After the last couple of months I've realized that full retirement is not an option for me. It does not work for me mentally, physically, or maybe even monetarily. It does not work for me mentally because I realize that on a daily basis I need to be mentally challenged. It does not work for me physically because either one keeps active and keep moving forward or they regress. Lastly, it does not work for me monetarily in that even though I may have money tucked away in savings and in my 401K, I question why I should tap into those funds right now when I am able to earn money? Why not continue to add to those funds for that day when earning money is no longer an option?
So I've worked at revising my resume...which is kind of an experience in and of itself because my HP printer does not print right now...and although it scans...when I try to scan my resume, it does not do it??? Anyhow, I digress, I do have my resume revised but I am not quite happy with it so today I am going back to it and revising it some more. Then I need to contact employment agencies and interview with them so I can discuss my ideas of what I want to do and where I want to go with this. I am open to all ideas and suggestions.
My initial thought is part-time and maybe temporary employment. I've noticed that in this area of Wisconsin there are a lot of small companies involved in food distribution. That last 15 years of my career have been spent in credit management for a food (produce) distributor in San Francisco. These smaller distributors in this area may not be interested in hiring a full-time credit manager but might be interested in hiring someone part-time that will make sure their invoices are paid promptly and improve their cash flow. The plus for me is that all they need to do is pay me for my part-time work and there will be no additional expenses such as medical insurance, PTO/vacation accrual, etc.
Or, maybe I just might start my own credit consulting firm that will do all of the things mentioned in the above paragraph? I need to put together a business plan.
In today's Daily Word was the phrase "My highest calling is to be the expression of God in this world." If I were to say that there were any calling in my life, it would be to be a Unity minister. There is a strong feeling within me that such a step...such a work...would make my soul sing with joy.
Although at my age being a Unity minister might not be a viable option, maybe I can find someway to express my highest calling...to be the expression of God in this world.
So, today I "Let go and let God" and proceed...
