Retirement Living with a Song and a Smile

Your thoughts about life and living are probably influenced by your belief system. American actress, Mae West, to whom several notable quotes are attributed, is claimed to have said: “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough”. On the other hand, author Ian Fleming, via the fictitious hero of his series of novels, James Bond 007, was seemingly of the opinion: “You only live twice”.

As a senior citizen or retiree, have you ever gazed critically at photographs of yourself, taken during your late teens and 20s, and thought to yourself: “I wasn’t all that bad looking; why didn’t I make the most of those years, at the time?” “What did I really have to complain about?” What, indeed.


“A Lifetime of Smiles”

Here’s a tip to soothe your soul. During early 1993, singer-songwriter, Joshua Kadison, had a hit, entitled “Beautiful in my Eyes”, which featured wonderful lyrics, such as: “…and there are lines upon my face, from a lifetime of smiles…”. Keep this lovely line in mind and keep smiling, in anticipation of your retirement living.


Live Well – Retire Right

Seriously, though, if you agree with Mae West, as most people would, ensure that you do it (this business of living and lifestyle) well and right, including during every moment of your retirement and the daily activities with which you occupy your time and mind.


Time to Do What You Choose

You’ve worked for umpteen years to care for yourself and your loved ones, and now, you have time for yourself. Take it and use it well during your retirement.
