You have worked hard your entire life and played by the rules. Whether your first marriage or not, you care deeply about your partner and want to enjoy your time in these beautiful mountains. Still, transitions can be extremely challenging and stressful. There are very important decisions that need to be made regarding health and finances.

According to the famous Psychologist Erik Erikson, the later challenges in life involve Generation vs. Stagnation. Abraham Maslow coined the term Self Actualization, or reaching one's full and complete potential in life.

So now what? What will your next few years look like? You have worked hard and accomplished a great deal, even if it was just to survive. Your career may have ended a little early, gradually or gloriously. Either way, Now you will have more free time to fill. Will you isolate in your cave, learn a new hobby or help others? You have landed in an area rich in resources and opportunity for socializing, fun and learning. With some inward searching and outward support you can realize goals you never imagined one step at a time.
