    With thousands of high school, trade school, and university graduates graduating in May and June, there are also 10,000 Americans who are reaching the age of 65 every day who are anticipating leaving the world of work to enter retirement. Fee-Only Financial Adviser and Certified Financial Planner Professional Steve Juetten says the same pithy advice often shared with new graduates applies to their parents, but with a twist pointing to their desired golden days ahead.

    "After years of funding private school tuition, lessons, and experiences for kids, graduation celebrations serve up a distinct moment in time to consider how to shift spending to fuel what's next for the parents," Juetten says. "In my experience, most parents experience some degree of panic around what the answer to that question might be. The difference between concerned, worried, and freaked out can be very dramatic, depending upon how well parents have anticipated their own needs."

    He adds, "So often, parents look back to the magic and memories they created for their children and recall their 'glory days gone by.' They may realize quite suddenly that they have forgotten to anticipate what might be next for them," Juetten says. "The truth is that some of the same advice that luminaries dole out to graduates is relevant for them, too."

    For example, he offers these quotes and a few of his own:

    • Life will be a little messy, but enjoy the mess.  It will be complicated, but enjoy the complications."  -- Nora Ephron
    • "Keep moving forward and know that life is not fair."  -- Admiral William McCraven
    • "Don't ever forget that you are a citizen of the world."  -- Aaron Sorkin
    • "Your time is limited.  Don't waste it by living someone else's life." -- Steve Jobs
    • "Take care of your health. It's your greatest asset." -- Steve Juetten
    • "Happiness is at the juncture of friends and experiences. Make sure you have enough of both." -- Steve Juetten
    • “It’s great to plan for your future. Just don’t live there, because nothing really happens in the future. Whatever happens, happens now.” – Jerry Zucker
