Being 62 and not working, not having family close. Lack of motivation or interest in most things.
Within your whole post, I found your approach to life with the positive reframe so beautiful to read and inspiring. Ahhhh, 62 was a rough transition for me- I feel you. I felt so lost during that time. Too young for this or that support agency, too old to do as I pleased, and no chance of overtime to goal set for purchasing. Plus...so many things were (you know the phrase) ‘been there: done that’. I was sooo underwhelmed too.
Being near my age, I wonder ... do you enjoy cooking? I found the neatest gadget that changed my life into more joy- the Instant Pot. It is an electric pressure cooker (not the old time style) with zillions of recipes now on the internet. Comes with a trivet and cooks safer, faster and with the nutrients intact. I cooked a 12 hour venison roast for Christmas (pardon if that offends) in 2 and an half w/ the Instant Pot. Best darn roast I ever did! Check it out and think of gardening and freezing in a breeze. Beets and veggies ...zip-ity-do-dah. Gave me a project and I could increase my nutrition lowering my depression.
Just a share or thought...not necessarily a good one for you.
ps... I normally agree with Friday’s take. And yes, parents can be a pain at any age or blessing (their choice).
