Growing old is unavoidable and so is retirement! At some point, there is a greater need to settle down within the comforts of our homes and take in what life has to offer. A retired person once said: 'Retirement' is when you stop living at work and begin working at living'. It is especially hard for those who have excelled at their professions and maintained a high-quality lifestyle. Being at the top comes with a price and gracefully climbing down the ladder to watch someone else take your place is the final installment of this price. A boss works at a position where s/he works with the masses and then there comes a time when s/he resigns with a certain refine. You, as an employee, have probably seen this man or woman slog, work, be a team leader, create opportunities and be the motivating factor. You know you'll miss the advice once s/he is gone. So before this happens, give your seniors a taste of appreciation and admire them for what they're worth. Retirement usually occurs between the ages of 60 and 80, depending on the type of career. Gifting flowers, cards, memorabilia and other items as retirement presents to the boss would make even more sense if you included some retirement quotes and sayings. This would make them feel less terrible about giving in their papers. Read on for an idea!
