Hi, I’m Carol and I’m retired. Now without thinking, does your mind immediately picture someone ancient and befuddled, physically and mentally in decline? That’s one of the ageist stereotype applied to retirees; people worn out, dried up and a burden on society.
Just so you know I’m an active 59 years old, work out four times a week, and I just finished writing my first book.
Granted I retired early, adding one more to the 8,000 baby boomers who, starting in 2011, retire every single day. People who on average will live 20 to 30 years past retirement age.
