One More Year Syndrome

The phrase “One-More-Year-Syndrome” (“OMYS”) has been in my mind for the past few months. I have been wondering whether I have been too cautious for having to continue working despite having the knowledge that I can sustain the yearly expense for at least a decade. Only recently, I came to the conclusion that there is no need for me to bother with this phrase. I have already achieved what I want. I am now in the processing of developing my interest in which blogging is one of my interests. I continue working because I have yet to develop my interest into the side hustle which does not take much of my time yet. I no longer am afraid of retrenchment and go about knowing myself through exploring and experiencing my interests. I put my interest into action and see whether the action will bear fruit. If the effort reaps reward, it will be great. If it does not occur as planned, it does not happen as I know that I have given my best effort and there is no regret on my part.

The OMYS should not be of my current concern. I am too focused on whether I have spent my time to the best of my interest and it’s making me wonder whether I have been spending my time in my best interest. I come to the conclusion that such worry are totally uncalled for.
