    I’m an author, stgigrlung to pay the bills selling Office Supplies for a local company. The tension between what I feel called to do and what I am doing (a good job, but I HATE it) is draining my energy. I’m not doing well at my writing OR my “day job, and now I have a multitude of physical ailments mainfesting in my life – an ache in my shoulder, horrible headaches, even my marriage is suffering because I can’t seem to separate my angst from working a job I hate from my personal life – it all feels out of whack. I’ve tried praying, I’ve tried adjusting my attitude – nothing seems to work and I’m literally at the end of my rope.I’m just venting here – not really looking for advice, except that I wonder how many other people feel this way? Can’t we do what we love and have financial security?
