I’m experiencing the tired that one gets when one works for themselves.
I like Facebook. I like learning about other people and seeing them spout random nonsense, words of wisdom, and just plain silliness. However, lately I have had to read about the vacations of quite a few people, and that has made me tired.
I haven’t had a vacation in over three years, and there is a very real chance we won’t go on one this year either. The fact is that I am a struggling writer, and that is not conducive with going on vacation. I am constantly trying to make enough money to pay the bills we do have, and save enough in case an emergency comes along.
Yes, Living Simple is all about priorities like family and friends, food and shelter, but there is another side to that reality, and that is the lack of money. What if we get sick and have to go to the hospital. Bev was quite sick last week, and I was close to taking her to the hospital, and then we would have been looking at thousands of dollars in expenses that we have no money for.
A vacation? Seriously! We have enough money for shelter and food and that’s it. How do we go on a vacation?
So today I am tired. I am very happy that my friends are able to go on vacation, but I am tired of hearing about it. I am tired of hearing about the success some have experienced with their writing, while I’m still knocking my head against the wall trying to figure out the secret.
Yes, I am tired.
And yes, I am Living Simple! J
