For the past few weeks I sort of feel like a balloon with its air trickling out, deflated. I go through the days not really into anything, almost robotic. I have watched more movies and read magazines, newspapers and find myself sheltering myself from speaking on the phone, mixing in socially. Is this some sort of depression? I don’t know but I think I am missing the children, their happy voices, their eagerness to learn, their smiles. They are in fact my inspiration, my reason for devoting 2-3 days a week to helping them with reading, math, social skills.
It has been five years since I retired and I don’t think I have adapted to (do nothing days) yet! Curious as to what inspires you? If you are in the same predicament, please share your sentiments with me. Till then I am counting the weeks till school begins. Hope I am not the only one.
