As I sit here on a gloomy Sunday morning after publishing three blog posts, I sit back to enjoy the last of my Pumpkin Spice Latte that has now gone cold to think about and once again feel blessed with where I am right now in life.
You are exactly where you are meant to be, right now.
I clued in several years ago that I get bored when I am doing the same job 40 hours a week. I also clued in that I simply cannot be chained to a desk. I may be a fat guy but I am one that needs to be mobile and getting exercise. Lack of movement really affects my physical and emotional health.
Although I have completely stepped away from doing web work for others, I will always be doing it for myself. I hate turning down work that pays well and is easy for me to do but I simply had to accept that doing so is preventing me from achieving my goals and moving forward in life. If only there were more hours in the day and days in the week.
I was just looking over my goals again which makes me smile to be where I am right now in life. I am hoping from my 2011 tax return and other incoming money that I will have enough to keep me afloat as I increase my income and achieve my goals.
I have been so incredibly fortunate to have money coming from sources I did not expect over the past year to allow me to figure out who I was, where I wanted to be and to fully recover from surgery. The time off work really helped me come to terms with a major loss of income and moving on from my career as web geek. It has also allowed me the time needed to make my career change which I am so very thankful for.
I would like to be making money from my photography, blogging, and the rest of my network of websites. I am going to start working on building up my practitioner work through the Winter and into the Spring. I am currently working 2.5 (which goes down to 2 in November) days a week as an Office Manager in a Health and Wellness Centre.
I am anticipating that over the next year to year and a half, I will finally be making money from multiple sources and that I will have achieved most of the bigger goals I have right now.
The thought of this really makes me smile :o)
