The Work That Keeps Me Going

      Dreams. We all have them. They are a huge part of who we are. What we do in our professional lives has a tremendous effect on our physical and mental wellbeing. During the day, I work in a factory. I would be lying if I said the job wasn’t mundane at times. Actually, it’s more dull than it is exciting. It’s what I do when I’m not at my day job that makes a difference.

      I began a freelance writing career a few years ago. There are so many perks to this type of work. I don’t have to leave home, and I can conduct correspondence by email. Writing is my refuge. It’s a safe haven where I can dump all of my problems and channel my frustrations so that something truly wonderful can evolve. Nothing makes me feel more satisfied than when I reach the completion point of a story, essay, or article. And there is no greater joy than seeing my work in print.

      It’s wonderful to be able to do what I love. Someday I hope it will be a full time job. © 2016 Barbara Irvin
