not a pity post #blogjune
you were waiting for the but aren’t you?
my reality right now
nowhere to go up in my organisation
cannot go 4 days a week as supervising staff
i am 55 in a few months, and I honestly think age is working against me…
I don’t want to go on a ‘pathway to retirement’ option as it brands people- I have seen this in action
i do interview well – so i have been told
i do want to work
i have my health, my partner, my family, my brain but feel so incomplete at work.
i am looking at work elsewhere. i can’t just leave ..partner is freelance and whilst his work is good and picking up all the time, I just can’t take that leap…
i have considered taking some leave without pay as a step, but again, lack courage on this (and it will stress me and family)
i am trying to be involved in work projects that interest me ( i am helping organise a small conference, I am writing a paper/presenting at ALIA next year) but … just need a new fit somewhere
this is not the whole story
OK- it IS a pity post- I lied!
will the sky fall down? no
am I OK? yes
