How much of it is a dream?

The last few days I've been trying to find a balance between my job and the long hours I spend there, my time to rest and recover from the stress of translation work, and my efforts to get everything up-to-date again. 

Today I started looking through some of the auxiliary websites we often use to share and promote our artwork and other products to expand our networks or in reality to just get a little exposure since everyone else is doing the same!  I updated my buffer account which I had been using to cross-post to my Google Plus page somehow it had gotten unlinked or perhaps the authorization expired and had to be updated. 

In a way it is a relief to not feel the pressure to support myself from artwork alone, but having a full time job leaves a short time before going to bed to do any artwork and even less time for processing, uploading and adding descriptions and finally sharing those products on social networks so people actually see what you were working on.

Before I got my previous job and was working freelance I spent about 4 hours a day sharing links and about another 4 or 5 hours uploading images, both new and updated images for new products and I'd often spend another 4 hours a day creating new designs. 

I've decided to not let myself get overwhelmed and to take my time even if it just means uploading or updating no more than what I can count on one hand. 

I may not become the full time artist I dreamed of becoming, but I can still share with the world and at least have a small hobby income that might pay a bill or two like before.
