We are halfway through 2020. I think it's time to wake up.

Last Update: July 01, 2020

We are halfway through this year. It's been one helluva year so far I'm sure for most everyone. It's nothing like what I had envisioned for 2020, that's for sure. The last two months have just been draining for me with everything going on and so many other personal issues. Every day it's like now what! I must admit I haven't wanted to do much of anything. Personally I have rathered stay in bed and wait for the day to pass. I've really been in some sort of a funk.

That was then it's time to wake up from hibernation.

July 1st, I've decided to pull myself up and return to working on my websites. I did some work this past weekend, and it felt good. But I don't mean just dabbling here and there like I've been, but putting in the actual hours. Realizing that yes, I can do this, I can take what I've made into somewhat of a hobby and turn it into a profitable business. I'm not saying that building a website as a hobby is bad, it's just not what I originally came here to do. In other words, it's time to take it more seriously.

Anyway, thanks for listening to my ramblings. Upon sharing this, I hope to make myself more accountable by committing to working daily to accomplish my goals. Hopefully, I can get a clear vision of what I need to do.

Wish me luck.

Hi Mickey, you're not on your own.

It's hard to make yourself do stuff that isn't immediately pressing. It's sometimes more comfortable to take the easier option, and end up surviving instead of thriving.

I just stood in front of the mirror today and gave myself a talking to. I asked myself did I want my future to be the same as my Mum's in her retirement - on benefits and not being able to afford anything?

I reminded myself that God gave me a brain and that learning new stuff would keep it working, so I would continue to function into old age and benefit financially in the process.

I wish you luck in your energetic pursuit of betterment and all the gifts that that will come to you when you push yourself.

Hi Anne,

I must admit that is exactly what we are doing, surviving instead of thriving. It's been time for me to take a good look into the mirror and move forward. Which I'm working on now.

Thanks, Anne, I truly appreciate your support.

All the best,
Mickey

My name's Mickey and I'm excited about finding Wealthy Affiliate. I really want to live the laptop lifestyle and leave my current job behind. I will work as much as possible to make that dream a reality.

I look forward to meeting the community. I'm sure I will have many questions. Also, I'll help where I can.

I'm a Christian, wife, grandmother, animal lover, and I love to travel.

"Wake Up...Kick-Ass"

I'm kind of in a similar model, but like you, getting back to what needs to be done.

Thank you for sharing and let's see how many others are in a similar boat.

This Global restructure has me baffled so far.

I cannot imagine what this may mean for those that had zero preparation moving forward.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Hi Mickey, you're not on your own in terms of 'waking up'. There must be something in the July air as I've just come to the realization that I can get up and go again, as of now! I've done nothing worthwhile for the past six months.

Here's wishing you good luck. Hopefully, I'll follow in your steps.

All the best :)

Thanks so much, Mickey.
Yes, we most definitely can do this thing!
I've been feeling much more positive today and I believe your post has helped me to wake up and recognize that 'just thinking' and 'not doing' will get me nowhere.
All the best to you, too.

Valerie, I'm so glad my post was able to help you and you are feeling more positive. I know with myself I tend to overthink things. I've been slow to put it into action. But that's going to change for the both of us.

Have a wonderful weekend.
All the best,
Mickey

Oh yes, Mickey. Overthinking is my biggest stumbling block which is something I must, and will overcome. Positive thoughts are now my aim.

Thanks for your support, Mickey, and you have a wonderful weekend too.

Hello,
I know what you mean,
and will get there
I also highly believe that hobby
are things that we are passionate about,
and most Hobby becomes a style of life
and if is a successful one,
then it's like hitting two pigeons with one bullet.

Let's get back into it,
and visualize our own future

have a good day
