  •  I've been keeping busy... (0+ / 0-)

    for the most part. Fortunately, I live in a multi-generational household with an adorable two-year girl that I help care for, and it's pretty much my job to keep the house in order. I don't get paid, but I get a roof over my head and food in my tummy (plus lots of attention from the wee one). I'm a creative type so I can rely on my art, music, and writing to get me through. Again, nothing that pays the bills, but it keeps me sane. My biggest concern is that I feel I can be doing so much more, that I'm capable of great things but my life is on hold at the moment. I've come to terms with where I am at, it's accepting where I am going that's difficult.

    •  Please do not "accept" where you are going. (0+ / 0-)

      You must make your future.  Otherwise you will go where others want you - and that isn't good enough.

      It sounds like you are in the right place for taking risks; you have a support system.  

      Good luck.  Please don't give up!
