Retirement Not A Easy Thing
by Roger o Cox
Retirement: every working person's dream... then the big day.
In a week, I was climbing the walls. I had all this time on my hands and nothing to do.
It's easy to find something you like to do to fill the time, for me it was cycling. ok, the problem was taken care of - wait no not true.
After two week of cycling each day, I found one cycling did not fill eight hours a day, five days a week. Two, I was out of shape. oh, I had been cycling for a lot of years before stopping work but only two or three hours on the weekends.
The real truth for me was I need lots of things to do. Age and health matters when looking for something to fill your day.
I do not cycle anymore. In Jan I will have been retired for eleven years.
Be ready for changes, they will happen all ways. Be looking for some new that you might like to do.
I can fill two hours just taking myself out to lunch or a hour on the river bank looking at the river trees flowers on an afternoon drive.
Think out of the box when looking for something to do. I remember watching my child playing video games as she grew up, thinking, man I wish they made them when I was a kid! Me, at age 67, getting a video game system. I love my fishing game, easy way to fill a few hours!
