Your creed for the last three months of 2008 comes from Nikos Kazantzakis,writer of Zorba the Greek and the Last Temptation of Christ: “By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.” Memorize this meme, Cancerian. Imprint it on your subconscious mind. Make it so much a part of you that it breathes as you breathe, and dreams as you dream. Allow it to turn you into a magician whose potent desire is as strong as the longings of ten normal people put together.
Working on it. Oh yes, working on it.
I got a new contract signed on Monday and met with prospective clients yesterday. They are considering the proposal. I noticed that the temp services at the university where I worked has applied for a job for me (who knew!) as a professional staff web master. Might be a little over the top but we’ll see if I get called for an interview.
At least, with a little help from my friends and this new contract I will be able to pay October and November’s rent and car payments. WHEW.
I’m really beginning to dig this working from home. I’ve been working all morning in my pj’s and my favorite fuzzy wool socks. Had a little lunch, threw a load of laundry in, put up a couple squashes and corns as decoration. Going to do my nails, fingers and toes, as I’m going to a party for the 25th wedding anniversary of some friends and there is going to dancing. Fancy clothes requested.
I’ve got one design done for the new contract and need to start the second one. Will probably work on it in pieces over the weekend, mostly in the creative part of my brain and then build on Mon and Tues. I have discovered that I don’t particularly mind working on evenings or weekends when there is nothing else going on as I can go take a nap, drive to the store, go see a friend for a few hours. In fact I feel like I’m living much more of a life now than I did before.
The only thing that is falling a bit behind is my witch gown. Probably work on that tomorrow and Sunday too. As well as some evenings when it comes to sewing in the eyelets for lacing.
It’s become very clear to that I need to be very active in my visualizations now and in the future. Why? Because I’m starting to get attached to living like this and the thought of the alarm clock again on a regular daily basis, being at work before I even get up now, makes me cringe. But some medical benefits would be nice. If things start cooking along I might see about buying my own insurance. Cuz I’m smitten.
I knew we had something in common! Me crabby too!
We cancers always come thru in a pinch…..hehe!
Great news about the contract! I know the sphincter-tightening worry about how to pay the bills, though it isn’t a big thing any more, but there’s nothign nicer than getting signed for the work. I love working for myself – starting when I’m alert, rather than at a specific time of day, being able to go at things uninterrupted and yes, working evenings and weekends can be good too. The best bit is being able to go and do things when everybody else is at work – you’re not with the hordes and it makes life so peachy.
“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.” Thank you for the reminder – it does work, we just need to remember it!
