What is Retirement?

Someone asked me earlier today about when I was going to retire. I said possibly within a couple of years yet.

Then I thought about what really is retirement. Is it just leaving full-time work? Or is it something else?

For many, it means not having that 40 plus hours a week devoted to earning a paycheck. It can mean you now have time to do what you want whether it earns a paycheck or not.
