Well there might be one or two of you who know that I don’t love my job. Yeah I’ve hated my work as a IT Professional/Support person for years. I wish I could have gone further in my career, but I’ve had a lot of stops and starts due to my illness, which doesn’t look good on a resume. Add to that my many issues with getting along with people, and let’s just say I didn’t set the world on fire. Well my Bipolar Disorder threatens to set the world on fire, but that’s another story. Having to work a strict 9-5 job, Monday through Friday is too much for me. It feels like a prison.
I really love my creativity and it goes in so many directions. I love that too. I make jewelry. I take pictures – pretty good ones, I think. I do silkscreening. Batik. I sew. I love to decoupage. I’ve got all these talents, and I’d love to make them my vocation. There’s this handy-dandy thing called Etsy now, and I’m wondering if I can sell anything there. My secret fantasy is to ramp up my creative projects, and try to sell them on Etsy. It seems like it’s a matter of energy, and marketing smarts. I REALLY want to do this, and transition away from the corporate world to this. I also think it would better support my mental health, and would work so much better to work with my natural energy flows.
If there are any of you who are able to make a living doing this, or something like it, I’d LOVE to hear from you. I’d just about die of joy if I could make this transition. Oh, and it would make a move to Florida ever so much easier. Will you let me know? Thanks. Happy Day!
