and yet again, you write a blog entry that speaks to the exact thing I have been working on. It's getting a little creepy
My question is how do you proceed when you know exactly what it is that you need to be doing with your life but your financial situation is too tenuous to jump into it??
I am recently single with 2 kids to care for (and drive to & from school and cook for, etc, etc, and so on
), and, though I get some child support, it's not enough to support our household. I have been slowly working at my dream "career" (for lack of a better word, maybe "calling" is more apropos) for many years but I haven't figured out how to have it be enough to live on. I have been writing intentions but I think I am too scared to really believe it's possible, especially right now when I have no safety net and no room for a lot of patience or for failure.
Yet, the thought of giving up on that passion and sticking my kids in daycare so that I can get an office job (even one in my field) in order to "make a living" makes me weep hysterically.
I know what I want to do, what my spirit needs to do; I can picture it, feel it, I've done it in bits and pieces my whole life, but how do I make it happen fully in the way I need to support myself and my kids?
