I am only a few days from beginning.
Two years ago (I think), I took a job that was not supposed to last two years. I took a job, because I had taken a year off from “real work” to teach yoga and write full-time. When money got tight, a friend recommended I work with her fixing computers. So, I did.
The small company that hired me was immediately bought out by a bigger company, and basically, it sucked the fun out the job.
I have the luxury of leaving this job for a number of reasons, but the one that is keeping me from throwing up from fear is that I have multiple sources of income. I never stopped teaching, and I have never stopped writing. Money got tight before, but the money didn’t disappear.
As I have worked at the day job, I have put myself out there to write blogs, articles, and have started writing books (none published yet, but this is the year). I have also been teaching my regular classes and have gained some private clients and scheduled more classes to begin soon.
Basically, I am doing okay. Not rich. I can pay my bills.
This time will be different.
