But I said no thanks. I am really feeling good about this decision as I could no longer summon any enthusiasm for the type of work I have done in the past. I feel an incredible sense of lightness and possibility!
Once we are home from our July family visits I am going to get busy with some new things. On the top of my list is joining a nearby women's gym. I've scheduled a couple of lunches to start brainstorming my next activities and to socialize. I found out last night that one of my book club friends has just retired and another is retiring in February so hopefully we can spend more time together. Hubby is working for 4 1/2 more years so we aren't headed for retirement together right now.
Right now I'm also working on a bucket list for the summer. We have lived here almost 16 years and I've never been to the contemporary art museum for example. There is a Latin jazz outdoor concert next Friday night. I'm going to research other things, especially free ones, and get them all on my schedule. I intend for the next part of my life to be joyous and busy with the right things. Have you made this transition or thought about how you will approach it?
