Retirement: I am not alone in adjusting...

by Nancy

I ran across this website accidentally a year or two back.

I come back to it to read others experiences. I can relate to most of the posts . . and at 66 years of age. . . I can tell you that you can't just sit down and do nothing. It doesn't work.

I still work part time. . . and for the last two months my husband and I have started volunteering with Meals on Wheels. We deliver meals on Fridays with extra meals for the weekend.

Some people are very quiet. . . others thank you and have these wonderful smiles! It's very special when some of the people seem to really enjoy our visit each week and you share a brief conversation to check on them. I look forward to each Friday!! It's a small thing we are doing, but it feels good.

The one thing I take away from this website is that I am not alone in adjusting. And from what I can tell, we will always be adjusting and adapting until we leave this Earth.

Change can be challenging and scary. . . but it's the only way things can get better if you are having a rough time.

Take a deep breath . . and take a few steps. We are not alone in this journey!!

Wendy: I just HAD to add the bold... just like my motto here:

Retirement is a Journey, not a Destination!

I am not alone in adjusting
by: Sherry/ NC

Hi, You are so right "adjusting", life is a journey and I love the surprises I encounter all along the way and the new folks I meet.

Friends come and go, but I just keep on keeping on. I needed a new church life, so this am I attended a different church for me. I had been attending the same church for many years, but didn't feel
comfortable or happy there for some reason don't know so I moved on.

Don't be apprehensive I know I think it is normal to be at times, but I am glad I tried something new. Anyway it will lift my spirts and make me a more interesting person.

No matter what keep on trying for new friends and new experiences.

It makes me feel good!

Have a great, interesting and happy day!
