Retirement: Time for New Beginnings

Many people view retirement as the end of their productive lives. Here at Watermark, we see it as a new beginning, ripe with opportunity.

“Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.” – Fred Rogers

When you retire, you have time to learn and do new things, make new friends and contribute to the world in new ways. You can strengthen existing skills and take lifelong talents to new levels. Retirement is a time to thrive unlike any other period of life. You have the knowledge, experience and resources to know what you want out of life and to actually achieve it. Living in a Watermark community puts a world of options at your fingertips.

A recent article on Considerable.com shared inspirational quotes about retirement from authors, celebrities and thought leaders. They agree that the key to a rewarding retirement is to remain active and engaged in the world around you.

“Retire from work, but not from life.”  – M.K. Soni

Life can be more satisfying, fun and adventurous after retirement than it ever was before. Your options are no longer limited by the constraints of work, home maintenance and daily responsibilities. Every day is different with new opportunities to explore.

“For many, retirement is a time for personal growth, which becomes the path to greater freedom.” – Robert Delamontague

Now is the time to pursue what your heart is calling you to do. Take advantage of opportunities to learn new things, pursue hobbies, stay fit or just relax when you want to. That’s the essence of retirement, and in a Watermark community your options are almost limitless.
