Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

It’s time to update my profile!
I have worked for a large organization nearly all my life. I have been fired once, nearly fired twice, and as recent as last year, I was retrenched. But I have also been promoted, won excellence awards with monetary awards and once awarded with a trip overseas. I think I can claim to have experienced it all!
The retrenchment was bitter sweet because I had already reached retirement age. So theoretically I should have been sitting at home by my pool anyway. But it was still a shock to find myself with no reason to get out of bed every morning for more than six months.
So yes, I am still on the wrong side of 60, that won’t change, but I am no longer unemployed. I am not certain how long my current employment will last, but I am content for now. And should I find myself unemployed for any length of time again, I think I would do things differently. For example, I will definitely travel.
