Okay, so it has been a crazy couple of months here, while I sorted out the direction I wanted to go with this humble little blog. At first, I was going to move, but have since decided to stay put. I always was impulsive. . . . .
Now I am back to post focusing on my goal of sharing what I have learned since leaving my job in 2007.
I have always felt compelled to share what I have learned. I figure it may make it easier for someone else if they can learn from my experiences. Especially if they are like me and seem to learn everything from the school of hard knocks.
I began this journey in earnest in 2007. Took me seven years to get where I am today – totally content and living my dream life. Or as close as I can get to it considering I have muscular dystrophy. Thankfully, I have a mild case and can actually stand up for 20-30 minutes at a time a few times a day.
I learned to follow my passions – sewing and crocheting. I have on the average a half an hour of sewing time and one hour of crocheting time each day. Last year I made more money than I thought was possible for less than 10 hours a week. I am not wealthy in the sense of being a millionaire – I am comfortable. I have everything I want and need, and I have fun every day!
My definition of success is to be at peace, have loving relationships, and be as healthy as I can be, with a decent retirement fund so that I don’t worry about the future. Money is not my top priority. But it sure helps to have it!
