This is a good time to explore what work means. If you really miss work even on weekends maybe you are using work to identify yourself. You may struggle in this trial retirement. You may have got used to making your default position doing instead of being. Busy can become a hiding place from exploring who you are underneath the layers. The gap between your private self and the self you put out there for others is worth exploring during these quieter times. You are not your work. You exist as fully when not working as when busy at work. What you do at work doesn’t make you any more important than when you are asleep. It is an illusion that work can make you more important. The secret is not what you do but how you do it. Consider making work an expression of who you are deep down rather than a way of creating a reputation or building your image. Try working to serve others and do it with full attention and focus. Doctors are not more important than bus drivers. At the level of being we are all equal and can contribute equally. What you do doesn’t define you. How you do it does.
Try replacing ‘ I work therefore I am’ with ‘I care for others therefore I am’. If you work less or stop working, you are still the private you. Explore before you get busy again.
