I have a confession to make… I, Samantha Drane am going to (try) and change myself.
Now, you are probably wondering what in the hell I am blathering on about. Here’s the deal:
I am a long time sufferer of depression. Now I didn’t say that to garner any sort of pity out of anyone, its quite the opposite. I want to use this to motivate me to work towards a better frame of mind. But, if you suffer from depression or know someone who does, that it is a struggle day in and day out. But you do what you have to fight through another day.
My biggest goal right now is to be doing something from home that will bring in some extra $$ while my DH gets back to FT hours at work. I have been combing through a ton of social media lately with regards to becoming a freelancer. In the past, I have written two fiction ebooks, worked in the travel industry and done some article writing. Design has also been something I have been interested in, but with no extra finances to use, learning it might just have to wait.
Now on the one hand, I am saying to myself “This could work, you could do really well!”. But my biggest fight is shutting up the depressive voice inside me saying that I am just not good enough, I will never succeed.
Thing is, I just won’t know unless I try….so that’s what I am going to do.
If any of you successful(or beginning)freelancers have any tips or suggestions, they would be most welcome. :-)
Till the next time guys!
