Change

Changes happening . . . (pic from Unprofound.com)

Obviously, I’ve been busy with other things for months.

I started falling into depression, which is not uncommon when my financial situation is bad. Things were pretty bad in August and not great in September.

In fact, I was so unfocused that I was unable to do readings people had bought, which doesn’t help matters any.

As far as business. . . . I let things go. I didn’t write, I didn’t work on my research, I didn’t do anything.

I gained back a majority of weight that I lost last year, and inactivity has me feeling stiff and sore.

All that’s negative.

But there’s a couple of things that aren’t so negative.

I spent a lot of energy in the first half of the year working on attracting prosperity and abundance. And in the first half of the year, I did a lot of work on that.

But I didn’t have the energy or focus to do things like actually look for a job or finish my teaching credential. In fact, I was having panic attacks when I tried to.

And then, in June, my old boss called and offered me some contract work, with a strong implication of more to come and a possible job. At the time, I thought I was going to keep teaching, so turned down the implied job.

When the school year started, I still didn’t make any real moves towards a teaching job. I let my sub cert expire. I was tired and didn’t even really want to tutor this year. I decided to not accept new tutoring clients, even though I really needed the money.

I didn’t advertise. I didn’t hustle. I didn’t respond to leads from Thumbtack.

Then I got an email from a client from two years ago – who wanted 2x/week, with a prepaid package. Then I got a call from a client from over 4 years ago, who wants one time a week, but also a prepaid package. Those checks helped me get through September.

Then the boss at the contract job gave me a major project and essentially said to work as much as I could on it. After a couple of more conversations with the boss, it was obvious that she wouldn’t mind having me on full time.

When I was an employee at this company, one of the things I really liked about the owner was that she had a history of figuring out people’s skills and essentially creating positions for them, using their strengths. Now that the company is doing better and expanding, she has some ideas about how I can help the company. I’m going to keep contracting so I can be flexible, but work full time, and have expanded duties.

I’m going to take the time that I’m working there to get back into a technical field, including teaching myself some database stuff. This is a whole new direction for me, and I’m excited about it (tired, but excited).

Would these things have happened if I hadn’t done all that prosperity work when I had the energy to? I don’t know, but maybe it helped. :)

    I missed this post somehow. I'm glad to hear that you've got more steady work now and are working for a boss who it sounds like you really like. I hope you're still enjoying getting back into a technical field.

  2. Karen, yeah, I'm doing computer support, networking, and learning some database stuff. :) I didn't think I would, but I missed doing tech stuff – which is funny since I never felt competent with it when I was doing it for a living. Now, I'm like, “Hey, people recognize that I have some skills!” :)
