Being retired means enjoying the luxury of being able to do what you want, and when you want to do it. Don’t be hesitant to try new things, you’re in a wonderful position to have a special experience.
All I wanted to do was read my book. I had been promising myself I would take the time to read fiction again but hadn’t managed to read more than a couple of fiction books a year. Seems like everything I read is always professional or personal development. No reading just for the fun of it. But as I am thinking about what retirement might look like for me, I am trying to give myself permission to do more leisure things, like read fiction.
