Well it's a new year and I've truly been trying to be a new me. I'm trying to cut out a lot of clutter that is preventing me from getting what I want out of life including but not limited to mental clutter that has been clogging up my brain for a long, long time. I've been trying to eat healthier for a while now and I'm hoping to continue that trend into 2017. Don't worry, I'm not getting rid of all my junk food and candy! I'm just eating less of it and trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. My one problem area is exercise but I'm trying to start that up...it just might take a while to make it a habit rather than a once in a while kind of thing. I'm also trying to apply for new jobs but it isn't going as well as I would like...maybe I just feel that way because I got a rejection in record time the other day and I'm a little hurt by that. I mean I know not to take this stuff personally but when you are rejected in less than 6 hours that kind of stings a little more than not hearing anything at all.
I've set some wheels in motion that will hopefully be important to my future. I've purchased almost all of the equipment I need to make a serious go at becoming a voice over artist. I've also begun the process of getting my first book out there for publishers. I'm getting query letters ready and I'm going to do my best! I hope I can make a career out of one of these things or, ideally, both of them. I need to do something with the rest of my life that isn't making boxes which is part of what I do right now unfortunately.
I had plans to travel last year but they just didn't work out...and I'm a little worried that any plans I make to travel this year I worry won't work either. I really feel like going somewhere warm though...winter isn't an agreeable season for me. I get the winter blues for sure. Oh well, if I need to shift my money else where then I have to shift it else where. Car payments need to be made too. We can't always have what we want (especially on my pay).
But things are looking up overall and I've got lots of stuff to look forward to even if not everything takes off...at least I'm going to try! The act of going for it is what is important.
Let's all support each others' attempts and help each other get up when we fall. Maybe things will be less scary than they've been seeming lately.
