Blogger has not been worker right the past few days, at least not for me. I tried to post yesterday, but could not & now I don't remember what I was going to say. I'm sure it would have been brilliant. Today I worked another restaurant double(15 hours) & boy, do I feel depressed. Not like, so sad I want to cap myself, depressed. It's more like, is there any light at the end of this tunnel?, depressed. I really want to finish my cookbook by the end of this year & get my web store up & running by then too. It's so hard to work on all the things that I love & want to do when I spend close 40 hours a week waiting tables to pay the bills. I wish I could spend my days only doing the things that bring me joy- cooking, crafting, creating, writing, etc.... Am I being unrealistic? Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a job that feeds your passions, creativity & soul? To go "to work" & get to do the things that you love to do. I guess it would no longer feel like a job, but be something so much more than that. I'm hoping that day will come for me soon. I'm trying so hard not to let my bill paying gig break my spirit. Does anyone have any advice or words of experience or wisdom to share? As always thanks for listening.
