I am an adventurer.
Not your typical skydiving, globe trotting, jet skiing adventurer, but a more solitary, peaceful kind.
You see, being adventurous means being brave and following your heart.
My adventure happens right here in my room, where I am writing stories, becoming the author that I want to be.
There are it’s challenges; distractions, heartbreaks, financial woes, and work that gets in the way. But an adventure wouldn’t be called an adventure if it was one smooth sailing ride to the finish.
One of my major challenges this week has been my freelance work. Due to distractions, loss of a close friendship/romantic interest and feeling down in the dumps for the past week (months), I’ve let the quality of my freelance work slip.
My client is not too happy about it, but he has given me another chance to fix it, which means less time spent working on my novel.
Luckily for me, this weekend is a long weekend so I can, if my mind permits, focus on getting things sorted.
I currently work 2 jobs, a 40 hour a week day job, and a ten hour a week freelance job. So I’m forgiving myself for being a bit stressed and making mistakes.
But it’s really got me thinking. I need to pull myself together and stay organised so that I can get the work done and still have enough time to write my novel.
I’ve only spent a few hours this week writing it, which is nothing compared to the time spent freelancing and working.
I’m thinking in a few more months, something needs to give. I’m waiting a bit longer to make a decision. Seeing how things turn out first.
Anyway, what challenges have you guys faced while reaching for your dreams?
Hope the stars can work in our favour for the rest of this year.
