Today is my last day before retirement so about to find out. I think I'll miss some things but hopefully I will have enough to fill the voids....right now I'm optimistic about hat.

May I recommend that while you're waiting to find out what activities will fill your days, you fill any empty time with walks, going to the gym, or some other physical activity.

It's smart to get the habit of doing a daily physical activity right from the start. and it gets you out of the house. It's easier to discover retirement passions when you're out in the community. As for other retirement activities, don't worry about having voids to fill. They'll come your way, trust me you'll soon be as busy as you wish to be. With each thing you do, you'll meet new friends who will suggest other things that will be fun to do.

Thank you so much I'm sure it will be an adjustment as my career has been full of stress, long hours, foreign travel, business class flights, and a feeling of accomplishment. I'll need to adjust.
