Retirement and COVID
They say a journey of 1000 steps begins with one step. However that is the hardest step to take.
Due to being ill with the virus and nearly at retirement I gave up my stressful job. Initially, I was looking forward to summer at home. BUT I can't get a state pension till I'm 66 when I'm officially retired. I can't see my family as I'd hoped. Traveling or trips anywhere off. Shopping with no money off. Seeing friends difficult.
Motivation has become very difficult. I feel like I have no focus. Every day I try to plan then I can't be bothered to do it. I have tried walking but couldn't go far as no toilets open.
I have always worked, been busy, and now nothing. I start projects then give up.
I'd had a plan for my retirement. Traveling seeing my family, but suddenly everything has gone topsy turvy and I can't see a way forward.
I realise it will take time and I need the patience to get there.
I know I need to take that first step but to where and do what?
