I recently had the opportunity to retire after 4o year of working, majority of time was in healthcare.
I enjoy some of retirement, definitely in new transition stage. I miss the socialization and structure of working. I am looking for opportunities to meet people, I starting walking at a local area which I find walking helps me manage my transition anxiety.
I seem to flounder as I attempt to reinvent myself. Reinvention sounds exciting however it can become difficult at times. I find this site very helpful, hearing how others have had same feelings and I really like their suggestions. Ann gave very good advice.
I understand transition of any kind is a process, so I am being patient with myself as I explore my new world!!
