A healthcare perspective

Hello, my name is Tiffany and for the past three years I have worked as a dietitian at a hospital and a cancer center. Through my job I have been part of numerous successful treatment stories, but I have also been with people as they are experiencing their last days in this world. Like all the famous songs and sayings go, people do not wish for more time working or more money, they are talking about all of the things they didn’t do or get to do before their time was up. I have listened to countless people discuss at length all the things they are going to do when they retire, yet in the hospital, I often meet people who suffer debilitating ailments shortly after they finally do. Many of my patients have urged me not to let that happen to me, too.  Working has always been a big part of who I am, though, and it will continue to be a part of who I am possibly past the traditional age of retirement. Scott and I do not know what the future will bring, but we do know that we are healthy right now and due to well thought-out planning we are monetarily set to pretire in 2016.
