Retirement is a journey --- looking for my next stop.
I retired at 63. My husband was beginning to show signs of cognitive decline and my company offered a retirement incentive so it seemed like a no-brainer at the time. I realized I was retiring without specific retiree plans.
Over the next several years, my role as care giver steadily increased until it was my full time job. Last year my husband died suddenly and after the all the activity around putting affairs in order, etc., I now find myself in need of a purpose.
The question is how to figure that out. I know I don't want to go back to corporate life, but can't figure out what it is I want to do.
