Busy, Busy, Busy And Reflecting…
Maintaining momentum from the EU Christmas present over VAT. Started getting Allington I.P business Partnership organised – bank and Accountant meetings etc last week and this week I have set Bridport Radio’s Damon Allen to work on shifting my free site on WP – to self hosted – and to changing the Domain name to something more search engine friendly.
I have yet to do more than lay out my files on the window sill for continuing HA – but the fact is the last two years I have been operating with the thought I my head that the business structure – that I’d had in mind when I set out to do this – had been stopped by the EU and VAT MOSS. The dice rolled again though in the Game of Life and I landed on a ladder this time – one that by-passed that old snake in my path – Fear. I realised I have kept going the last two years – even though I did not believe I could get around the snake – and looking back at my writing journals – I do not know what kept me standing here – but here I am – humbled yesterday by reading ‘a note to my future self’ written in one journal –
‘Please, please – don’t give up MC.’
It was pretty strange seeing it – and as an advert for journalling it comes pretty high on the list of reasons to do so – I don’t know the future – I have never regretted the time spent following my dreams – but may be I had stopped feeling glad that I kept going – as if I had given everything up I could and still not turned the page – if one day other folk read my books – I hope they take away some strength to carry on in their lives against their odds – and the advice to ‘write it down and write it out…’ because when you look back at it you will realise – as I did – just how far you have already come and against what odds you have already stood and survived – and that gives you strength to move on again.
