First of all, thank you to those of you who took the time to email me your thoughts re my struggling to find myself. Is there such a thing as a late-life crisis? If there is, I’m right in the middle of it. I’m in the fall of my life, on a road to who knows where.
Here I was this morning, thinking I don’t care about any of my stuff and all I want is to find my purpose. And then this afternoon my coffee had no cream or sugar (doctor’s orders). All of a sudden I sure cared about ‘stuff’ again. I’m beginning to think that simplifying my life isn’t going to be as easy as it sounds.
I am making progress though. My husband and I have cancelled cable tv in favor of Internet TV, opted for an Internet home phone, and switched to a small local Internet provider. Now if we feel the need to watch a program, ‘I Love Lucy’ is a click away. Plus no commercials – that’s my hubby’s favourite part. Since we volunteer as well, we don’t have a lot of time to spare anyway.
As for business, I’ve decided to wait until September to start any kind of membership program. Until then, I’m going to concentrate on my weekly podcast, updating and creating new Udemy courses to sell, and start writing a few guides to go with the courses. That should keep me busy over the next five months.
What about you? Are you finding meaning in your day? For me, that often means taking a few minutes to be thankful for what I have and treating other people in a way that gives them reason to be thankful too.
Have a great rest of the week,
