Freedom! Week One

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I am officially a freelancer!

I was laid off, sacked, canned, ejected, pushed out, restructured, made redundant, and I'm off to "pastures new" (thanks and apologies for paraphrasing Lilou Mace!)

I have some severance and paid health insurance for a few months, so this is my opportunity to work my ass off to improve both ME and my writing.

Still working on my general goals and guidelines (see this post:
) and now I finally have the time to dedicate myself wholly. I feel as though I might have used the laws of attraction to bring this layoff; in a November or December journal entry I professed a longing for more hours-- or more specifically fewer work hours-- in a day so that I might have some hope of achieving half of what I desired to. HA!

I'm giving myself the leisure of a slow start, but feel fairly accomplished already. I think staying busy and scheduling specific tasks for myself will keep me out of the let's-see-what's-on-tv unemployment rut. I want a beautiful home. I want a beautiful body (I joined a yoga studio for unlimited yoga AND they have a gym... yikes...). I want to bring beauty to this world and appreciate the beauty it has to offer. And I'd love to start getting paid for stringing words together, of course... emoticon

I threw myself a party on Friday, my first official day off. My Hen House chicks were there in spirit, no doubt!

    Way to go D... I am working this week on bringing myself out of my tv/unemployment rut.

    For the past few weeks, I've actually been volunteering a lot more at Riley's daycare, but that isn't healthy either. I've started making a list each morning of things that I need to accomplish and make sure that there are at least two items that either work on my personal and physical self. I think that will help my in the cosmic/karma - esque side of things. You get back what you put out there...
