More Time

I've been quiet here of late because I was dealing with big changes in my life—and those usually take their emotional and physical toll. But now I'm free and more relaxed. It's the first day of the rest of my life.

Because as of this week, I'm unemployed. Or self-employed (though one looks like the other just now).

I left my day job of eight years last week, and I couldn't be happier. Though I'll miss my co-workers and the steady paycheck, I've grown tired of ... well, just tired.

For many years now, the common refrain in my head has been, "if I just had more time." I'd contemplate a long-weekend mystery convention and think about how tired I'd be on the way to it, because I'd be working right up until the plane flight, and then think of how tired I'd be on the Monday going back to work, because I'd be returning Sunday evening.

Mind you, I'm not someone who can go-go-go every minute of the day. I need considerable down-time, both physical and mental. (See: introverts who need quiet, alone time to recharge, though they enjoy being social.)

But now I'm going to have all the flexibility and time I want. I'm re-launching my freelance/contract writing business (TK Communications), and I'll be working on building my business over the next weeks and months. (So if you know of anyone who needs marketing, tech, or other material written, let me know!)

I'll also be working more regularly (and quickly) on Kate's next adventure. I'll also be more attentive to social media and blogs. And I'll hopefully have more time to take care of a lot of the details I let slide over the past months (ok, years).

We'll see how it all turns out, but I am hopeful. On to a new adventure!

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I can't believe no one commented on this news! Well, er, um, I must confess. I'm as far behind as you are, if not further. I hate jumping over the details to get things done. I feel like I'm missing out. Now I'm on disability but Bill is so busy being the Tax Man that there's not much help coming from that direction. Don't feel alone in those trenches in the sand in that lovely photo. I'll be one row over (zoooooom). Sandie
