WHO is getting out?

by Janie M

Hey, are you elders, like me, getting out yet?

I had both vaccines so why am I still in the house? I am still abit reluctant to go out and yet, I wonder why? Did I get too comfortable staying inside?

I know I need to get out with people again.

Are you going out now?

Getting out again
by: Nancy

I am having to push myself, yes. I got to Prayer Group twice a month and just started a weekly Bible study last week. I am very nervous before both, but afterwards am glad I went.

I may never get back to "normal" which for me even before was staying home a lot. I've had both shots.

I've had my first jab for the Covid19 virus, and I'm now getting out and about. The second jab is still a few weeks away.

So to counteract the negative vibes about becoming a senior, or retiree, or modern elder, I thought that my good news story may be somewhat uplifting.

My measure of success has always been based around having a successful 'business" but at age 76, I've now concluded that I simply don't have the motivation or energy to create a new "traditional" business with employees, so my objectives keep shifting.

And I'm grateful that I have found a connection with a pro bono business coach.

Here are the projects that I'm working on - actually I often think that I'm like a Boy Scout trying to puff a tiny fire into something more substantial.

Wendy: Moved the rest of Bernard's post here: Finding My Feet Again, at 76! - WHY? To show retirees how he is thinking out of the box about ways to contribute to his community and his own business too!

Getting Out Again
by: Jeff/ Toledo, Ohio

Wow, I am not alone.....yes I was slow to get out but after being out now things are starting to get better and I am getting out more.

It just takes some time. I wish you well on your adventure out into the new real world. Happiness

Socializing Somewhat
by: Barbara

I am alone most of the time so haven't stopped going to church (which is very small). I have a couple close friends and we meet once a week for a prayer meet and homemade lunch by one of us taking turns.

I have been to a wedding lately where no one wore masks.

I spent Mothers' Day amongst people at church and a fairly big gathering. Bingo started up again last week and I intend to go with a neighbor this week. We can choose whether to wear masks.

I think about half the people I know who are elderly or over 50 have gotten their shots. I have had both.

I have more things coming up this month where I will be out in public.

I live in northeast Texas and am praying for the best.
