FinancePatriot April 25, As a 41 year old man, I agree about being fearful to retire. I made the wise choice and asked to be laid off with severance instead. This was not in my comfort zone, but it worked.
Now I will get 3 months of severance, this summer, and qualify for unemployment, should I need it. Dividend Growth Investor April 25, As we all know, past performance is not indicative of future results, and the future is unknown.
For some reason, people believe that a job income is more secure than investment income. I personally believe that a diversified portfolio stands a better chance of providing for the individual than job income. I believe that many people who have enough money to retire are probably not sure what they would do with their time.
If you have no passions outside of work, you should probably keep working. If they do have passions to retire to, then perhaps those could provide them with a fulfilling use of that time. Reply --Michael Sheldon April 26,9: If you are FI but lost your passions along the way, then take a break and go find your passions.
If leaving work permanently for the unknown is too daunting, you can try a sabbatical which would give you time to try new activities with the safety net of having a known lifestyle to go back to. Dividend Growth Investor April 26,3: For many who spent a lot of time at work, work is their life.
An elderly relative of mine retired at age of 50 militarythen worked for another decade. He retired at the same time as his spouse did — source of income were mainly pensions. They did not do much in retirement other than watch TV, and complain about the government.
They definitely missed out on their social contacts at work, but the thing that saved them in the initial years was that family was nearby so they engaged that way. After family no longer needed their services, there was a period of isolation that was not very happy for them.
Freaky Frugal May 18, I hit FI and retired at 52 with a vague plan on what I would do. What I ended up doing was very different from what I thought I would do.Beauty, its in our face every time we turn on the television set or flip though the pages of magazines.
Day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute, our minds are being filled with images of beautiful people. Fingers on already powdered skin if you want to be seen from Mars though I find layering with a beauty blender either way to build up easier if you want to be cautious.
Also as a final note, I know people say the value of the products isn't great when you break it all down by weight compared to other products. The worlds of love and porn are obsessed with beauty, or that modern catch-all adjective: hot.
If you’re not good looking and sexy in a conventional way, you’re nothing. When pulling together my bag of overrated makeup products, I felt like I was bound to hit a nerve with some folks by declaring my dislike of the Revlon Colorstay foundation. This is a foundation that I again and again see people swear-by as their ultimate favorite from the drugstore.
As a black dude, recently I just noticed as a collective whole, white women's beauty is vastly overrated here in the US.
Now don't get me wrong, i've seen some bomb white girls, but their mainly in California where I stay. Their tan too, and their hip and got cool personalities.
Fruit is the most overrated health food because it’s essentially sugar with a few nutrients – fewer than people think. Fruit contains high amounts of fructose and glucose in varying combinations – the two sugars that make up sucrose (table sugar).
