What's next? Aiming for a career.

Following the trail of curiosity was good for the past season. A season of healing and recovery. It was all I could give. But now I'm ready to actively chart this process. I am thinking about where I want to be in ten years, twenty years, and how I'm going to get there.

Have you ever had something so good in your life that you don't want to speak about it in case you break the spell? A new love, an opportunity, an experience you feel is too good to be true and you don't want to jinx all that goodness with words and explanations? That's how I feel about my job.

I think one of the reasons I was so keen to be a homemaker and homeschooler is because it allowed me to create my own alternate reality, a safe and secure home. My work will help create the kind of world I want to live in, the same way I did in building a home and family. That's the goal.

How does one go about looking for a job when one hasn't had "a job" in almost twenty years? Yes, I've worked, as a homemaker, homeschooler, and home manager; a freelance writer and content creator. I've worked but I haven't had a job - the kind where someone hires you, you show up, do work according to their specifications, and get paid - since before my kids were born.

A Path to Employment ~ Series introduction

Late 2017 we faced the inescapable reality that we needed a more regular and predictable flow of income. We needed to be able to count on a pay check, not the whims of clients who did or did not pay on time. We needed more money for the stage of life we're in. And we were faced with a big tax bill that Damien's work alone was unable to pay. It was super stressful and it was a situation that pushed both Damien and I into new employment.

Come and see

Come and see

As much as I use writing as a path to some kind of clarity, like intellectual handholds on the journey of life, what I really want to say is come and see. Experience this. Patreon is helping me do that.
