Still trying to refocus
I’ve been moping around for the last couple of weeks. I don’t feel like I’ve really accomplished my goals. In fact, I don’t even know what my goals are any more. I’ve been feeling lost and I even wrote about it last week. So, I haven’t been able to shake the feeling, until this morning when I got a wake-up call. A contract I had got cancelled and this was something I was relying on for income for the next few months. The truth is, I was overly consumed with this work and I had completely lost focus on everything else I was doing. Instead of moping around anymore, I choose to see this as a blessing in disguise. May be this is the jolt I need to renew my focus, set my goals and find a way to achieve against all odds.
My daughter’s school was off this week for their mid-term break so, I got to spend some quality time with her. This is a major advantage of working for myself and the most important reason I chose to leave a full-time job. It was a welcome change to have a lazy breakfast in the morning, go out for an evening walk and not have the pressure of work haunt us.
A quote I enjoyed
“The seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.”
~ Ernest Hemingway “A Moveable Feast”
