Finally a good day. Okay, that's a bit dramatic and not true. I mean, today was a good day, but the 'finally' is a bit too much. There have been other good days here, I'm just too tough on myself to acknowledge them unless they're good on my terms.

Enough with the confessional/definitional, back to the good day. Today I have finally taken a positive step in taking control of my career. A friend of mine (L.) has told me that I'm not allowed to elaborate on projects/interviews/kissing frogs until they come to pass so that I don't jinx the outcome. So, let's just say that I am taking steps which will allow me to work for myself, or at least to dip my toe into the water and see how it goes....

I will still continue my daily job search for more 'traditional' corporate jobs that I can do remotely (read: at home or in Paris, Hvar, Friday Harbor, etc.) but I'm excited to give this a try and see if it generates a little pocket money or a full-fledged financially independent career. Fingers crossed.

Well I don't know your friend and what his or her experience is, but could I point to a counterargument on the saying something front? Which is put out there by Julia Cameron (I think) and says: ask specifically and out loud for what you want, and the problem solver in us will rise to respond. That includes the universe. So instead of saying 'I want to be an Olympic archer', you might say, 'I want to be an Olympic archer. I need a few lessons to see if I have any aptitude. Does anyone know of an archery teachers, 2nd hand archery gear / place to learn that I could follow up on?' And lo, someone's brother's wife's cousin, does. Bows and arrows just your size laying unused in the Garage, do you want to have them? And on it goes.

This might not work for you, every one has to follow things in a way that works for them. But this 'put it out there' idea seems to fall into line with the laws of physics to my mind - the more stones you turn over, the more things you are likely to find.

And likewise, fingers crossed (no need to say, you can assume it, but I've said it anyway..)
