I'm filled with a longing this morning to dip inside myself and find what I know I am. I want to work from home. I want to write and create and be self sufficient within the framework of our family. I struggle with these truths, then turn the other way and know I love the check I receive from working outside the home. Money earned on other people's time is easy.
It's hard to earn a check from doing it yourself. Or rather, I should say it's harder to stay on track and get things done that need done to work from home. In the end though, it's what I long for. I want an office that I can go to and write, unobstructed, letting fragments of thoughts pop to the surface. Those fragments blossom and expand into stories and moments that I know I can catch and make into a story.
A different set of thoughts and opportunities have recently been thrown around and talked about. It's something that along with the writing, could make a decent cash flow.
I've been reading a series of articles from The Money Saving Mom, who is a blogger like me. She's been able to buckle down and make all sorts of residual income. She is an inspiration, even though she's much younger than me, and it makes me feel that I can accomplish what I want to do.
