When we started getting busy with a number of things here at home (the kids’ enrollment, making sure that they have everything that they need for school, etc), I knew that I wouldn’t have that much time to blog. Although I was still able to stay updated on what’s happening online, I couldn’t find the time to update my blogs. Although I din’t plan on going on a hiatus, I must say that I ‘m glad that I took break because it has a been awhile since I had one (the last one was after I had surgery over three years ago).
The break also allowed me to think about what I want to do particularly with want I want to do to increase my earning potential online. Earning from home is something that I want to do full time and I know that in order to have a stable online career that will allow me to earn more, I will have to work really hard on acquring the knowledge and skills that are necessary. I started exploring the different possibilities that are out there. I realized that I if want things to change/to get better, change would have to start with me. I have actually set new goals for myself and I am really excited about it. I also realized that in order to realize these goals, I would have to make sure that I have all the necessary tools that I need. Having the right mindset is important which is why I have started viewing videos and reading books and blogs that will help me develop a positive mental attitude. I have also started taking online classes that will allow me to acquire the skills that I will need for the online career that I want to pursue. My excitement about this new phase in my life has actually inspired my kids to set new goals for themselves as well. My youngest wants to have a better ranking in class that he has been studying extra hard for their upcoming exams. He has also expressed his interest in taking music classes next summer. He said we may have to save for a musical instrument such as a guitar or a drum set. Whatever their goals may be, I told them that we provide them with all the assistance and support that they need. I also reminded them that they have to make a ‘goal check’ from time to time, to see whether they are still on the right track towards their goal. Anyway, I pray that everything goes well; I know that major changes will happen if I am able to achieve my ‘new’ goals. Wish me luck!
