Well this week has been full of frustration, victories, enlightenment and conquest.  I learned, unfortunately, how to deal with picky clients that refuse to communicate what they actually want.  I still have time to finish exactly what they want, but the emails, accusations and general negativity left me a little bummed, but luckily I had a job from another client to do, a transcription.  The speaker in the audio file was beyond wise, and even though he was speaking of his own experiences, I found it calming and comforting with my current situation.  And armed with this new sense of calm, I am able to tackle the strenuous job and see it through to the end.  And learned an important lesson on what to look for in a client and when applying to freelance jobs.

I would also like to touch on the support that I have received from my family, which has been outstanding.  From advice, to patience and understanding, to providing the necessary distractions to allow me to recharge, they have been immensely supportive and my biggest fans.  This last year, after deciding to start down this path has been rough and intense, but that stress has been eased by loving family.  A shout out to all of you, I love you all dearly.
