Newly Retired, exhilarated but no focus
by Marcia, FL
Recently retired from a health professional position after 28 years, most good but some not so good which is why I retired at age of 68.
While I am exhilarated to be out the daily grind, there are so many options that it gives me brain fog to think about this next chapter. I definitely don't plan to work full time again I would like to generate a little pin money just for my retail therapy moments.
My first love is animals particularly cats and I cannot stand to see any animals mistreated, hungry, or without love. Yeah that doesn't get me bus fare right? I am considering volunteering with a shelter or starting my own pet sitting business. My husband who is also retired is encouraging me to use my health care knowledge perhaps online or writing as he does.
I guess we are different from the past generation because we do have so many choices as long as our health holds out. I have a list a mile long to do around home which I love nothing better than being at home.
Anybody else feel like I do? what did you do or are you doing to make the most of retirement. I don't have grandchildren as this usually a big one, I do have a lot of pets. I am not really a people person would love to do something from home.
Suggestions, ideas welcome.
