I have been trying to make an at home income actively for about six months now. It was not because it was a choice, it was a necessity. I was injured at work and was stuck at home. When my work comp decided not to pay after a month, I was stuck. I was unable to work, but I had to have an income. That is when I began writing online. I am so happy I have found online writing, but I do get frustrated.
My husband works his heart out every day trying to support us. I have been looking for a job, but am unable to travel far because we only have one car. I have applied at all of the businesses within two miles of our apartment, but I am having no luck.
It has bothered me from time to time. It seems to be even more frustrating today, but I cannot pin point exactly why. I want to contribute more to our home. I am used to making a full time income of $25-$30 grand a year, and I am now making a little more than $200 a month. It is a big pay cut, and it can be very frustrating at times.
I have to be positive. We are only a little behind on a few bills, and we are both pretty healthy. Things could be so much worse, and I know it. I pray about it all the time. I do not pray to be rich, but I pray for me to be able to contribute more and we be able to enjoy our lives.
There is a plus side at the moment. I am doing something that I enjoy, and I am doing it from home. It gives us more time to spend with our families, and do other things that we love. I know it will take time to reach my goal home income, and I am working hard to reach that goal.
I know that others that have reached there goal home incomes had to work extremely hard, and be patient. Knowing this I have to do the same. I know it will be 6 months to a year before I truly see an at home income, and I am willing to work on that.
I am sure that everyone that works from home knows exactly what I am talking about. There are points in the process that are just frustrating, and can take a lot out of you. If you are looking for instant gratification the majority of online income sources are not for you. It take time, knowledge, patience, and pure determination to reach your goals.
This post was for me to relieve my mind. I needed to vent to people that understand exactly what I am talking about. It has actually made me feel much better, and I am ready to work. I feel my frustration leaving, and my determination coming back. Thank you for listening.
