One down, 6 to go...
Interestingly enough, while I was praying last night, I felt prompted to start a fast. While I started it, the words flowed freely as the code from my fingers on a good day. :)
I fasted that I might not be so friggin' scared about finding employment. I fasted that I might know what to do to make ends meet while I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Lots of other things came to mind as I communed with heaven for that short time.
It was good to fast again... And, as usual, it was good to break the fast with my wife's scrumptuous cooking! She made us some wonderful chicken and rice casserole. I also had a salad, some cheese potatoes, some cottage cheese, and a whole lot of wonderful strawberry drink. I washed it all down with a good ol' homemade graham cracker milkshake with a touch of chocolate sauce. Heh... It tasted pretty good.
Anyway... Today I woke up and decided to work for free today due to some dishonest decisions I had made that had been bothering me. It felt SO good to finally get that off my chest. I guess fasting *does* work. Normally I'm pretty worried about money and take every opportunity I can to make it. Today I didn't even care that I was working for free. In fact, it made me feel pretty darned good. Such is life while keeping the commandments, I'm sure.
So.... How am I doing with my resolution? I'd say pretty good so far. It was pretty easy today because of the inherent spiritual lift a fast gives me... We'll see how tomorrow goes. I'm guessing it'll go pretty good. I can say that today, I made 99% of my decisions based on uplifting and strengthening my family. Hopefully it doesn't go down too much.
Now... I'm not sure if I told ya, but I'm throwing around the idea of starting a business of being an online studio drummer. I'm having some seriously mixed feelings about this. Pro / Con list is as follows: I'll start with Pros.
- I know I can do this. I've proven to myself that I can build a website and drive traffic to it. LDSCompanion.org is getting around 3000 hits per day. Not too shabby for 0% marketing.
- I've played ... (15 minutes later)
I just got a phone call from the person who interviewed me today. They offered me a job. Man... I can't believe it. They offered 5,500 more per year than I was making with Webwise. Amazing. Thank you, Lord.
It's not over yet, but the Fat Lady is definitely clearing her throat. :)
