It has been about one year now since I walked away from the business world nonsense. No matter how hard I tried to fit in...I just didn't. I had a stirring inside, a longing for something different.
I found myself not caring about all the things others cared about. I discovered I did not want to talk about what others thought important. It all seemed so shallow. I found myself looking within. I was the square peg and I would never fit into that round hole. Here I thought I was lost when I really was just finding myself.
So now what do I say? What do I say when I come across an old business acquaintance and they ask where have I been and what have I been up to?
I say "I'm retired". They would never understand it all nor do they really want to know or even care who I am now. I could so easily say "I didn't want to grow up so now...
I play in the dirt,
I spend time with my (blogging) friends,
I remodel and decorate,
and I do arts and crafts.
But I don't say any of that. Instead I just say "I'm retired".
