Think -- Feel Blessed if you have Health
So many of us lament our sadness and loneliness and lethargic days since retirement.
Most of us have had those days but think.
If you have your health or aren’t overtly dying you, me, us, we are fortunate and ahead of the game.
My younger sister retired and right after, found out she has stomach cancer. Her retirement has been one chemo treatment after the other, one infection after the other due to the chemo destroying her ability to fight off any infection, virus or bacteria.
Every time I start to feel sad for myself for any reason I think of what she is going through and am ashamed of any self pity I have for me, who is pretty healthy.
I can go on a trip. I can go visit friends. I can eat what I want and work like a fiend in my garden. She can’t.
So when you are feeling sad about not working --feel blessed if you have health, for without it you really have something to feel sad about!
