In terms of goals I set myself for this trip, I seem to be ticking them off this month.
New Laptop – check
New SD card – check
New External Drive – check
Passport renewal organised and sent, new shoes, new dress – check, check, check.
But I feel like things aren’t moving fast enough. That I’m not saving enough. That January is still so far away!
I think it’s frustrating because it’s so exciting I want to be living it NOW, not planning it for the future. I know that I need to be patient, and that reaching over 30% savings goal is awesome. I am trying to remember how fanciful and out of the question this seemed before I got the day job.
I think I miss working on the design business full time. I miss being able to be at work by walking into the next room. The commute to my day job is a 2.5-3 hour trip each day, and it’s exhausting. It’s totally different to being your own boss. Before I knew what it was to be my own boss it was different, but I have a very different outlook on things now.
It’s all a challenge, and one that it was time for me to face. It is as difficult and draining as I imagined and more. I’ve had that nasty virus flu thing for the second time over the last two weeks, and every time I think I’ve shaken it, it knocks me down again. – That’s probably making the mindset worse.
I just need to refocus and remember the goal. It will be the end of the year in no time at all, and the new adventure can begin.
I’ll be working on some bits and pieces to make this site awesome for the trip and may be adding some fun stuff to the sidebar over the months to come. Did you see I’m going to the Problogger Training Event? I’m so excited! Can’t wait for October!
Things will look better when the sun starts shining again. For now I will just be excited for all my blogging friends off to BlogHer’12 and will keep my eye on the prize.
Have a fabulous week!
p.s. thank you to all who reached out over my last post, it meant so very much to me. x
