Hi everyone. Last week was a huge milestone in my life!
After almost 11 years of being a parent dedicated to the full-time care of my children… my three kids are all now at full-time school. Meaning, I am going to be away from them between 9am to 3pm. Meaning, someone else is looking after my noisy, nagging, fighting, complaining, little darlings for six hours a day, five days a week. Holy crap! It’s been 11 years since I last had an uninterrupted thought.
Yes, yes, I know this is not a new thing to the world. But this is new to my world. To me, this is EPIC.
It marks a whole new chapter of my life. This would be as big an event in my life as when I graduated from high school, got my first job, took my parents to dinner with my first pay cheque, got married, become pregnant, or… bought my first mobile phone :)
So what am I going to do with myself? That’s the question everyone has been asking me.
I’m going to be working from home. I’m going to be a full time blogger, as opposed to a hobby blogger.
Sounds a bit quizzical and vague… so I shall explain. I’ll be running a small business in online publishing (my blog!), being the director, editor, creative director, writer, photographer, advertising and marketing person, fashion reviewer, accountant, researcher, email replier, coffee maker, post office runner…
They are all the things I have done before, but now I’ll have the time and head space to write (and create!) better, and more often.
It’s my dream job! I’m so excited!
Thank you for being on this journey with me.
Here’s to a new beginning!
