It’s been a busy few months for me. With the Pandemic and Social Unrest in the background. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve gone this long without writing a blog post. Almost 3 months to be exact. Geez. Where do I start? Ohh, now I remember. Please read on…
I decided to focus on enriching myself and I left my job to go back to Graduate school to earn a certificate. Where does this leave my writing? Good question. I was working on the 2nd edition of The Leopard Apocalypse, the 3rd novel in my flagship Leopard King Saga series, and on the side I was writing the 4th book in the series, The Leopard Resurrection while starting on another YA project called The Cardinal Rule.
Sadly that’s all been put on hold. Graduate school demands time and financial investment. And getting the most out of my money is paramount in order to land an even better job.
So I wanted to discuss life changes with you, and steps you should take in the event an unexpected situation finds you.
1) Save money: yes, it’s cliche but saving the majority of your paycheck, while being restrictive, it can help pay for unexpected surprises.
2)Have a support network: make sure to share the news with loved ones and trusted friends. Feeding off the positive energy from others boosts confidence and gives you forward momentum.
3)Stay positive: Can’t stress this one enough. You’ll find yourself stretched thin when something unexpected comes along that forces you miles out of your daily routine. But just remember, everything has a purpose and embrace the chaos by thinking on the bright side.
Anyways, that’s it for now. I look forward to posting another helpful blog post, and promise not to take this long between intervals. Stay safe everyone!
