The first week of retirement has passed so rapidly I can’t believe it. I am amazed by two things. First, I have totally put my old job out of my mind. I think about the people I worked with but not about the work, the stress, the ridiculousness of some of the tasks I had to do. I don’t even remember why I was stressed. I have let go of it all.
Second, and most surprising, I discovered that it is not hard to get up in the morning when I don’t have to. I am awake at the same time I used to have to force myself out of bed. I have started a morning walking program. I no longer have an excuse.
I wonder what revelations Week 2 holds.
