I am mystified at the response I get about retirement. Most people start with, “Have you figured out what you will do with your time?” When I say that I haven’t (I don’t say that I am not worried about “filling my time”), I get a lot of suggestions for volunteer positions that sound like work to me. So let’s revisit- I am retiring from work, not life. And life has a lot left for me to discover and explore.
I am looking forward to having time to:
Read, read, read. I don’t think this stack will fill my bingo card but I am excited to read and learn and ask questions and learn some more.
Dig in my garden, pull weeds and tidy for the most part but that is on life giving list.
Pause. Rest my head and my heart. These last months have taken their toll on my body and my soul. I am especially looking forward to sleep that is not disturbed by worry over work decisions.
Off to link up with Carole today.
