I'll give you five minutes to join in (I know your "Wisdo Chime" just went off if your app is on), and then I'll kick off a discussion for today. I just need to come up with one... (ha ha)

I'm doing better than a few weeks back when I had my first sciatica attack. But today is about Wisdonians. Is there anything I can help you with regarding retirement? I see you're a Helper!

If you're using a cell phone instead of the desktop version (which doesn't have all the bells & whistles, you might be able to dictate your message -- speech to text -- by pressing the mic icon on your keyboard. Then you can speak your message, edit it for errors, and press "send".

I miss the relationships with colleagues and the sense of mission.

Do you live in the same place? If so, perhaps you can have some lunch dates with your former colleagues and catch up on their lives. I'm still in touch with many of the people I worked with at prior positions, both on Facebook and Linked In. As for the sense of mission, that was the company's mission then. But now it's time to consider this: What is YOUR personal mission?

Interesting comment, Miss Lilly! Please share how things have been for you in relationships. And know that there are many! Family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, partners, lovers, and more.

Maybe that’s one of my problems. I worked in California and retired to South Carolina.

Do you know about MeetUp.com? It's a way to find out what's going on locally near you and join in with others that share the same interest.

I think that’s a great suggestion. I’m going to explore volunteering and see where and as what I might be useful to others.

And now perhaps you can find a way to be an event planner for things in your local community. Check with the local Chamber of Commerce. They often have things planned for which they need assistance, and you'll meet people in your community who really will appreciate what you do, as they are there with you. Or with any local "Business Association".

Many people don't feel heard. Whether it's around their specific concerns or those which impact the greater good, and that can be awfully frustrating. Are you familiar with the "Three Levels of Listening"?

That was going to be my topic for today! Now that the CDC has issued their "pundit statement", what are you going to to? As for me, being fully jabbed, I will go out and do things, but I will still wear a mask to keep me protected from the Delta variant. But I've also got cabin fever and want to feel like a "real person" again. Yet the papers report cases in areas where people are unvaxed and unmasked. Its what you feel works best for you and your health.
