Even More Thankful After All We’ve Been Through
The world has been on a wild rollercoaster ride for the past few years. The pandemic and the fear that each new strain of COVID brings. An unbelievable war resulting in worldwide oil shortages. Record-breaking hurricanes and more. The ups and downs have been dramatic, and for some utterly devastating and tragic. But those of us who are still breathing, laughing, loving, working, and moving forward, have much to be thankful for. And we’re in the unique position of having the opportunity to plan for our future based on some of the recent events.
With Thanksgiving coming at the end of this month, I, for one, am grateful for knowing with great certainty that life is all about changing. Nothing stays exactly the same forever. That’s life. And that’s what makes life exciting. It’s also what shines light on the fact that our family and loved ones mean so much. Our health and the health of our loved ones becomes the highest priority when we are faced with life-threatening illnesses and devastating acts of nature.
If you’ve been putting off establishing a financial plan for retirement, it’s time to stop procrastinating. When we manage to avoid one disaster after another, it’s almost like we’re being given yet another opportunity to accomplish things we’ve been putting off.
Of course, there are some events you can’t see coming. You just can’t anticipate and plan for things like a global pandemic. But you can always approach financial planning with the attitude that you’ll plan for the worst-case scenarios and expect the best.
I am thankful for each and every one of my clients who made it through the last few years and can still enjoy their retirement years. I’m also thankful that so many clients, despite hardships, still contribute to their retirement plans.
If you are ready to establish a financial plan for your future retirement and the benefit of your loved ones, give my office a call and let’s get started. It’s a great feeling to put a plan in action. It’s something for which I am eternally grateful. In fact, I am more thankful than ever each year as we ride the waves of Life that just keep coming.
