It’s been almost 3 months since I left my full time job and I gotta say, working from home is not all it’s cracked up to be. It’s hard. It’s hard to stay motivated, it’s hard to stay connected to human beings and simultaneously, it’s hard to stay off Facebook when I know I have important work to get done if I am going to share The Muchness with The Masses.
But one thing that became very clear to me in the last few days is that I’ve gotten stuck in a rut. I’ve forgotten that this is supposed to be -NAY – this NEEDS to be FUN! I’ve been so bogged down by the BIG HEAVY questions of what I’m doing + being at home almost all day, all by myself, that I’ve forgotten to have any fun!!
So. Not. Muchy.
Last night I went to a networking event. I met some really interesting women doing some exciting stuff, and got to speak OUT LOUD, TO HUMAN BEINGS, about The Muchness. I got to tell one woman all of my visions for MuchnessTV and I loved watching her laugh as I described how I envisioned it, the different segments and guests.
I need to figure out how to get out from behind my computer more often. I love people. I love watching the reactions I get when I explain The Muchness- The lightbulb moment where they I *get* it and say “oh! I have to get a Muchness band for my sister / cousin / friend – That’s exactly what they need to lift them out of this funk.”
It’s my fuel. My tank was feeling close to empty. I pull the same crap with my car, letting it get so close to empty before I pull into a gas station. Note to self: I must refuel myself before that light goes on. Do you also let your tank get down to E before you remember to refuel? In your car… in your life? It’s so hard sometimes, so ya just keep justifying – “oh- I only have to make one short trip, then I’ll refuel. Oh, I can feel the car hesitating but the lights not even on yet…. blah blah blah….” the justifications are ultimately so useless.
KEEP YOUR DAMN TANK FUELED!!!
