More about the workshops!
A lot of the over 50’s hit a certain point in their lives and are stumped with what they are going to do for the rest of their lives. As one who has experienced this feeling of bewilderment, it’s like the process of peeling an onion...a layer at a time.
We all don’t know exactly what we will do after paid employment. Some do and feel as though they’ve been waiting all their lives to focus on gardening, yoga, painting or perhaps writing that book, voluntary work, travelling etc. Some try it and feel underwhelmed, others overwhelmed and the result is that many of us remain in a quandary. What to do next? Where to start? How do I know if I’ll be any good or will be bored again like the last time? How do I discover THAT passion or enthusiasm? And then there are the other third age issues like health, downsizing, unresolved family matters. It’s exhausting to contemplate and often helps to either discuss with others or a confidante.
Often we need a goal but how do we determine what that goal should be?
