Those of you who know me, know that I’ve been looking feverishly for a full time job. Although being a full time mom and writer is truly my dream, those student loans aren’t going to pay themselves. I was feeling a little blue about my failure to find financial freedom when I realized that maybe this is simply not in the cards. After all, my first book was just released six months ago with book two hot on its heels. The rest of the series will follow as I find the time to finish and refine. It appears that I may be seeking to tie my own hands.
Although my husband considers me to be quite a looker, employers in a sluggish economy beg to differ. I see the cute young girls with their short skirts and high heels buzzing about their new jobs while I get a simple, “We’ll be in touch.”
So I suppose it’s time to look at this in a more positive light. Yes there is one!
I do have a job as a substitute teacher, which I love, but obviously not in the summer. Using this time off to complete some of my compiled creations would be a much better use of my time than spending hours on the computer filling out faceless applications. I’ll work almost all the time once school begins in the fall, giving me a suitable schedule to write with no weekends. Besides, I love the kids in the ISD and spending time with them is a blessing in so many ways.
So maybe it’s not so bad after all. Sometimes I think God’s plan is a little better than my own. Imagine that.
