My New World – Week 2

8 December, 2014
quote do what you can with what you have where you are now

So we have landed into Week 2 of this new thing that I am up to.  My new business, The Content Queen.  The place that I consult and or manage individuals and businesses on their social media/websites, write them great content and help to establish their online presence.

A couple of weeks ago someone mentioned the challenges ahead of me.  They didn’t elaborate and I just threw the comment in the ‘yeah whatever’ basket and forgot about it.  Little did I realise that I would facing my biggest challenge straight up.

The car accident after my first week of leave from my workplace has really stalled most of my plans.  I am not driving and the thought of even getting behind the wheel is a little bit hard to work through in my head.

But living rurally and being determined to make this adventure work means that I will get myself together sooner, rather than later.

I was pretty upset that I missed the last ABC 612 Radio parenting panel for the year, due to the accident.  I often wonder if the driver that caused the all of this really understands how he screwed things up for me.  Probably not.

I also wonder if he realises, I don’t sleep that well and have nightmares because I don’t remember even seeing him.  Or maybe he is having all of that happen too.

So yes, my first major challenge is in my lap or my head?

Just the downtime has been hard to accept.  The time is ticking and I desperately want to be working from home full-time, by 2015.

Today I am back in my little office though.  It was refreshing to smash out some client emails early and have my day planned out.  I have almost achieved everything on my to-do list. Yah!

I have Miss I home with me this week and having the opportunity to show her what I do has been really bonding.  I may or may not have taught her to Pin to a secret Pinterest board for me.  No doubt that board will be filled with ponies she would love to own as well as the other topics I asked her to find me, but hey … I might need to learn more about those ponies one day.

Ending the day with Lil D running around the kitchen as I started the evening meal was for once lovely.  My mind was free from the usual clutter that litters my head after a day in my workplace.  I felt like I was in the moment with him and everyone else in the house for that matter.

I guess that tells me more and more that I have to make this thing work.  Even with this shitful setback.

We should have our insurance through this week and hopefully another car not long after that.

Until I check in again next week …

adios.

      Thank you Holly. I think each day my own personal sort of awesomeness is returning. My Husband was getting worried when the usual things weren’t making me ranty. Let’s just say … SHE IS BACK TOODAY.

    Yes, starting off something new as a full time thang can be scarey. Let alone after the accident. Yes I did miss you on the Parenting Panel on ABC612. Best part about working from home, can listen to all the good radio while I’m working. Yippeee!!

    I’ve been working for myself, at home, for the last year and a half, and I still find myself freaking out every now and then. Will I have work?…..,will I have enough work….?, oh, crapola, I have too much work, how did that happen!!! ….back to, will I have enough work??

    Good luck and I am sure you’ll go gangbusters!! I too am thinking about branching out on a ‘new project’ in the new year (along with the current work), so well be freaking out together, babe!

    Good luck, and just remember to breath every now and then 🙂

      It is scary! And it is with tiny steps forward that I go now. I love the Parenting Panel and look forward to getting back for a few shows in the new year and yes that is one of the nicest parts of working from home …radio!

      Have a Merry Christmas Kylie and a fabulous New Year 🙂

    Hang in there kitty! Having no car sucks, but having anxiety about getting into one if you had one sucks even more xx
    I love that you showed your daughter how to Pin 😛
