Tim, sure. I think that’s the thing about people I’ve known who’ve retired is that they don’t know what to do with their free time and can feel like there’s value lost. My mom retired the other year, and felt like this at first but then she found things to fill her time, namely other people. I’m sure I’ll continue to “work” as i get older and once I retire, but my point was merely that work is still work, and when you become addicted to it giving you meaning, you miss out on what really matters. One of the biggest thing people say on their death bed is that they wish they would have worked less and focused more on people. Thanks for reading and responding!
