Standing in the Doorway
I have just recently retired after 40+ years in the building business. Going on month 5.
After sitting in the captains chair for 25 of those years, and fielding calls, seeing clients, handling sub-contractors, scheduling jobs and caring for employees, I suddenly find myself at a loss.
I feel a little depression and anxiety from time to time. I do not miss the worry and stress that came with the job, but I do miss the identity. Who am I now?
I am standing in the doorway and I am hesitant to take that first step.
It is not like I don't have anything to do. I have a farm, horses, maintenance and hobbies, but something is missing...
Just wondering if someone else out there might be or had a similar experience.
