DEAR ABBY: “Searching for ‘Me’ in Texas” is not alone! A wave of 78 million baby boomers will soon leave 30-plus-year careers and are looking forward to an estimated 20 more years of life.
A vast majority of them are looking for meaningful opportunities for the second half of their lives. “Searching” should seek out a nonprofit organization for a cause she’s passionate about and offer her skilled services. If “Searching” doesn’t need an income, she can volunteer.
Finally, instead of seeking a graduate degree, she could look at her local community college and find noncredit classes that interest her and participate without the pressure of credited course work.
