I am going to try to go back to work. It’s been several years that I’ve been out of work, I took early retirement due to my declining health, and now I feel that I NEED to work to feel more viable and to give myself time to interact with the world. Plus, financially it will seriously benefit me to even work just part time, as I have planned.
I spend over 20 years in the swimming pool industry. And I shall be returning to my old company to work part-time in one of their retail stores on the sales floor. I always enjoyed the business in general, and I am sure I’ll have to get caught up on the new industry trends, but overall I have mad skills to offer them having so much prior experience under my belt. The pool business is one where skilled workers are hard to come by. It requires a mechanical mind, a basic understanding of chemistry and geometry, along with the ability to explain complicated processes in words that the every day Joe/Jane can comprehend and apply to their situation.
So I am excited for all that returning to work will bring to me. I’m looking forward to being around more people, to the extra money and the things that will help me do, and to just getting out of the house with a purpose! I pray that my health will allow me to meet my obligations, and I am going to try my hardest to not let it interfere with the 4 hours a day I will be devoting to the company. I’m confident that I can do it!
