I really don’t have much inspiration to write today, but I do have a crochet project that I’m working on, and I’d really rather be working on that than sitting here doing things at the blog.
Eric reminded me that things seem to go better for us when I’m happy, and if crocheting will make me happy, maybe I should be doing that. Trying to focus and come up with good things to write is just making me crabby, so even though crafting isn’t profitable, it may be the better thing for me to be doing.
He’s right too. The happier I am the more money we seem to make. It’s like my good mood just brings things into my life that will keep me happy. It’s weird, but it proves true over and over again. So, I probably just need to get rid of my guilt and just do what I want to do. It’s not like I have to be constantly active to make money anyway.
I did the math a while back, just for fun, and realized that we have over 1600 articles and over 125,000 products, plus my books, that can be making us money even if I’m sitting on my butt doing nothing. I want the universe to take over and cause those things to make money without my constant attention, so maybe I need to give it a chance.
It’s actually odd when I think about it. I wonder if that’s part of the problem with my income. I want the things that I have done to bring money to me without constant action, because when you’re successful, that’s exactly how things work. However, I keep putting in constant effort with this thought in my mind that if I don’t keep doing, the money won’t come. If I’m asking Ome for one thing and then taking actions in the opposite direction, I’m probably sending some pretty mixed signals.
I do have to keep creating new content, but I don’t have to slave over it every minute of every day. I do need to take care of myself and also take time to do things that I enjoy. If I never enjoy my life, what’s the point of all the working? And I really do enjoy crocheting, especially when my project comes out the way I want. I have no pattern for what I’m doing right now, I’m just winging it. Luckily, it’s working out just as I wanted.
So, off to crochet land I go. When I get the piece finished or at least closer to finished I’ll put up photos. Unfortunately, it’s going to take a lot of hours to get this thing done.
