Do you want to feel more control of your life? Nine years ago I owned my owned business at the same time the economy was taking a dive. I felt like I was working 80 hours a week and not getting ahead. I wanted to make changes in my life…big changes.
I decided it was time to sell my business and go to college. I wanted to work less and make more money. I wanted someone to give me a weekly paycheck instead of having to hustle to make a buck. I researched several different careers and settled on one that would feed my soul and still pay the bills. It was going to take 6 years to complete this. While six years seemed like forever, six 6 years were still going to pass and I didn’t want to look back and think what I could have accomplished in that time. I wanted to look back and say, “I did it!”
By now you have guessed that I actual did do it. I graduated with the degree I desired and found myself working in my field of choice (making a weekly paycheck that paid the bills). To skip over those 6 years makes it sound like it was easy when it was extremely difficult. My husband was the only one working, so financially it was a burden, but we saw the light at the end of the tunnel and persevered.
Setting and reaching this long-term life-changing goal made me feel more in control of my life than any other thing I have ever done. It was this experience that made me realize how I am the only person in control of my life. I had heard that before, but it hadn’t fully understood it until I actually took the reigns of my life and accomplished this goal.
For the last three years, I have been working in my field and have faced different challenges that life has presented me. I am a curious person by nature, so when I see a problem I try to research all of the possible solutions. I invite you to join me in my documentation of tackling life’s little (or big) obstacles. My current points of issue are: anti-aging, skincare, low thyroid, damaged hair, debt-free living, health and weight loss, fashion over 40, and whatever else life throws at me! We will have some fun with travel, home decorating and wine tasting, too!
