  1. After a lifetime of overworking and setting high standards for myself retirement has been a challenge. I am getting the hang of not “having to do” so much. Taking days where I choose to do nothing, or very little, is foreign to me, but I am learning. I will say that there are more things I want to do than I have the energy to do. Oh to have the energy of the younger me.

      1. The last time I had time that felt free was when I was young before I had children. When I wasn’t at work I had nothing I needed to do and no obligations. Now, I can never think I have all the time in the world. Just because I’m not getting paid for what I do doesn’t mean I don’t have too much I feel the need to do and not nearly enough time to do it in. My children, my family, still needs things from me as well and also my friends. And someone has to clean the bathroom.

          1. I don’t mind actually. But I don’t know anyone who has the time they imagined in retirement. My parents were going to travel. And then my mother got Alzheimers. My father, who had done nothing in the house, became a very good caretaker, but that was the rest of his life basically.

  2. Yes you will! More time to write poetry, sleep, and dance to your favorite music, or anything else you fancy. It took me a while to fully appreciate the concept of free time. πŸ€ͺ I have come to appreciate it!

    I almost chose your adorable photo for my dancing post, but I chose the younger sexy man instead. 😁

  3. sorry to bit into your free time – can you perhaps as part of your series on advice… say something how to deal with suspected fake web sites/feels troll-like; I had a few ‘likes’ from some before, and quite a few today. Is there anything I can or should do before this kind of thing gets out of hand? Thanks.

    1. likes are irrelevant – they don’t do anything to your blog or to your account – you can just ignore them! (plus I don’t think you can control who ‘likes’ your posts, other than turning off ‘likes’ entirely, which I don’t think is worth it).
