I gave up full time work six years ago and I am still adjusting to the changes brought about by that decision.
Many, many times I dreamed I was back at work – usually late and a bit lost – people had moved around and I couldn’t find them.
This week I dreamed my old boss fired me! I was actually pleased, especially when he gave me a cheque for $14,000 (only in my dream)! I thought this might signal an end to my dreaming about work.
Not so! Last night I dreamed we had a work reunion and I woke up with the idea of setting up a Facebook page for my former colleagues. That idea wore off by breakfast time!
I hadn’t realised how much hold the workplace had on me. Hopefully I am ready to let go of the life I had in the workforce and enjoy in the life I have now.
