Aspirations and dreams and whatnot…

Lately I’ve been really thinking that now’s a good time to start a business. I’m blessed enough to have this job that I love, that pays me well, and you know… maybe I ought to use some of that money towards starting a project that belongs to me, a business that I make the rules for, that I have control over, and that can supplement my income.

I’m not used to this feeling. I’m still getting accustomed to the idea that my dreams are attainable. That the possibilities just might be endless. I’m still having a hard time believing I deserve the good things in my life and that, dare I say, I could achieve even more.

I realize that I’m extremely blessed to be in the situation that I am in now, and I’m very thankful for where I find myself. Last year me never saw things turning out this well. Hell, this year me didn’t see things turning out this well. Things aren’t perfect but I know that I am very blessed. Blessed and grateful. I wish I could go back and tell my sad, depressed, anxious past self that it was all going to be okay. And, now that things are okay, I want to do more. I want to start a business. A side-hustle. A je ne sais quoi, so to speak.And, now that I don’t have to sell my personal belongings in order to pay for necessities to survive, I want to take advantage of the present. After all, they say there’s no time like the present. And if not now then when?

What does this business look like? I don’t quite know yet. I’ve got some skills. I’m not totally useless. I somewhat don’t suck at marketing for when I do get said business off the ground. And I happen to have a business partner who specializes in sales of everything that is difficult and seems impossible.

Maybe this year could mark the birth of something great? Or maybe I won’t get around to starting anything? I certainly hope it’s not the latter. Presently seeking clarity where it presents itself, because there’s no time like the present.

    1. Thank you for the utter vote of confidence. Sometimes when I run my thoughts out like this I feel as though I sound idiotic. Seeing your words of encouragement means so much to me tonight!


  1. Whatever you decide to do put some money away in a retirement account. Compound interest does amazing things for people that start saving when they are young. You won’t be sorry, no matter the amount.

    1. Wise words. And I hear you. It’s been something I’ve been bad at over the years. And since I spent most of my savings last year, I really should start putting money away again. Thank you for the timely reminder.


  2. When you said you weren’t grateful for anything a few blog posts ago, that was probably your anxious self talking. I’m really happy that things turned around for you, and that you are feeling better!

    I think starting a business is a great idea! Do you know what kind of service/product you want to sell? There’s a lot of business podcasts out there that are worth listening to as well. Good luck! 😊💕

    1. I don’t recall saying that I wasn’t grateful, but if I did, I do regret that. I’m very grateful for what I have. I still struggle with anxiety and panic. But I know I’m way better off now then I was even just three months ago…

      As for a business, I’m not too sure. Dropshipping seems to be really profitable. I don’t know how I’d set that up though. I guess that’s for me to figure out. lol

      Thank you for the luck!

      1. I remember that you were in a darker place back then. Your blog post had a different vibe to it. If I could remember the name of that blog post and dig it up I would, but I won’t. It’s in the past, and this is a new, brighter chapter 🙂

        There’s a lot of useful YouTube videos about dropshipping. It might be good to start there. Yup, the best way to learn is through trial and error! 😆


  3. I think you should just take the leap and see where it goes. Of course, by that I mean putting your mind and soul into committing for it! I’m sure it’ll be worth it, whether for the experience of it, or something more… take it all in stride. It’s alright to feel slightly anxious before, but things will turn out fine.

  4. Yes! You are an inspiring person. You have climbed one mountain, now go climb another. You deserve everything you want in life. Here are a couple of tips. Focus on WHY you want to start a business, not HOW. Set your GOALS and write them down. Read them everyday. Remember that every failure brings you closer to success. Keep moving forward and persevere. You will do it.

      1. Thank you for your kind words. I’m currently developing a course on personal development. Anytime you need a pep talk you can email me. You have what it takes to accomplish anything inside you. Take care.

    1. I think lack of clarity is what’s slowing me down right now. I wouldn’t say that it’s stopping me, I would just say that I need to decide on details before I just haphazardly throw caution to the wind. I want to do it right, I don’t want to crash and burn in the next six months, you know what I mean?

  5. I suggest you start making mead in your basement. Actually… do you have a basement? Maybe just wherever, then.

    Or maybe make… something else the world badly needs. Lol like, common sense.

      1. I really do.
        I’m considering tie-dye right now. But that’s going to have a rather short shelf life. I want something more long term than that.
