Sometimes I Wonder...

LifeMarylin27 Comments

I wonder about what I'll do for a living once the boys are safely at school and I have to get a job to support us.

There are the things I'd *love* to do,

like being a photographer (lifestyle!),

maybe being a support person for families who have been where I am,

or even being a life coach. Lets face it, I'm positive enough, and I like helping people feel better about themselves.

Of course there's always the (very teensy) possibility that some wonderful multi-millionaire could find my blog and think I'm an inspiration and donate a couple million to me and my boys...(ok so that's a fantasy, but still, you never know!).

I wonder if I'd ever be able to write a book.

It'd probably be about living with autism in the family, since that's what I *know.

Or about finding yourself, and learning how to let go of the negativity in your life maybe?

I don't know.

Realistically though, I'm a single parent with two children to support.

Assuming (hopefully!) that once Max is grown he can live his own life, I will have to get a job.

I just don't know what I'd be able to do.

No idea.

At all.

It's nice to have ideas and thoughts about what I might like to do, but I've got to think about the reality of it all as well.

Would photography or writing make enough money for me to pay the bills?

Would I be better off working in a regular job that pays well and hope that they're flexible for childcare and such?

I guess time will tell.

All I can do is try to improve on myself and learn as much as I can in the next few years,

and hope that once the time comes, I'll know what to do with my life...
