It’s Sunday and it is hot out however there is a breeze to make the heat somewhat bareable. Yesterday was just as hot and I was trying to sell some items at my brother-in-law’s garage sale. I was hoping to make some money. I made some money not very much however it paid for dinner for my son and I. I think it was too hot for many people to be outside, it was 90 or just above.
While trying to stay cool and waiting for all the people to show up I was thinking of other ways to find meaningfulness. I have been writing down the things that I like to do. One of the items that I wrote down is I love going to flea markets to search for vintage jewelry, furniture and home accessories. I’m a shabby chic kind of a person because I like the idea of items being reused or repurposed. Is this something I should look into doing?
When I think about getting into that type of business, I think of all the reasons why it would not work for me. One of the reasons is I do not have a garage to store the items in. I would have to rent a storage space, so that would cost money and you would have to have money to purchase items that you want to sell, etc. All I was seeing was dollar signs going to someone else instead of me. The idea is to make money doing something I love and something that brings meaning to my life.
I love reading about people that have reinvented themselves like the movie Julie & Julia. She decides to cook recipes from Julia Child’s cookbook and blogs about it. It changes her life and career. She writes about cooking both (writing and cooking) are things she loves to do.
I’m ready to reinvent myself I just need to find that one thing I love to do, am suppose to do with my life. I’m working on this but I would love to hear from you if you have reinvented yourself please let me know. Thanks for reading!
