New Year, New Beginnings

Today is the first Monday of 2011. I don’t think I’ve kept how much I love Mondays and how it is my happy day a secret. Since the middle of last year, Mondays have given me so much pleasure, whether it was spent with others or alone. There were some Mondays that were challenging and somewhat painful, but at the end of the day, before I bid the day goodbye, I always, always found a reason to be grateful for the day because of the important life lessons it brought me.

This year, I am making it a point to make each Monday count. Yes, all the other days count too, but Monday will always be extra special because this is the day when I will attend to Me. I refuse to work on Mondays, at least till 6PM, because this will be my way of nurturing my soul and keeping myself sane.

It helps a bit that my teaching job is kinda flexible. For the start of this term I will only be teaching on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so that leaves me with a lot of me time. Oh, I still have the preschool in the mornings (yes, even on Mondays) but for the most part, I have stopped considering being with my kids work.

On the other hand, however, I do recognize that I have to start looking for new sources of income, especially since I will be leaving the preschool by March. I want to do more freelance writing work. I kinda wish I knew more about stocks and Forex trading and the like because there are a whole lot of openings for finance jobs.

The most important part, however, of me getting a new job (perhaps I should call it a source of income instead of job since I want to do it from home only), is that it allows me time flexibility and creative license. Besides writing I want to do more of my art…I sure hope that turns out well. Correction: this year will turn out well and money will come in. Agree? 🙂
