Our income did not require that hours from the 9 to 5, Monday through Friday, work week.
Every day became a long continual week end.
Shopping during the day, rarely after 3–4 pm and weekends.
Volunteering because I can.
For me it meant hearing aids.
And having reading glasses by the dozen. So you can place them in convenient places. One in each vehicle, several by the computer in case you can’t find one pair.
When we retired, we decided on our areas of interest; ours were Seniors, children, and pets.
Time to learn new things. Teaching others new things.
You get to decide how to allocate all of your time to whatever you want.
You only make the commitments for things you want to do.
Saying “NO” became more common because you can.
Doing those projects you always want to but did not have the time.
Catching up on reading those books you bought overtime that keep being added to the already growing book collection.
And for me in the past two years reflecting on the past, recalculating for the future.
