Recently, while listening to Loral Langemeier’s signature talk again, I got to hear her define retirement in less than glowing terms. She claims the term was commonly used to describe a milk cow who was too old and was put out to pasture.
The term is used a bit differently now –
for one thing, we don’t treat our faithful animal friends with nearly as much kindness!
Anyways, I found these definitions for retired, and retiring:
Lots of them sound fairly appealing to me but then I’m a bit of an introvert. But, I’d rather have a say in when I “withdraw from circulation” and that defines financial freedom for me.
What’s your idea of retirement? Will you be able to afford it?
Live Long (anyways) and Prosper,
