Ignoring the fact that I loathe the light given off by low energy bulbs, I’ve been pondering how a low energy person can shine as brightly as high energy (aka “normal”) people. Specifically, how can I, with my low wattage input, create a working life that generates an income similar to what I earned in my pre-ME days?
Good as I am at having ideas, I’m buggered if I know how I’ll achieve that goal, but then I don’t know how low energy light bulbs do their thing either and I like the symbolism. I’ve got some useful skills and talents available, so I guess what I need to do is work out how to deploy them to best effect on a much lower energy budget.
Perhaps it’s wildly optimistic and ambitious to hope to achieve a similar income to my glory days, but why not aim high? I don’t expect to achieve it overnight (unless my Lotto ticket comes good), but reach for the stars and all that!
Next step: audit my abilities and inclinations. And stop thinking I’m worthless because I can’t work in a conventional way any more.
