Helping Others. What Does That Look Like for Me?

Standard

What Do I Want?

What is my desire for the future?

Big Dream:

self sustaining non-profit to help recycle, renew and help others – My Hope Mercantile as a full time job.

Dream:

Vet tech, working part time in clinic or other agency.

Part time critter care business, with more hours being able to spend nights at clients houses.

Part time non-profit ministry

Part time fostering/adopting

[Notice these are all part time things]

be able to take the yearly trip to Yakima and Iowa

Being available to help others

being able to spend time at other non-profits

Life:

minimal time on Hope Mercantile, collect bibles, school to be vet tech, moving, husband transitioning to retirement. minimal time at the critter care business.

Husband told me I could go to school for the end game of getting a job and making money.

I just want to make enough to support my non-profits and have a bit of mad money.

Husband is worried we will be broke when he retires [we won’t, he is just nervous]

I’m not in a good place to make decisions right now with stress from moving, hubby’s retirement and a health concern.

But I wanted to type it all down and try to make sense of it.

Should I switch from vet tech to vet assistant program?

Do I want to work full time +? [no]

Do I want to be committed to just one thing? [no]

Helping others is the goal, recycling, saving, the back room work.

I do not want to be in management, want to be behind the scenes, actually helping people and animals.

How can I have a flexible schedule and make part time money and do all things I want to do?

Am I being selfish that I don’t want to commit to doing just one thing 40+ hours a week?

Right when my husband will be home all the time and we can finally do a bit of stuff together?

I know I have maybe 30 ish more productive years left. and quite frankly, that scares me. I really do not know where all the time went and not ready to die.

I also know I have been blessed to be able to live alone and work when I was younger, felt good to be self sufficient.

Blessed to have had the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. To follow my little dreams of owning my own business.

I know I have helped others, and someday I hope to see the fruit of all that.

If anyone has any advice, I’d gratefully listen

  1. “Many are the plans in the mind of a man..the Lords ways will be established.” (come to pass etc) I will give this some more thought/ prayer as well and if anything percolates to the surface I will let you know
