This post is part of an ongoing challenge to share a little joy I have found each day of this year, and perhaps for the rest of my life. I hope you enjoy it!

Throughout my life I have struggled to connect what I enjoy doing with how I make money to survive.
Most jobs I have worked in, and there has been a lot, have been jobs that slowly withered my spirit and yanked every creative urge out of my ass and threw it out the window.
Working online these last two weeks has been a strange experience, making money through my writing and looking forward into a future where perhaps this can be a way to actually live has been confusing and a bit frightening.
I am not sure where this is going to take me, but it makes me appreciate the opportunities that have been presented to me, the chances that people have taken on me.
When my employer first connected with me, I had zero experience with writing professionally, yet she gave me a shot, and kept motivating me while also correcting the numerous…numerous…numerous mistakes I have made while creating content for her.
And now due to her effort and patience I have improved, and she has offered me higher paying work due to that. It won’t last forever, but it’s an opportunity, a chance to challenge myself and learn, something I have run away from in many aspects of my life.
It is something I am working on improving.
I guess I am just happy to have someone who barely knows me take a chance on me, happy to be blessed with an opportunity to do better, be better. Happy that I have people who care within my friends and family, people who motivate me and worry about my health and safety and are just glad I am doing something that suits me.
Little joys can be found in every moment of every day.
Keep your eyes open for them.
