I don't usually write about personal dilemmas here; this one affects my blog (and business).
Red Circle Crafts still feels brand new and full of beginnings. I have some really exciting ideas for things I'd like to be working towards, but, to be honest, I'm not sure what that means for the short term. I've spent the last month or so avoiding this blog because I don't know what's next. And while I was really trying to avoid admitting that I don't know, it meant fewer posts here about the things I have been working on. Emotions sometimes get in the way of common sense though.
One of the things that J and I have been talking about for short term goals is becoming completely debt free. That would mean a great deal of freedom for us to work less and live more. We could travel; I could realistically pursue my dream of living in tiny house; it would be easier to have my own business. A little bit of math shows that if we both work full time jobs, we could be completely debt free in about 5 years. Five years seems like a lot less time than it used to.
I'm not entirely sure how this will change things. Historically, I need some sort of creative outlet or I will be really unhappy working in an office. I hope that this means that I will still make time to blog here. I hope this means I continue to create things to put up in my etsy store. But events like the Holiday Market will definitely be put on hold.
Nothing is changing too soon. We're still figuring out how this is all going to happen. In the mean time I'd like to get back to crafting and sharing it here.
