One of my freelance job assignments was to write about taking risks! This was difficult for me because I generally do not take risks. I realize now that I am taking one of the biggest risks (for me) of all: delving into this freelance writing world! I really have no idea if this is going to work out financially, but I am optimistic. Focusing on this has made me 10x happier and able to get through my job each day. Even though I'm taking a risk, it's a very calculated one. I'm trying to make sure all my ducks are in a row. I'm also thinking about the far future. In 20-some years when Joely is off to college (tear), I won't have to retire when we move to Seattle; I'll still be able to work as a freelance writer.
Anyways, I'm trying not to get too excited by it all. Who am I kidding? I can't help myself. Don't forget to like us on Facebook!
