Guys, I’m having a tough time. I try to keep things pretty light and honest around here. Often I try to spin things positively and share what good has come out of a situation. Lately, I’m just not feeling positive. Over the past two months, I’ve had a lot of rejection and doors closed. Rejection in almost everything freelance/blogging related. I want so much to be able to have a more flexible schedule and be doing something I love and feel really passionate about. I’ve pursued so many freelance opportunities with blogging and writing in general and have just gotten the door slammed shut over and over and over again. If I’m being completely honest, I want nothing more than to be my own boss, work for myself when I am able, and have more flexibility with being a mama.
When Life Hands You Lemons
As the old saying goes, when life hands you lemons, you should make lemonade out of them. I agree wholeheartedly that we should make the best out of situations. But, it’s so hard when you’re just feeling completely helpless and stuck. So often I hear people trying to be inspiring telling me that nothing is forever and if I don’t like something then I should work to change it. Well, I am now going on two years of trying to work to fix it and have had so many disappointments that I am just feeling completely discouraged.
Throw Them Out the Window
So, for now I am sitting here feeling really angry, irritated, and sad about my current situation. Feeling chained and underpaid to work that I don’t love and kind of just feeling defeated. I appreciate you coming by and reading my words. Hopefully someday I can have the flexibility I desire for my family. Until then, this space will continue to be a creative outlet and a joy to maintain and I will continue to pursue opportunities as they come.
