Working at home, I'm working on it

I've been a stay at home mom for a little over three years now. I haven't missed a thing with the three year old and I'm filled with joy about it. When my teen was little, I had to work full-time and go to school, I missed a lot. Now I've enjoyed being one of those moms that goes to all the school functions. I'm loving it!

The little one will be going to school in two years. Since I've gotten a taste of what it's like to be home, I don't want to go back to the daily grind. As kids grow they get more expensive. One income just doesn't cut it.

So, what do I do? I've been selling on eBay. I've started writing for Associated Content. I've signed up to be one of those blog advertisers. I've been looking into blogging for money and freelancing. So far it's working!

I'm working on working at home. I am inspired to succeed!

Finding ideas to write about

When I write sometimes ideas just pop into my head. Other times I sit with my mind wandering. When I begin to wander I have to stop and do something else. Usually, I end up playing with my three year old.

It's amazing to watch kids play and to interact with them. They have so much energy and their imaginations are wild. Did you know that you can build a whole world out of play-doh? Well, you can!

According to the little one, it's quite easy to do. First, you roll little balls of the dough, flatten them, and stack them on top of each other--those are the buildings, cut in half they're cars or boats, and circles alone are ponds. Then you make little snakes, cut them in segments, and stand them on end--depending on how you work it, those can be people, trees, or roads. Once you have your world finished you smash it all up and start all over again. We can do this for hours, or until she loses interest.

As we play I wonder, "why did I buy all the molds and stuff to go with the play-doh?" My question is answered when they hit the floor: they bounce really well, spin around, and make funny noises. Ah to be little once more.

I am inspired my her imagination, because of this, I must feed it.

You may ask yourself, "what does this have to do with ideas for writing?" Use your imagination!

Excitement is in the air

After starting this blog and circumventing my way through the ins and outs of managing my page yesterday I got good news. I began writing articles for Associated Content last week and two more of my submitted articles have been accepted and are being published as we speak. I am truly excited.

I now find myself inspired to write more. This morning, while taking the dog out for her morning sabbatical, I looked back at the house. Above the roof I could see the moon, full in all of her glory. The sky was still slightly dark with the sunrise only beginning to emerge. I felt a sense of peace all around me.

The inspiration I find today is in the beauty of life. What a beautiful world we live in. Relish in it and don't let negativity take you down.

Accessing my memory

My first post. I have another blog, but I wanted more breathing room. I think I can get that here.

Today I remembered my Google account and password. Talk about inspiration. When I found this, and it was asking for the information, I almost drew a blank. I really wanted to create a blog here and BOOM it hit me. From this I learned that my memory is not all that bad, I just have to remember how to access it.

Now I must continue on reading through the site so I can learn how to use it properly.

Hopefully, I will have more later.
