It has finally happened... Retirement!
I am in my second week of retirement.
I'm packing up to move so very busy but can certainly see how depression can set in when you all of a sudden have empty days with the occasional lunches from former collegues.
But some things are happening, the pressure is gone... I find I can stand in a lineup without anxiety and just wait my turn because I am no longer in a rush.
What a feeling... like a load has been lifted off.
Interestingly I do not miss work nor feel the real need to know what has happened to the ongoing projects at work....I don't really care, which surprises me.
I wonder what other surprises are in store as I build this new life.
