I happily lost my identity as a working person. I agree that life is for living (and not for working).

I admit that I was sometimes unsettled in the first year of retirement, especially with COVID blowing up our new routines, and thought I might return to work at some point. Have now gotten over that.

Can't imagine returning to the full-time grind, and don't see that I will have any financial need to. As for part time work, by the time the health risk of meeting large numbers of people indoors has passed, I will have been out of the workforce too long.
