So what has transpired so far due to me questioning who I am and how I would chose to spend some free time?
I've walked away from the TV. I've fallen back in love with reading. I've commandeered a large portion of our front room for my office and studio. I'm writing. I’m creating. I'm learning. I'm expanding my knowledge base and therefore my horizons. I started a blog about one of my many passions…personal finance, passive income, real estate investing and financial independence. Then I started this blog with my children. We're crafting and creating together as a family.
Blogging started out very superficially though. It was purely looking to make some extra money. It was going to be my side hustle until I stumbled across several books…Chasing Slow, My Happiness Project, Your Money of Your Life and Becoming. These books especially Your Money of Your Life changed my trajectory. I wanted my presence online to have an impact.
Putting yourself out there into the world is not easy. I have a constant stream of voices in my head telling me that no one will want to read your words of “wisdom” or “insights”. No one will feel anything when they look at your paintings. But I'm going to go for it anyway…if for no other reason than…for myself.
