Life is what happens when we are busy making plans. Sometimes those plans just do not go the way you want them to go. I am not giving up, but my health is keeps forcing me to make changes to my five year plan to get into my own photography business. It is now down to the point where I have (once again) taken time off due to exhaustion. And, I am (once again) going to work a week on, and a week off. By now, I know that the only way I will be able to spend time doing photographic work is if I spend some time rebuilding my health so that I can function. And, I am at the point where I am strongly considering placing my photography plans on hold. That way I can vegetate on my time off until I get enough rest to go on an active program to rebuild my health. The way it stands now I can seldom hold my camera steady enough to click the shutter. I can hardly walk a block without stopping to rest. And, as long as I am driving truck the situation will only get worse.
I prefer to look at this situation as positively as I can. That is, I am close to retirement. Actually, my doctor tells me that I should have no problem getting 100% disability. I may not live as well, but I will not have the pressures of running a business if I choose to retire instead of start my own business. And, that is a big if. Fact is - I doubt if I can set still for retirement. I get bored easily.
