You’ve worked hard to reach the “Golden Years” stage of your life – and now is the time to enjoy it!
After spending a lifetime building up your nest egg and raising a loving yet independent family, this is the time in which you get to reap the rewards.
As you evolve into your second act, you have the opportunity to experience the best of what life has to offer. Assuming you’re physically able to cope with the challenges that come with aging and as long as you manage to live within the constraints of your budget, your golden years shine brightly for the foreseeable future.
First, you need not “act your age”. In other words, you are not bound to act according to any preconceived rules for what is “right” for your age.
In fact, you know what’s right for your age? Anything you decide to do! You want to take samba dance classes? Go ahead! Always dreamed of playing a musical instrument? Now’s the time to learn!
There is nothing wrong with acting on the spur of the moment. Why pass up a chance to enjoy the freedom you have so painstakingly earned? Why attempt to suppress the energy and desire you have to do whatever you feel like doing? In fact, we suggest you should make your new motto: “If it feels good, do it” (so long as, of course, you don’t hurt yourself or others in the process).
Along those same lines: Who needs to wait for the weekend to have fun? While the workday world tries to cram all its leisure activity into a frantic 48 hours, you get to do it whenever you feel like doing it. Want to play 18 holes of golf on a Tuesday? You’ll have your pick of the tee times. Want to catch some live theater in the middle of the day? Hey, that’s what matinees are for. And all without the nerve-rattling hustle and bustle of rush-hour traffic jams!
In fact, you get to make your own schedule – no more bosses or clients needing you to meet their deadlines. No, you get to call the shots now. And that’s why this should be the best time of your life!
