I'm thinking of it as not so much retirement but starting a more rewarding and healthy phase of my life. My career has become unfulfilling and unrewarding I'm just tired of fighting against the unresponsive big company where I work to receive proper recognition and reward for my labours. I feel myself fattening locked behind this desk in need of more activity. Most of all I want to spend more time with my family and watch my kids grow up.
The future looks bright.
