That’s my keyword for Spring/Summer 2009.
I’ve been drawing up a list of ways in which I want to flourish. Just a few little (and one or two big) things in my life that need a boost. I won’t share them all here as a couple of them are very personal but here are three of the most important ones.
- My crafting. I want to finally launch my Folksy store. People keep telling me I could earn money selling the things I make and I think now is the time to try.
- My job. I need a change of scenery so I’ve applied for a couple of jobs in web design. It’s my field of expertise but I left it behind while mum was sick. I needed to be closer to home and there weren’t any IT jobs around at the time. Things are changing on that front though and it’s high time I went back to what I love best.
- My health. In 2005 I was diagnosed with a chronic medical condition. Since then I’ve been back and forth to specialists and prescribed all manner of medications that have horrible side-effects. Thankfully the new combination of medications I’ve been on for the past year seems to be working, but it’s still 16 pills a day that I resent having to take. All that the anger and resentment achieves though is bitterness and stress, which I can do without! I’ve decided that I am going to stop hating my traitorous insides and start appreciating them. They might be a bit wonky but they’re all I have!
So there you go. Whether or not I’ll manage to follow any of these things through remains to be seen but I’m going to give it a damn good try!
