Retirement Planning

Trying to get a handle on the next chapter of my life.

Retirement Planning.

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.
