Amy, that was a fairly courageous (and as Zach said, ‘resonating’) post. I don’t know what your goals and aspirations are, but I do know that mine require a significant level of self-promotion, and I despise that. “Hey look at me! Listen to me!”
I will continue to put in the required effort, put my left foot in front of my right, work “the system,” but I will not become a slave to it. “Success,” however we define it, is in God’s hands. If it is to be, he will cause it. If not, he will prevent it. In either case, I’ll walk the path in front of me.
