Stay Healthy Enough to Spend Your IRA!

Planning for your health is a lot like financial planning. With finances you take a good look at where you are right now and figure out where you want to be in the future. Well, so then what? Then you either educate yourself on investment and savings techniques or you find out who does that well and work with them. Education either way. Then you set goals, follow the plan, deal with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune (or loss) and if all goes well, your money gets to where you wanted it to go. Or if the economy tanks, you go back to work. Sigh. It's called a workaround gang.

So most of us are doing financial planning in some way. The thing is, without any plan to stay healthy, our money may arrive at its appointed destination without us. Yikes! We have to plan for health right along with our finances. So start now. Wherever you are. In whatever state you're in. Start! Read, read, read. You can't learn enough. Set some incremental goals to get you to where you want to go and then lean into it! Keep your eye on the goal and don't be deterred. You can do this.


  1. Your very welcome!! It is very fun - wonderful folks here!!! I love you too!!!!!

  2. Hey hon - just wanted you to know I sent you a blog award - I know your new - so you may not have anyone to send it off to yet - see the Lemonade award on my site! Love Sarah

  3. Anne, I can tell that this is going to be a wonderful site.

    1. You do have a lovely sister (actually Sarah says you have two).

    2. It is so important what you are putting out here. I never planned, I just assumed.

    3. One of the biggest regret all of us women in my group have is that we won't be able to retire. None of us work outside the home anymore, but that is not the point. That doesn't make us retired. None of us will be able to live off our laurels and enjoy the life of what we think a retiree is.

    Thank you for your posts and thanks for the comment about your pictures. Bring them on baby.

    Hope you are well.
