Being ALIVE is an incredible gift!!! Life is all about being happy not so much about being productive or wealthy.Eman85--that was good planning on your part!
The flexibility of being retired is an incredible gift, isn't it?!?! Although I do find that I was far more productive when I was teaching full time, and sometimes it bothers me that while I always am busy, I don't feel like I accomplish as much as I'd like.
But I am happy and incredibly content overall, especially now that I am not dealing with the horrendous hip pain I had last year!
