I have always been and always will be a completely indecisive woman and that is hard thing for me to cope with. I have my dreams juggling in the air and in my efforts to keep them neck and neck I usually end up exhausted beyond belief. It's becoming clearer now that I no longer have just me to be concerned about. I don't always want to be running ragged trying to update things in the house, pursue a full-time illustration career, pursue a full-time photography career, be a mom someday, fit in time to relax, etc.
I don't want to snuff out any of my goals but I'm feeling a stronger pull than ever to prioritize. Claire at Loobylu mentioned this book awhile ago and I'm reading it now. I am going to take the time to clearly define what I want and I have a great supportive bunch of friends and family that have been gently nudging me forever so now it's my turn to shove myself into some kind of direction.
So I lightly dipped my toe into the water before and now I'm doing a canon ball with a monster splash. It's exciting and nerve-wracking with the economy and whatever else gets in the way. But I have to do it, it's just going to get harder in the future.
