Welcome to The Blogging A-Z Challenge April 2012! Some of the most popular posts here at The Shellshank Redemption are the Motivational Mondays. So, after consulting the tortoises, we decided to make April our Motivational Month! Please join us for this (almost!) daily dose of alphabetical inspiration. We hope you enjoy it!
* WHEN I SAY WORK I ONLY MEAN WRITING. EVERYTHING ELSE IS JUST ODD JOBS. (Margaret Laurence) *
I purposely did not go out and get myself a “career.” I wanted a “job” - something I could leave behind at the end of the day, something that didn’t suck the life out of me, something I could do and do well but then take myself on home and get on with what I was meant to do.
Sure, sometimes I wonder if I should’ve done it differently. I’d probably have more money, maybe live in a bigger house, maybe have the respect and interest of family and friends, maybe do some good for others (depending on the career.) But would I have been happy? Maybe. Maybe not.
One thing I know for sure, though, is that I would much rather wonder if I should’ve had another career than wonder if I should’ve pursued my writing the way I always wanted.
