I love this paragraph "Once you learn to be happy then you can light your candle and spread joy to others and when your candle goes out, you will have benefited many others."

Great Buzz. We all want to be happy, but sometimes trying to find happiness can be a struggle. Often times we search for it in all the wrong places or ways, when the answer is much simpler- God. "Happy are the people whose God is the Lord" Psalm 144:15. How to share Happiness is shared in 1 John 3:18. "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." We do not use words, yet our actions. The Truth is the word, John 17:17.

Paul, many of us who "retire" keep busy doing some for pay, others for fun or other reasons. I believe that having a sense of purpose is a prime mover for all of us. We need a reason to get out of bed in the morning. If we have no reason, then you are spot on in that over time our brains will feel like a bowl of jello.

Royce Shook . There is no such thing as retirement. I guess I was lucky in having sold my company at 48 and thought, "that's it I'm retiring" That lasted 6 months until my brain akin to a bowl of jello. I 'work' in that I write commercially and not necessarily for the money but it does I think, keep me alive. None of us should effectively'retire' as all we then do is take up space!! However, thank you for a thought-provoking piece
