You may find that sentiments can be a
nice way to congratulate someone on their new journey in life.
Sending wishes is a nice way to tell them you are very happy
for them and you hope they will enjoy this time in their life.
But you may be
wondering what to say to them. If you have not retired yet yourself, not
knowing truly what they are going to be encountering may be even more
difficult. We have compiled a list of examples for your convenience.
You have definitely earned this retirement, so enjoy every moment!
This is the time when you start learning how to live and stop thinking
about schedules, appointments and deadlines!
Its is now time to stop fussing, stressing and working! It is time for
relaxing, napping and traveling! Enjoy retirement!
You have all the time in the world now! So use it wisely and donít let
any of it be wasted! Every moment will be your retirement
Hopefully youíll find retirement as one long coffee break! Enjoy and
take it easy!
You may find once your living as a retiree for some time that retiring
was the start of your life!
The greatest thing about retirement is, if you get bored with doing
nothing, you can start doing something, anything, anytime, anyplace
without anyone saying anything!
Writing your own wish or sentiment isnít hard.
Just think about what you hope retiring will be like for the person.
Think about something they enjoy or always wished they had time for or
more time to do. Then write something about it. For example, if my
friend loved golf but didnít have enough time to do it I would say
something like this:
You finally have all the time in the world to play golf, so play
golf, think golf, dream golf and enjoy golf! Congrats on your
retirement, and I hope you play golf every day and every waking hour of
Of course you can go simpler by just telling them:
We are so happy for you and hope you spend your retirement doing
nothing but things you enjoy at your favourite time of the day while
enjoying wonderful thoughts of your new life.
Feel free to use any of
these in your card or letter. If you prefer to write your
own, great, hopefully we have given you some ideas of what you truly
want to say. Keep in mind, quotes, poems and sayings another great way
to send your congrats. You may want to include one of those as well.
