Nobody grows old
merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our
ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles
So in your retirement, you wonít allow yourself to grow old, in fact you
should turn back the time! Let this time be the things you never got the
chance to do when you were younger. After accomplishing these dreams,
you will probably feel younger, definitely happier!
You are as young as your faith, as old as your
doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young
as your hope, as old as your despair.
A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.
Regrets are in no way to be part of ones retirement. This is a time for
you to rejoice and live. Regrets hold people back from doing what they
love, because they feel guilty and feel as if they do not deserve this
happiness. But if you have worked as long and hard as most people have,
no matter what regrets you have, they should be put on the back burner
so you can celebrate your retirement and enjoy it! Donít allow any
regrets to steal this time from you. You will have lots of time to thing
about those regrets when youíre dead! Right now, youíre alive and you
should act like it!! Live in the present, not in the past! The past will
do you no good!
The first half of life consists of the capacity to enjoy without the
chance; the last half consists of the chance without the capacity.
It's sad to grow old, but nice to ripen.
As we all hate to see the number of candles on our birthday cake grow
each year, we should be celebrating our accomplishments and our
experiences. As these are going to make all the difference in our later
years. Retirement especially will benefit these years, so enjoy the
There's no such thing as too late. That's why
they invented death.
