Life After Retirement. The phone finally stopped ringing!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

Quiet of the nightIt's been over two years since I stopped working. And I can honestly say I don't miss it one bit. Because I am now blessed with one of the greatest gifts of all:

Silence!

Blessed silence.

After years of the phone ringing day and night the quiet permeates my existence in a way that never seemed possible before. One cannot overstate the therapeutic benefits of time uninterrupted by the persistent clanging of text chimes and ring-tones.

Imagine being able to read without interference or to watch a television program in real time. It's a luxury that I never thought I could attain. I cannot think of one material thing that would be of greater value than my time!

If I feel the need for sound, I have my guitar at the ready. As you might imagine my playing proficiency  on the instrument has multiplied many-fold in ways that I never thought possible while I was juggling clients and contracts!

There is something to be said for nothing!

Peace!

Richard, I think after so many years, silence may take a while to get used to?   Enjoy your retirement, sounds very peaceful!
