With 80 million boomers looking at retirement over the next decade the world suddenly becomes a playground more than it ever has before. Retirees are exploring continents, volunteering in orphanages in Tanzania, teaching adults how to read, working on dancing lessons, rightsizing their homeplaces and leaving their kids! Yep! Many boomers have experienced the 'yoyo' generation where their adult children come back home to live for whatever reason.
If you are uncertain about the time you will be retiring, try it out! Try out living on the money you have budgeted for monthly expenses. Try out living in a different community by vacationing where you have decided to move. Try out doing different activities after your normal work hours and on weekends. Try out making new friends. Try out eating healthier than ever before.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Who knows? You might find that you step into retirement busier and more fulfilled than you ever imagined. Just try it!
