I feel like I’ve been struggling a lot lately. I mentioned it in a previous post, the one where I shared the 5 things that make me happy.
I’m always tired, I’m majorly fed up in my job – I got moved back into a food department and I feel like I’m in square one again. I feel like I have very little motivation to be there and I think that’s the main reason I’m struggling. It’s draining me. The shifts are awkward, 99% of the people aren’t nice people to be around and I feel like I need a new start in a completely different atmosphere – with new/different opportunities for me.
As I was writing this post a cold called rang my door bell and as I got up to answer I knocked my freshly made cup of tea everywhere. I seem to be having a lot of these moments lately.
Anyway, I recently found a quote – online; I can’t remember whether it was Instagram or Etsy.
This quote has been helping me a hell of a lot through the moments where I want to be anywhere but work because we all have to have a starting point, we all need that little bit of money coming in every month so we can do what we want to do. To me, at the moment all I want to do is design – well, decorate. I want to work around what we have in our home to design the way I want it. I want to start being more crafty, even if it’s just painting my wall, or revamping some old furniture.
But I also want to start drawing, painting, making cute little handmade gifts for friends and family. To do that, I need a work space. To create my work space – which will hopefully be rather big sized desk area in our spare room – I need money to buy the things I need. Therefore I need to keep going in my everyday job.
And one day I will get the life I love.
For now I just need to keep on going. Let’s go and make another cup of tea.
