Retired & Lonely
I remember four years ago when I use to watch all the office employees during the rush lunch hour at the farmers market and felt so sad for them and for me, but knowing that I would be retiring soon made my day and made me happy. What a mistake!
Now I would do anything to be one of those that had to run a grab a yogurt and get back to work because of the load of work waiting for you.
I think I am still sad and it has been 4 years.
Volunteerism, boating and traveling has helped me to cope with retirement since I love to travel. Also dancing zumba and line dance at the senior center has given me more joy since one of my biggest passion is dancing.
Since I moved near Houston and I do not enjoy driving to the City, and it was hard for me to get a job in the City I live and I quit looking.
I remember those days in Puerto Rico when I could choose where and in what law firm I was going to work. It had to be a luxurious office and it had to be a good compensation with all the benefits and it had to be with my requirements. Nowadays I would settle for a metal desk in a little cubby hole, hahahha! Such is life.
I am still grateful for the lessons learned, the best opportunities of working I had during my life with the best people you can ever imagine.
