Slowly but surely
It's been three months into retirement now. I will be 63 in November. Slowly things are coming together.
I decided to go outside of my zone and started taking an art class last week once a week. The apple and pear were recognizable with instructors help.
I completed an application to volunteer for a non profit business organization in my county. Waiting to hear back. I asked to volunteer for my Temple ..waiting to hear back from them.. I am into politics so I will start doing some phone canvassing for a local politician seeking 2nd term in Congress. I go to the gym and hike once a week now at my favorite spot that I recently found.
I have had to approach all of this as if seeking a job...putting out feelers and seeing what hits.
Retirement is more of an adjustment than I originally thought but I am trying to re-invent my life and don't feel as anxious as I has.
I still feel a bit out of sorts with time on my hands but hopefully that will change if things start to come together.
