So hard to believe that Barclay and I started this blog-www.revisionistretirement.com two years ago this month! Happy Anniversary to us, and to you, our subscribers!
Who knew how difficult and bumpy this retirement ride would actually be! Shouldn’t retiring be the finish line of the race you have been running for 30-40 years? It always seemed so far away, somebody else’s life, not mine! I was young and would stay forever the girl I saw in the mirror.
It has been a 3-year ride now for Barclay and me. During that time I have been emotional, depressed, ecstatic, moody, petulant, frustrated, disappointed, and confused (at times, all of these rolled into one!) Now, I think I am in a good place, in my head, in my mind, and in my heart.
What is certain is that reflecting on the process through this blog has been cathartic for us both. But more importantly, if we have helped ONE person have a smoother ride, then we have accomplished something wonderful!
We now have a favor to ask you…
First a question for those who are retired.
