Hi Everyone, I have a question for you.
Are You a Boomer or Close?

If you are, then this post is for you. You’re likely at least thinking about retirement or perhaps already have pulled the pin.
I hope you have at least a vague plan of what you’d like the rest of your life to be like. Good first step.

It’s sort of like when you graduated from High School or the University… What now ?

Sure you have some ideas, but if you’re still sort of feeling your way you’re normal. Very few people know just exactly what they want to do.

That’s OK. Try some things out. Since you’re reading this I can assume that you might be thinking about or perhaps have already planned a trip to Lake Chapala – Ajijic in Mexico. Good Choice!

Many people come for a check us out trip and many stay full time or decide at least at first to divide their time living here just part of the year.

Many start off as part timers and later evolve into full time residents. That was my situation over a decade ago. Now, I can’t think of anyplace I’d rather live (all things considered).

Your retirement will be different from that of your parents, It will be more exciting, more fulfilled and likely longer lived as well, with more lifestyle options.

Actually, even the word “retirement” is really not strictly applicable in today’s world where life expectancy is so much longer.

Perhaps we should event a new term for this stage of life.
How about Stage 2 ?

A friend asks, “Are you retired?” You respond, “No I’m in stage 2”. Then you can elaborate what that means for you

We all need lives filled with purpose. Hobbies, travel, language study, volunteer work all can help to give Stage 2 purpose and fulfillment.

Fulfillment means different things to different people. No need these days to settle for a ‘one-size-fits-all’ old style retirement.

I’ve personally found that while this phase of my life looks much different than my previous lives (Police Officer, Attorney, Real Estate Investor) my life now is just as fulfilled as a Blogger, Author, and Exclusive Buyer’s Only Realtor.

The similarities for me are there with lots of public contact, lots of writing, and a service oriented income. But many folks totally change direction and that’s permitted too.

From new Baby Boomers & Mid – Boomers to Seniors we are all looking for our place in the sun like a butterfly emerging from the it’s cocoon. (Be sure and check the video further down)

So, if Lake Chapala – Ajijic is on your radar screen I look forward to helping you to decide if our area might be your place in the Sun.
Many thousands just like you have found it to be just right for them either full or part time.

I look forward to hearing from you to see just how I can help.
