2013 – A Year of Change

Apparently 2013 is a big year – the numbers when added up together make 6, which signifies change.

According to the lady who did my tarot cards a few months back, at any rate!

Whether you are a believer or sceptic of all things tarot/psychic/etc, I still believe things happen for a reason, whether you have a little tip-off or not!

She said that the next 8-10 weeks for me would be fairly traumatic.

Boy! She could not have got that more right if she had been sitting on my shoulder.

In a nutshell, let’s do a run down of my life in the last 12 weeks:

Thought I’d found ‘him’, but I hadn’t;

Didn’t know I was, until I wasn’t;

Didn’t like what I was doing, so I don’t any more.

It has been, to say the least, one hell of a ride!

And, to be brutally honest, not one that I would volunteer to go on again.

But I have emerged.

Battle-worn, scarred, but still very much alive and breathing.

I thought a couple of years ago I had reached rock bottom, but seems there was still a little way left for me to fall.

I am at the very bottom.

But I am still smiling and I am very much blessed in many ways.

I have SC.

I have my health.

I have my pride and self-respect.

I have a brain that still works.

I have the passion and drive to succeed.

I have so much to be thankful for.

I am free.

And, do you know what, since it is  a year for change, I don’t think I’m going to start climbing back up that mountain!

I’m going to build me a whole new one 😉

The time has come…

…the walrus said, “to think of other things!”walrus and carpenter

Unfortunately, not of shoes and ships and ceiling wax, but weighing up my current work with reality.

Currently, on a scale of 1 to 10, job satisfaction rating is 15!!

I love what I do. I work with children from 6mths upwards – different nurseries, playgroups, etc. And to walk into ‘work’ and see children’s faces light up when I walk in and for them to be eager to share their thoughts about what they’ve been doing, or some piece of news gives me the best feeling in the world.

On the flip side though, I am currently, and have been for the last 2 years working for less than nothing, which is not an ideal situation for a single mother who needs to provide.

And nothing I do seems to increase the coffers.

So I am pretty much at that crossroads where I have to make a decision. Do I:

a) carry on as I am at present – loving the job but continually stressed about trying to find ways to earn something;

b) refine what I’m doing at present, find a different avenue, based on the same theme, but not tied to any franchise (which cuts out fees, which would increase monthly revenue and remove the stress levels (well at least abate them a little))

c) Do something else! Either go back to what I did BC (Before Child), or find something else to do…

I am the world’s worst when it comes to decision-making.

But I’ve got to do something, right?
