It seems to be unspoken life rules that infiltrate the subconscious mind concerning retiring and reaching a certain age.
Most of us don’t realize it, but throughout our lives we become programmed to think old is when we reach the sixties. There is also a thought that retiring means you’re old.
I believe both of those preconceived notions are completely wrong.
A lot of people have the privilege of retiring younger than the sixties. So according to the rules the retired person is not old.
Many years ago people in their sixties acted old and looked old. Today that is not the case. If they care for themselves, their age can’t be detected.
God said He would satisfy us with long life. I don’t believe He meant until sixty.
So if you are approaching the sixties, don’t be overcome by thought of sixty being old.
If you are privileged to retire before sixty—bless you and enjoy your life because Old Ain’t The End.
