Today was a hard day. Not hard emotionally or physically, just hard because I did not want to be at work. I wanted to be home, posting on here, cleaning house, making jewelry and listing things on eBay. Yes, I am a multi-tasker. I must have noise in the back ground but it has to be appropriate to what I am doing. Like right now, I am watching re-runs of Criminal Minds (one of my favorite shows), I have eBay mobile open and I’m listing items while typing this.
My mentor discusses something she calls “multiple profit centers”. I am working on it. I am tired of working for someone else. I want to make this work without a job, at least one where I am working my tail off to make someone else’s dreams come true. It is time for my dreams to start coming true. Two of my mentors have children and they ran their own businesses when they were raising their children and still run those businesses today. So I know this can be done despite what all the critics and naysayers tell me. I am working on it. I am not only doing all of that but I am attempting to simplify my world.
Part of simplifying my world is to get rid of things that are just taking up space. You see I have a life-long dream of having a small farm. I want gardens and goats, rabbits and chickens. I don’t want a big place just something small. I thought I found that. I rented a piece of property that I later signed papers on to purchase. It has an old mobile home on it but it is almost ½ acre and plenty of room for what I want. There is one HUGE obstacle. My parents live on one side of me. Now to clarify, I am not buying the place from them but they are right here. It was nice for a while. It has however, stifled me! I do not like it these days.
I want to dress how I want to dress and not have to listen to my mom tell me that it….shows too much, is too tight, does not match, that I need to do something with my hair, that it looks dry, that it looks oily, that my color is “okay”….I want to figure out who I am. I want my children to be able to play outside. I want my children to see me happy and for them to be happy. I want to plant gardens in my front yard. I want to have my dogs in the house when I want them there. I have to change a lot of things in my world and theirs. This is just the beginning of things to come.
