My stats at Medium have gone down somewhat. My article about “stop telling us we can all be millionaires” is by far my most popular so far.
But I wrote an article tonight about the negative aspects of gifted education and that represents a substantial victory for me. I first started thinking about that article when my oldest was a baby.
I don’t know what’s going to happen with my writing career from here and in fact, I’m just playing it by ear. But I’m really excited that I’m doing work that finally feels meaningful to me and I’m going to try hard to keep that going.
I also talked to my therapist today about wanting to get my spending under control and start saving more money. She had some helpful tips and suggestions, including that I try to think about what emotions I’m feeling when I want to shop. Right now, I really want a new purse, but I couldn’t identify my feelings about why so that made it easier to resist (for now.)
