I feel Invisible. . . .
I hate to admit this... but in retirement I feel invisible. It's like I got off the Merry Go Round and everybody else is still on. I was tired of the "Merry Go Round" but now what???
Coming to a stop is disorientating for me. I have tired some things. . . but nothing feels right.
Spending time with my flowers and yard is still my best medicine, but it's more fun to share it with someone who loves them too. I haven't found that yet. My neighbors hire all their gardening and are never outside. I have someone to mow my yard.. but the enjoyment of planting a tree or flowers or bushes and watching everything grow is tremendous.
I love to feed, provide bird houses and feeders for the birds. It's just so neat to watch what is around us.
I know I need to keep trying to find that special friend, but it's just not as easy as it once was when I met people at work.
