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.
