Wow- I hadn’t realized how long it had been since I’d posted here….time has a way of slipping out of your hands during the holidays sometimes. The crazy thing about it is that I’ve been totally busy (working online)- there’s just no way to squeeze it all in (as much as I tried, but it put me in bed with tonsillitis over Christmas). So, it’s a new year and here I am.

I’m just as floored that it’s 2009 as anyone else (and as I was  in 08, 07, 06, 05, etc.)- but I have to say I don’t have any resolutions this year! I’m hardly saying that I’m perfect, but I am, for the first time in a LONG time, perfectly happy.  I have finally found that “thing” that I adore- that I get to do every day, and it never feels like work. It makes all the other things I’ve tried SO worth the grief and frustration I felt when it didn’t go as I had hoped (and yes, I know, hindsight is 20/20- or as someone once told me “it’s easy to see the blessings AFTER you’ve gotten through it”).  I remember having a conversation with my therapist a while back and she told me a story about someone who left their career to pursue an idea/business of their own.  They believed SO much in what they were doing that they (a husband and wife) sold their house and their wedding rings to continue pursuing it. The end result was that the first income earned from what they were doing brought them millions of dollars- literally! (don’t ask- I have no idea what it was….).  I remember thinking as I was starting this journey into online marketing if I would do that? Could I give up everything to pursue it? And I can honestly say, without a doubt, that I would.

Besides the fact that the business is growing, I’ve realized that I really don’t have to give up anything- well, anything that matters anyways. None of my “stuff” matters as much as the way I’m feeling. My kids are great, my health is great, my family is around…..and I LOVE what I’m doing. I’ve actually been trying to weed out more “stuff” so I have less to maintain. I am SO grateful to feel at peace right now that the only thing I’m doing this year is to continue what I’ve been doing, full of grattitude and appreciation for everything in my life.
