Getting used to it . . .
Well, it's been a week since my last day of work, but for the most part I've felt as if I'm simply on vacation, not that I'm retired.
But as the days go by, I can tell that I'm starting to get used to the fact that I don't ever have to go back to work. That familiar feeling of dread I would have at night about the work day to come is not as strong as it was.
What's hard for me is convincing myself to slow down. I'm naturally the kind of person who is doing something constantly. But now I am trying to reteach myself to take it easy a bit more because I no longer have a "time clock" to go by.
But if I'm being honest, it may take a while to fully set in.
