Ouch dropped WA rank from 71 to 98 plus Not shortlisted today! But there are silver linings in every
I haven't seen a drop like this in a LONG time...
But that's OK. Good thing I'm back and blogging and connecting again. Nothing like a break to renew and refresh and regroup.
I also had news that an opportunity I was considered for unfortunately I didn't make the final short list but I received very positive feedback. Although it was a 'dream' opportunity, I am proud of myself that it didn't get me down. But I was able to focus on the positives of the experience and review what it is I actually do want.
What I'd absolutely LOVE is a full-time income on part-time hours. I had this once but it was in businesses that were focused 100% around me and my efforts face-to-face which became exhausting. Therefore I've spent the past 21 months regrouping and really getting back my business MOJO and here I am blogging better than ever before (despite a break) and still loving connecting here.
Why am I not blogging fulltime? This is not based on fear of success or anything. Just practical. Simply because I don't want to put unnecessary pressure on myself until I am generating regular income from my blogging. I had 2 years of financial strain which I'm just coming out of. And although I currently have 2 part-time jobs that give me a full time income, I am blessed because in both I enjoy what I do and I enjoy the variety. So am living in the moment and feeling grateful about what I do have and continue to strive to improve my already good situation to a better one.
As they say, there is a silver lining in every cloud. So my silver linings for today are:
- Despite my WA rank drop I'm back continuing to focus on my own blogging goals and efforts and along the way assist and support others here where I can and
- Although not short-listed for a dream opportunity it has got me to return to blogging (because I enjoy sharing my knowledge so much) and get on with what brings me joy and not focus on what initially appears to be a failure.
