I haven’t blogged in a while, and many folks are requesting a new post. They want to hear some inspiring words from me, from someone who is chasing her dreams, living a unique life, and successfully paving her own unique way in today’s challenging world.
But I’ll tell you the truth.
Someone (who calls himself “Bad-Fish”) made a comment to me saying that my blog was “too sweet.”
This is for you, Bad-Fish.
It isn’t always fun. It surely isn’t easy. I spend my days working two temporary jobs with less than ideal pay to just barely pay my bills. And, I live a bit on the kindness of others (you know who you are). Thank you!
I just heard Pres. Obama say “We are going through the worst economic crisis since the great depression….the problems are accelerating, not getting better.”
Perhaps if I had a crystal ball and knew this was coming, I would have been more prudent, kept my job, and not purchased my boat.
But I am one of the lucky ones.
I do still have my boat…today. And, I do still have my hopes.
I don’t sail off into the sunset each day, with wind at my back and open horizons ahead. I really don’t want to disappoint you, but it isn’t like that at all. Now, I want to be a schoolteacher again, but one where I can still live on my boat. I want the best of both worlds. Is that too much to ask?
Soon enough, I will sail off into the sunset. Keep reading. And there will be more posts in my usual style…”too sweet.”
