Book: Retirement is fun - A new Chapter by Brenda Mohammedcategories: Book, Autobiography, Personal Memoirs, Retirement
Brenda Mohammedabout this book: This book is a sequel to an earlier book I wrote called "My Life as a Banker - A Life worth Living." The book starts off with the negative feelings that I had about retirement from the bank. I felt that I was too young to retire at 55 but at that time that was my employer's policy for women. I did not retire by choice. I felt at that time that I could have worked for ten more years.
As my life continued to unfold I realized that my fears of retirement were unfounded. I never applied for another job but I was offered lucrative opportunities.
The job I took was one which gave me lots of travelling opportunities abroad. it was so much fun and not at all tedious. Then my grand-children were born and oh what joy they brought into my life. My whole life changed for the better and i have never looked back since, except to write this book.
I chose the title "Retirement is Fun" because it seems that I have never stopped having fun since I retired from that first job. I chose a red cover because red is my favorite colour. However, life was not all fun at times. I experienced cancer, death of loved ones, an accident, a hurricane, an earthquake, and other minor setbacks along the way. None of these things changed my positive outlook on life. I considered those events as part of life and wrote this book solely from my personal experiences.I did not feel the need to do any research for the book because I believed that my readers would appreciate my true story.
When you read this book you will realize that life does not end at retirement from a job. Life goes on and there are many other jobs out there in which you can use your talents. You will also find time to do lots of things that you never dreamed of doing before. I have learnt that Life is what you make it.Your choices have consequences. What you are today is as a result of the choices you have made in life.
Life can be beautiful. Live it!
