Taking Chances

Sooooo.... I recently was laid off... AGAIN... DAMN DAMN DAMN! I enjoyed working for the company i was employed at but I can honsetly say that my feelings were more hurt because I now have 2 kids to care for and no life savings... What am I going to do??? How am I going to survive??? I know that with my background I can find a job NO PROBLEM and I've been dilegently looking but the question is DO I WANT TO? and honestly the answer is no... I did some soul searching and realized that I like many got stuck in a convenient position of being someones administrative assistant because I hadn't finished school and it put food on the table... Did I enjoy it? HELL NO! Y am I answering someone elses' phone, typing someone else's letter, mailing someone else's mail? You're fully capable! U DO IT DAMMIT! This is my 3rd time getting laid off and I'm OVER IT! I'm OVER working for someone else I'M OVER being expendable! Sooo I sat down and asked myself... "What do I really want to do?????" "What do I enjoy doing????" and then my thrifting pleasures popped into my head! I love thrifting, I love finiding vintage clothing, i love vintage home accessories, I love vintage furniture, it would only be right for me to open a vintage boutique!!!  Now, mind you I don't know the first thing about running a business or even starting one for that matter... and my direction may change 3 or 4 times before I actually put things into place but Life is about Taking Chances.... What do I have to lose??? I can be happy doing something that I love or be miserable settling for a paycheck...
