Volunteer or find a part-time job
My parents finally got their last chickadee out of the nest. My mom is retired but my dad decided to keep working after all. She's pretty bored and is having a hard time figuring out what to do...

Find something you love that's in line with the things you loved to do for your family or in your work life. This is a great new chapter, and doing so could open up all kinds of doors!
