So How's That Working For You?

Retirement, that is.  It's been over 18 months since I had to stop work for medical reasons.  At the time, I was heavily involved in the England Project's Orphan Trail on WikiTree, and as I ended each day feeling pleasantly exhausted (is there such a thing?) I wondered (as so many retired people do) how I ever managed to work a full-time job AND get all this done.

The answer, of course, is that I didn't manage.  Every day made me more and more tired, and the life-work balance turned into work-work-work-remember-to-breathe - and then WikiTree in your spare time (that's a laugh).  In fact, for the first few months of 'retirement' I didn't do much dreaming or goal-setting.  I just concentrated on breathing and getting the days mixed up because every day was the same as the last one.

I have moved on from the Orphan Trail to the One Name Studies Project on WikiTree.  At least this doesn't take up quite so much of my internal battery.  I can breathe between spreadsheets.  So now, when I have been asked to 'spread the word' about WikiTree, I find that I can approach it with (most) brain cells firing.

WikiTree is a beautiful thing.  It saved me from a post-retirement Vegetative State.  Go on, try it.
