Realizing The Answer Was Always Obvious
Have you ever heard the saying "I was looking for an orchid, and I overlooked a rose?" I guess that describes my search for narrowing down my niche. I listened to everyone's helpful advice and started to whittle away at the 'health weight loss' or health and wellness niches. I kept searching keywords and phrases, checking all the particulars and then I remembered a comment about seniors or the elderly. It was like lights went on in my brain and I could see so clearly the path I needed to follow.
I guess I was gun-shy after caring for my parents over the past three years, but once the idea unfolded in my brain, I felt like I had found my way. I had been so lost on what to really do that I was passionate about that would be helpful to others, I felt a bit silly at being so blind to the obvious.
Sometimes you can find your niche without help, but for me, I needed to hear what others had to say about my dilemma in my previous blog. Those wonderful people who offered help and counsel to me, I am forever in your debt. You helped me to see what I needed to do and that was to narrow my scope, and in doing that, I realized what I truly was passionate about and wanted to share and help others deal with caring for their parents.
I feel my old confidence returning and the creative juices are beginning to flow again. It has been over three years since I felt truly alive and carefree, I think this is the turning point in my personal and professional life, I have my wonderful memories and a bright and happy future. They say everything happens for a reason, so I guess my rant on my blog wasn't so bad after all.
Oh, did I forget to say, I love it here at WA? I truly do and I think it is the whole community atmosphere that makes it more like family. Thanks everyone! And in case you are wondering, the picture is of my momma and best friend, Barbara Ann. The world's most perfect mother!
