However, as we all know, life presents countless variables: circumstances beyond our control and lack of motivation and clear direction.
Some days I think it would be easier to be employed outside my home, with a clear To Do list before me.
When one freelances, it is often a feast or famine scenario. Because of my eclectic interests, sometimes I am uncertain what to pursue in the “times of famine.”
Do I find full-time (even part-time) employment outside the house?
Do I hunker down, choose one business option, promote, and push through? Writer? Editor? Doula? Trainer? (See what I mean about eclectic interests?)
Do I compile a promo package, revamp my website, and get myself “out there”?
Today’s Clear Yesses
– enjoy time with my daughter
– power through with some more market research for works already written (Plus, while doing so, I’m always inspired by new ideas.)
– check out possible job ops for my hubby (As I’ve mentioned, he would like to find a job that is less physically demanding. Hard as it is to admit, he’s not getting any younger. Like any of us are.)
– plan the next two days (I’ll have the car and have some errands to run and some people to see.)
– get some things ready to be mailed
– finish February’s Thankfulness List (I’m shooting for 100 recorded things to be thankful for each month this year.)
– read 10 percent of Marcia Laycock’s One Smooth Stone
– maybe start reading a new novel (Until the writers’ conference in June, I’m reading books written by authors I will likely see there.)
– write and post a book review (I’ve really fallen behind in this area.)
– decide whether I need new resources from Vistaprint and perhaps, order them
– visit some fellow writers on the blog hop I’m participating in
– cross two things off my Facebook Follow-Up list (I make note of links I want to read but too often don’t get around to doing so.)
– finish my lower body workout (I got in a decent upper body workout yesterday.)
– celebrate the fact that I took the dog for a longish walk (It will be so much easier once the ice is gone. Snow is fine. Ice, on the other hand . . .)
– enjoy time out with my hubby and daughter (Here in Canada it’s Roll Up the Rim at Tim Hortons. I’m not hopeful about winning a car or the 5,000-dollar Visa card, but it’s nice to spend time with two of my favourite peeps.)
