Even if you’re oh so ready to retire, or if you’ve been retired for some time now, take a few moments to remember what you loved (and maybe still love) about your work. Let yourself feel again all those heart connections between your work and you.
Stepping away from the work we’ve been committed to, we’ve been devoted to, we’ve sacrificed so much for in order to do well, is a really big deal. And no one will ever know how much of ourselves we dedicated to our calling. It’s up to us to honor ourselves and our relationship with our work through our memories.
What did/do you love about your work? What of yourself did/do you lovingly give to your profession?
