Thoughts and Thinking….

It’s my dream to be self sufficient and to not be living paycheck to paycheck while also to not be working full time out of the house.  Due to being on medical leave for three weeks I have finally seen what I can accomplish at thoughtfulhome when I’m not beyond exhausted from work.  As I’ve been recovering each day I am able to do more and it feels great.  I’ve been accomplishing so much (in terms of what I am usually able to do) and I feel so capable!

I also recently discovered Bullet Journaling and it has totally changed my life.  I am planning and making realistic goals.  I am doing things about my goals, researching and making decisions.  I am so excited, so pumped and feeling better than I have in a long, long, long time.

So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and brainstorming.  I’m writing lists and coming up with ideas, crossing some off that won’t work and coming up with more.  My end game is to not have to work out of the house more than one or two days a week, if at all and if I do to have it be because I want to, not because I have to.  So I’m also looking at ensuring that I have multiple sources of income because when it comes to working from home, for most people it’s flexible; based on sales and such.

Although I’m honestly not terribly worried about income.  Not that we don’t need me to have income, we absolutely do.  But, what worries me is health insurance.  I currently have fairly decent insurance through my job, but if I leave there I won’t have it any more, and most places won’t give insurance to part timers and I absolutely need it.  So…. ya.  There’s that.  I’m going to start looking at the state insurance exchange to see how much it would be for me to get on my own, but who knows.  I need to have steady income otherwise anyway.

So that’s it for today.
