A New Beginning…

Finally it’s here. After 25 years, I am retiring. Retiring from the company that I have spent half of my life with. I’ve been so loyal (lol). Thought I’ll be staying til I’m in my senior years. But here I am, retiring at 50!

Life is a mystery. You can never predict the future. My retirement brought about mixed emotions. I felt sad that I will leave behind something that I enjoyed doing with the company that I love. But on the other hand, I am happy that I won’t be stressed out anymore and swamped with work. I am happy that I can finally have time to pursue other interests. That I will have time to spend with my love ones without thinking of going on vacation leave to visit or tend to their needs. The only thing that I will miss will be my monthly salary but not the work load. So, I guess I am more happy than sad with my retirement! (lol)

I am excited to a new beginning. I look forward to learning new skills that I am unable to do because I don’t have the time while working full time. I am thinking what I’ll do. Do I immediately look for another job? What kind of job? I don’t think I want to do a full time job again. (lol) Do I start a business? The plans in my brain seem endless!

Well, let’s see what will happen. One thing is for sure, I will be more active in blogging because soon I’ll be free as a bird!
