Torn between a retrenchment or a new start

via Daily Prompt: Torn

Christmas Day is almost here, yet I haven’t done much to prepare.  I am mostly giving photos and gift cards.  I have not really been in the mood to do much celebrating because the whole commercial effect is not appealing to me.  It would be different if I had children at home or grandchildren visiting us, but this year there will be done of that.  I am not really a humbug, although I’m sure it sounds like I am.  Christmas is all about giving and the excitement it brings for children.

I have other things besides Christmas on my mind right now.  I have to decide if I am going to do a retrenchment or start brand new on a totally different business.  I am torn.  I still have almost a year left at this building.  My current business is failing, that’s okay, I have come to grips with that.  I enjoy everything I have done but it doesn’t make much money.  I can’t continue to let my husband pick up the slack for my finances.  He doesn’t complain, but I’d rather be independent.

So….shall I sell inventory off, in store and online, totally give it up, or; shall I continue selling online and run my business from home?  Do I really want to bother?  I think I have lost the passion.

I have another hobby I love to do.  I don’t really want to sell that stuff off but I might have to.  Once the building lease is done, I will not have enough room to store all of my stuff to work and play from home.  It sounds like I don’t have a lot of choice, but I really do.  I can choose to take a chance and rent a small space to work out of and work partly from home or I can choose to renovate the home so I can totally work out of the house.  Either way it is going to cost more money than I want to spend.  I’m getting too old to worry about finances, so should I really be spending money to make money, which I might not really be able to make any money.  It’s a bit dicey as to what will work.

Yes I am torn.  Lucky for me I have a few months before I really have to decide.  It is always in the back of my mind though.  If I could just make a decision and be done with it.  Unload everything?  Sounds good, but also sounds scary.  If I get rid of everything, what the heck am I going to do with my life?  Become a professional blogger?  Hmmm…  That sounds awesome, but that takes a lot of work and doesn’t happen overnight.  I have lots to think about so until next time,

Think happy thoughts!

I’m Frazzled Again.
