sort of resignation from meaningful contribution, stopping short of some unidentified goal. And yet, what one-dimensional, spiritually-limited, thinking this is!
