I have been many things during my life: a bartender, general manager, a teacher and a politician just to name a few. One career always led to the next open door. But at the age of forty-seven, I find myself in a curious place – starting over! It is not an easy task to restart a professional career at this age. I have been extremely unhappy and discontented for the past year. I have begun a quest to be content in every circumstance that comes my way. Whether it is searching for employment, raising my children, our home, my marriage, my relationship with God – the quest is to find contentment.
One thing that I know is that I want to be master of my own fate. I have always been an entrepreneurial dreamer and its time to wake up so that I can get started. I have read several books that have pushed me on this quest. Going outside of the box to earn a living, going against the flow of materialism, making decisions based on anything but convention – in other words, living life on my (and God’s) terms and not according to the world’s standards.
I have started this blog to keep up with the day to day struggles and successes on my journey to Being Content. Making the changes in my life so that my family can move on with life. I will post articles every Tuesday and Friday.
