It can be. I don't get financial advice but I worked in the business for 25 years. I can't help with retirement cash flow modeling, however.

Where to be, what you want to be doing, who will be there with you, what have you always wanted to do but had little time.

Kids will be off to University and beyond and just be my husband and I and we will probably sell house and move to smaller place

Yes, indeed! Exploration of what's next is often question-focused. What is it you truly want, and what do you perceive as your obstacles to having it.

I like working and being by myself. My husband retired four years ago and it has been harder for me having him around all the time, since I have a home office.Before Covid, I would get out more for lunches with friends or meetings with coaching colleagues. He doesn’t socialize but he misses time at the gym now. These days there is an “excess” of togetherness in my opinion. We work it out, though. I stay holed up in my office a lot. LOL. He bakes and that’s nice.
