Trust me, this isn’t what you think it is.
On Tuesday, I was talking with my life coach about my “dream job” that is ABC News. I.e. my fear that I’ll get into journalism with the intent of getting to New York only to find out that I absolutely hate it. She and I agreed that I need other options, because anything can happen and I might find something else I’d rather do. But it’s going to be hard to clear my head, because I’ve been thinking and daydreaming about ABC for so long. I’ve thought about not watching the news at all for awhile, but that doesn’t seem feasible. It’s part of my routine, and I like to be informed.
While I still want to get a feel for broadcasting, I’ve decided I’m going to focus on my writing in addition to looking for things that will pay the bills. Journalism was actually my back up plan at one point. You know, in case being an author didn’t work out. I really need to work on my novel too; I’ve been neglecting it.
And I realize I haven’t exactly held up my end of the bargain. At the beginning of this year, I said I would blog and meditate every day. While my meditation practice has been constant, I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon. So I’m going to blog more and see where it takes me. I should be able to manage posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’ll see you on Monday.
