In my 20's I has such dreams. Then reality hit and I allowed work and life to imprison me for decades. I am now 64 and a half and just took an early retirement package. I'm not rich, but hope to reinvent myself, or perhaps rediscover myself is a better term, and to earn an income again. Enough to supplement social security or replace it. But a meaningful income, doing things that fulfill my soul, not just filling my wallet.

 

Is there a specific forum, website, book that addresses retirees who are seeking to rediscover their long lost dreams and maybe achieve at least some of them?

 

Thanks in advance.
