Dave Bernard, writing at U.S. News/Money, has wonderful advice in his column, "The Best Investment for Senior Citizens." While investing in financial things is important, even more important is your own health and happiness. That means investing in you. No amount of money in the world makes up for unhappiness and poor health.
Do you know what excites you? What is your passion? That's the first thing. It could be beading, hiking, helping others, writing. Whatever it is, do more of it. Keep working on being a better person. Keep learning, trying new things. If you retire at 65, you could easily have 20 more years of life and maybe even 30 or more. Keep life exciting! And, of course, take care of yourself.
You can read the other two items at his article, but suffice it to say, the important thing is to stay engaged with life. Each day you should wake with anticipation, grateful to be alive and experiencing this world. Living the RV lifestyle is a way to bring new things into your life. You can change your neighborhood, the climate and the people you are around anytime you want. So many options! Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
