What Next

Yesterday was less than a great day, actually it was a melt down day for me (and us!). We had to go somewhere we didn’t want to go and now we are wondering what next?

It’s A Good Wake Up Call.

While we were in Queensland we never thought about NOT working in any state! David is so very talented and can pick up work wherever he goes – usually he can walk into a place, ask for work and start the next day.

If not then I can walk into any aged care facility job and start within a week.

Not so far in the Wollongong area – we have tried every single place that we can think of, including places we would never think to ask for a job!

We Live In Alice In Wonderland

We really do. We have fallen down into a magical hole! Where Alice’s adventures under ground is now our reality.

We live in a place where the permanent residents can feed the rabbits by hand, the ducks swim up close to the water edge and there is abundant seafood within walking distance of where we are parked.

The rabbits are hand feed

The Rabbits Are Used To Be Hand Feed.

Its magical, and surreal.

Yet we are not sure what we can do – it’s a catch 22. We need to be where a Tafe can provide a course for Year 11/Year 12 combined. We need to be where Zachery can easily catch transport to said Tafe…

Yet we also need either David or I to find work.

Today I am kicking myself for not applying so many ideas and strategies that we have both learnt about Internet Marketing, Investment Properties, Trade Markets and so much more..

Why haven’t we created an ebook that we can sell online? We know how to!!

Why haven’t we purchased an investment property where we are making positive cash flow from it? We both have learnt how to?

Why haven’t we taken this blog and exploded it online to reach more readers – there are so many basic steps to be carried out behind the scenes and yet I keep meaning to get it around to doing it!!

What The Hell Is Holding Us Back?

Something I am thinking about in the next day or two while we sit and talk about “What Next” – what can we do so that we are Free to keep on travelling without having to think about working in the Wollongong area?

When will I learn from my mistakes and move on? When will I turn around and say “hey it doesn’t matter where we go to next, cause we can”. Its time I kick my butt into gear – time I stepped up to the bar and raise it higher. I get how to think about creating abundance in my life so that everything I touch turns to gold.

We live with this as our view

I have watched “The Secret” many times. Maybe I need to watch it again?

Sh*T We have made so many huge money mistakes….when do we get it right?

Think its time I started reading more about positive thoughts/positive dreams. And start to think a bit more outside the square. Until then we are off to the beach this afternoon cause our boys deserve to see happier parents than we both have been in the last few days!!

Our boys deserve parents who have their stuff together.

So that is what we are going to do for this afternoon – get our stuff together and fricken smile for once!!

What Next?

No idea yet but we are working on it.

Have You Been In This Situation – Where You Have NO Idea?

Thanking you for following our journey.



New Life on the Road.

    I have not been in this position, probably because we have never worked when travelling. This is probably the universe nudging you to think outside the box. It is challenging I admit. I guess you have tried bunnings? There must be a real job shortage in the “Gong”area.

      Hi Jan,

      We have never been in this spot before – where David can’t get work! Sure is something new to us….he is now trying for work in western australia, Sydney and basically anywhere!

      We sure need to work on our mindset in a big way!

      Thanking you

    Hi Lisa
    I know the feeling you refer to in your post, as we have been there and still correcting some of our past decisions. We must both have adventurous spirits as we sold up 8 years ago and are now living on a Station in the NT. I recently got back to my blogging & am doing the Learn How To Blog Modules to fine tune my skills .Life is so full of twists & turns, some not all that exciting at times.
