How To Retire Gracefully and Thankfully

I will not talk from the point of view of a Financial Planner because that is one thing that every working person know and remember as retirement years are approaching. After all the hard work, and pain and joy in life as a working individual, the inevitable would welcome you as a member of that club - Welcome to the world of the retired people.
Some wish it had not come while some can't wait to retire. While having enough money in one coffer is always the ideal situation and is desirable, a peaceful mind is attributed to many other factors.
If we:
  • have provided decent education to our children,
  • are ready to live a lifestyle commensurate with the cashflow at retirement,
  • are happy that we can retire and be with our loved ones more often,
  • are not too worry about how to survive after retirement,
  • have faith that we'll always our Providence at hand,
  • have done our job to the best of our ability while still working,
  • have been such a bless to be with,
then I believe we can retire happily, gracefully thankfully. We have nothing to worry about because we have done our part. The rest, let's leave it to Him.
I'm dedicating this message to JM, a recently retired colleague of ours. I fully believe he is graceful and thankful for what he has. He has a lot still to offer to his society and he can contribute in many ways to the community he is living with.

Happy Retirement JM!
