Putting your time in at the office; dutifully spawning your two point five; smiling politely at your retirement party; then chewing on your bedsheet and choking on your canned peaches at the nursing home. It was better never to have been born-never to have wanted anything, never to have hoped for anything.
Never regret getting old. Not many get the chance' (it's been said)... My mission in my youth has been to help young people entering the workforce not to be tricked into thinking they can live life later in retirement by corporations dangling 10 days vacation per year. Sickening. I already know my mission in retirement age will be to help others realize they are not too old to live the dreams of their youth. Lesson: Act now.
