More thoughts on the downside (that's not really a downside) of doing Etsy full-time:
No matter how much I sell ... how much money I manage to squirrel away after the rent, electricity, cable, health care, cell phone, groceries and insurance are paid ...
I still never feel financially secure.
This is mostly due to the lack of the "steady" paycheck. No matter how much your job sucks, it does give you that sweet comfort of knowing that everything two weeks, you are going to get the SAME AMOUNT of money!
But I guess this is my challenge; this is part of letting go.
I have to force myself not to fall into a routine ... deny the urge to plan out every second of my day.
I have to take a walk in the sunlight.
I have to take deep breaths. Ignore those who lurk in darkness ... shadowing my steps, stealing my light.
I have to learn to appreciate this amazing gift I've been given.
This is my chance at happiness.
