Creative Girl: Chapter 7 & 8 ... Reading with Robin



Creative Girl: Chapter 7 & 8 ... Reading with Robin

Chapter 7 of this book is worth the price paid for the entire book for me. Chapter 7 looks fear in the face ... dead on. I left my job at the Big Taco Stand in a not so pretty fashion. After working nights (3 - whenever) for the Taco Stand and days getting my children off to school and to their $itter. I had major surgery. I had major surgery ... on a body that had NO rest in three years. Seven weeks of short term disability was just not enough. I went back to work long enough to cover my insurance obligations and then this still super exhausted, over worked momma of young ones (old enough to get arrested but to young to really know better) quit her job at the prompting of the voices from the ever present police scanner at the old Taco Stand. Fear of my children's safety and Fear of being arrested for neglect caused me to quit without notice. On the spot. All in one day. At this point ... I even had SITTER fears ... I wish I had an opportunity to leave my last position differently ... but, there were no other options and I have no regrets.

Now the fears are different and I love the way Katharine addresses fear "allow your fears to surface and address them with actual facts and solutions" that's the glue right there.

Chapter 8 is chucked full with some good info on Resume writing and they usually only want one page and that is never enough.

Mothering is a roller coaster ride add working to the equation and you end up with many more dips in the bucket seat for you and for me and like Elizabeth says Enjoy the Ride cause it's the ride of life!

  1. I commend you Sonya on the hard choices that you KNEW you had to make for your children. I rejoice with you that GOD continues to honor your commitment to love and care for the children HE has given you. Now the point about real solutions to real fears, praying for answers for both if us on that.

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
