As you know, I am without a job. I have been contemplating my future and what I should do. Which is usually the coarse one takes in such a situation. My husband is feeling the stress of the bills piling up. We have two car payments. Which means we pay insurance for two cars that are financed, meaning full coverage in insurance. Of course, like most middle income households, we have credit card debt. It’s driving my husband bonkers and rightly so. It goes without saying, I need to pitch in. Here are my current options and I want your advice.
The week before I was let go from my last position, the thought about losing my job and going into photography crossed my mind. I have struggled with knowing whether or not the “universe” is trying to lead me into the direction of photography. I used to be in photography. It scares me really.
I did convince my husband to let me take this travel photography course for about $29 a month. I’m in the middle of taking it now. I also enjoy writing. But something inside me has died or is dying. I feel like all the passion and excitement of the things I once loved is flickering into the smallest of flames, right before the light is gone, you know.
I want to listen to the nudge from the universe and see where the photo path will take me. I have only donated three pictures to charity to sell for a total of about $200. I have a website and haven’t sold any there either. I feel like there’s a wall stopping the money from flowing into my life. I deserve this, damn it! What do I do?

Mmm, writing! It can be an absolute joy or a thorn in the side. I want to write all the time. I have started many books and they are still waiting to be finished. I believe I can be a great writer, even a novelist.
I have two books presently which I am debating on finishing. One book is about a woman from time past who is rich and mysterious. She lives in a 12 room mansion. There is always excitement there and men come and go. She is not a “lady of the night” or anything like that. I don’t want to give away too much information about it.
The other book has a religious connotation. I write about the power of the Great I Am and how it, or He, relates to us all. He is the Father of all creation. We were created in His (or their, Gen. 1:26) image, after their likeness.
Now, I am a spiritual person, not a religious one. I know this book would bring about a great amount of ridicule and sarcasm. I’m fine with that. But, it’s a book, I believe, we all need right now, in this moment of time. I feel there is a war going on in the spirit realm; because, “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph. 6:12).
So, which do you think I should work on? I’m leaving it up to the universe to decide. That’s you, my friends.
All the best,
KJV Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
KJV Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
