What My Sister Calls My Non Retirement Blog

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

When I was in my 20's and 30's, I did not think much about the future. The only date I really gave serious consideration to was where would I be on December 31, 1999. As far as aging goes, I also pictured myself in a rocking chair on a rickety porch of an old house in the mountains somewhere, with a rifle across my lap, prepared to yell at law enforcement they were not taking my land, no sirree.

That's really it for mental images. Much of the time I assessed my present situation every 5 years or so to determine if I was traveling on a path on which I preferred to continue. It wasn't until I hit my 50s that I began to imagine what it would be like to get older. And you know what they say about making plans . . .

When it comes to retirement, I am reminded of the John Lennon quote, "Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans."  I had certain retirement plans in place for several years.  Then when it came, I couldn't handle it.  Perhaps, it was because I was so busy burning the candle at both ends with two careers, that the sudden stop, felt like falling from a window of a highrise building, and landing on my face.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth. I didn't realize we were the same age. I am having many thoughts lately of how long should I stay in the business and what are the things I want to do before I no longer can.

Hi Elizabeth,
I did read your other blog post.  As long as you enjoy what you're doing, why not?  And the fact you only work because you want to makes it even better.  After my husband passed away, I decided to take a year off. He had been ill for some time and I NEEDED a rest. That was 7 years ago. I just never felt compelled to go back.    I do have other interests and have found a new path to follow. Each to their own.   Enjoy your non-retirement!

Happy belated birthday, Elizabeth. I'm in the same boat you are in, real estate IS my retirement. I love it the way I've set it up--divided between Carmel-by-the-Sea and Hawaii.
