I found this quote, and it really resonated with me because quite frankly I have felt incredibly lonely lately.  I started a journey of starting a business in June, and I thought I was ready for the journey.  I read all sorts of books.  I listened to numerous podcasts.  I joined a local incubator.  I prepared financially and mentally as best I could.  I met other people who were also working on their business.  I created a product and even built a website. 

However, by about July, my personal life took a total nose dive.  I am still working through that chaos, and I suppose that is the primary reason I am struggling with this transition of self-employment.  I thought maybe if I picked up a part-time job that would help, but it didn't.  To be fair, I know the majority of my problem is me, and thus, the reason the quote above resonated with me.

Since July, I have ever so slowly started to work more and more alone.  I have had an annoying cough or cold since July that will not go away.  I now realize the feelings of loneliness and illness are the result of working alone so much.  I need people in my life again, so I am working on that.  

I decided to blog again because I figured I am not the only person out there feeling like this particularly at this time of year.  So, if you happen to stumble upon my blog to read this particular post and just want to say "hi," please by all means drop me a line or leave a comment.  I would be happy to hear from you.

Happy Holidays.
