Done being careful


Okay. So. You know the saying, "Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it"? I wasn't very careful. I wished for more time to work on my novel. That part-time job I thought I was blessed with? Gone. They decided they didn't like the job-share concept, afterall. My first thought was, "I'm free." My second thought was, "Oh sh**!"
But anytime your first thought is "I'm free," what's happening is a good thing. So I'm going with my first thought. I'm not going to pursue a different part-time job with the same company. I'm going to put most of the freelance work I've been offered on hold for a bit. And I'm going to spend a couple of months writing and working in the yard. An opportunity I'm extremely excited to have.

Maybe sometimes it pays not to be so careful with our wishes.
