Using my skills again

by Jennifer Donovan
(Houghton MI )

I'm finally coming out of my post-retirement slump. About time - I've been retired 4 years.

How did I do it?

By focusing on the joy of having my daughter living close by for the first time in 40 years and by taking on some freelance writing and editing jobs, so I'm using my skills again.

Such a pleasure to be writing and editing (on assignment and for pay) again.

That was my identity for more than 50 years, and I was so lost without it.

Wendy: Good to hear Jennifer! Very happy for you!
