So, if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. That's what my husband did.

If I were 65, I'd do just that. In fact, if I'm still there at 65 I'm not planning very well.

However, that's a rather flip answer to give someone who's fifty, forty, thirty-five, or even younger.

I'm glad it was an option for you, but you're talking retirement at that age, not a possibly devastating loss of income and/or a need to literally rethink someone's entire life.
