Trying to get a handle on the next chapter of my life.
Looking up account balances,
Talking to a financial advisor,
Guesstimating how much money will be needed per month
for basic needs and the lifestyle I would like to live.
No guarantees on the income or the expenditures.
No guarantees about health.
No guarantees about anything past this moment in time.
Trying to predict what is needed for the future,
And plan accordingly.
The only guarantee
is it might make me feel a little better today
to have ballpark figures and know my options.
As for the future,
We’ll see how that goes when we get to it.
