You know that song that goes, “I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now”?? That’s me the past couple of days.
Since losing my job at the end of March, I’ve considered a couple of different paths:
1) Find a new job as an employee
2) Buy and run some sort of business, like a frozen yogurt place or coffee spot
3) Start my own private practice as a criminal defense attorney
4) Start my own non-attorney business (I have a vague idea for a tour company)
Is “all of the above” a choice?
The fabulous part-time job that I discussed in my last blog post (the one about how I was busy talking myself out of it) will likely become a reality. So, that checks off path #1. But I don’t want to turn my back on numbers 2 through 4.
Its super hard to decide what to do with your life!
And its put me in a bit of a funky mood lately. My “Plan for the Day” spreadsheet hasn’t been working quite as well because, well, I’m just really tired. I’m tired of the uncertainty and of trying to figure it all out. There are so many things I want to do. And there are so many things I “have” to do. Its a lot of juggling.
I’m not whining. I know there are a lot of other folks out there going through the same thing. And I know I (and hopefully others too!) will get through it.
So today I’m giving myself a bit of a break. I’m giving myself a manicure, spending some more time scrolling through Facebook, and just sitting here watching the rain and wind.
And now, I have to brave the wind and the rain to pick up kids from school.
