Are you suffering from Rocking Chair anxiety?
Have you ever caught yourself imagining just what you could do in life, given the right time, circumstances, and finances?
When I did some years ago, I got a big fat nothing! I couldn’t see myself doing anything other than teaching until I retired on a good pension (some 30+ years later!) I think some people would call this a symptom of institutionalisation AND a symptom of society.
But then in imagining what else I could do again and again, over a period of weeks, I found it made me feel anxious. Imagining I could do anything, meant there were actually no limits, and that took my breath away.
There were indeed endless possibilities. I could travel, write, engage in adult education … there were no reasons why I couldn’t become an Estate Agent, Accountant, or Nurse if I wanted to OR I could start up my own business in quite literally anything. I felt overwhelmed by connecting with such freedom and uncertainty of just what might happen. The noise inside me was growing!
