What to do?!
Retired at Christmas 2014 after 30 years of teaching. Spent part of first year travelling. Spent much of second year (2016) being caregiver for mother who is now much better. Am bored out of my mind!
Most of my friends are still working with several years to go before retirement. Have too much time on my hands, suffering from panic attacks, aware of every ache and pain in my body like I am falling apart.
How do you figure out what you would like to do to fill the time? I do dance and art but they are not enough. How do you find your passion? I was so busy working that I never thought about it and never prepared for retirement. Now what?
I'm not a senior yet but I dread years ahead of me without excitement and purpose. I'm single as well which seems to make it worse.
Can anyone give me some ideas? All gratefully accepted. Is there a worldwide lonely and bored retirees club that I can join? haha
Wendy: Yes, join the Retirement Community (right column) then you can find new email friends or write in the community to retirees worldwide.
