CHAPTER 1 Home is Where the Heart is Picture your life in 3, 5, even 10 years from now. What does it look like?
Do you look upon the future with trepidation? Or are you excited to make the most of your post-retirement years?
If you identify with the latter, I want you to know you’re not alone. When we’ve spent the better part of our lives raising families, establishing careers, and building meaningful relationships, imagining such a drastically different life and lifestyle can seem impossible — and even scary.
But I’m here to tell you that while the future may be drastically different, it can also be equally wonderful.
Now, I want you to think specifically about your home.
In 10 years, are you still living in the same house? Is it still the perfect home you once thought it to be? Is that house still meeting your needs? Are you spending too much time trying to keep up with all the space you have (but likely don’t need or use)? And while you may not want to consider this possibility, are you finding it more difficult to maintain your home due to age, a lack of time and interest, health issues, etc.?
