Moving is always a little traumatic. But moving from a larger home to a smaller retirement home may be even more stressful. Certain memories and possessions won’t make the cut for the new home.
If you had to downsize your life, at any age, what things would you take with you, and what would you choose to leave behind?
As part of my retirement theme, I offer this weekly Thursday “Future Challenge” to get people of all ages thinking in general about their futures and/or retirement. Each challenge goes with a post of my own on the same general topic. Hopefully we’ll start some interesting discussions!
If you’d like to share what you think, or post on it, that’s great – and I’d love it if you’d share those thoughts in a post or comment (please tag posts TRS Future Challenge and link to this post) so others can also see them.
If you choose not to share them, that’s fine too – but with any luck, you’ll still gain some insight on where you’re headed (or would like to be), and how you can get the most out of your own journey.
For my own take on this week’s challenge, see my post To Keep or Not to Keep? The Trials of Downsizing a Household.
