Embrace retirement gracefully to live life to the fullest

Embrace retirement gracefully. Let me tell you why? The last Saturday was my last working day in my office.

When I came from my office to my quarter, I saw my wife waiting at the front door. Then I handed over the gifts of farewell to her. Afterward, I unlaced my shoes, kept them outside, went straight to the bathroom. Then I washed my hands, faces, legs, washed my dresses, and took a refreshing bath in hot water. When my wife offered me a cup of tea, I felt so relaxed to sip the tea. With each sip, the tea tasted better and better. With each sip, a sense of freedom took over my mind. I thought now I could do anything I like.

My friends and well-wishers rang me up one by one. Everyone was congratulating me on the successful completion of my service life. Few of them also apprehended that I might feel bad after retirement. So they were consoling me. But I was feeling free inside because of no more work pressure or work-life hazards. It’s a feeling of freedom a bird enjoys flying in the sky.

I thought that my moods would go down when I would retire. But thanks to the lockdown. It made me stay at home and work from home. So it had helped me much to taste a retired life before I retire. Do you know It helped me too to remain in peace with my retirement? So what I did. I embraced retirement gracefully. Everyone will retire one day. So don’t take retirement as a burden on your life. The retired life is for living life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest depends on how you greet retirement. So embrace retirement gracefully.
