A New Direction

I tried so hard to make it work, but I just sucked.

I sucked at working for other people. If my boss was incompetent, something in my cells pushed me to dominate, to take over.

Do that enough times as a woman to a man and you’re bound for trouble . . .

I just wanted to be busy, really. And I think that was a big part of the problem.

If I stayed busy, I didn’t go crazy. If I didn’t give myself enough time to process things, they just never fazed me.

So, I quit.

I quit being in the position I’m tired of being in over and over and over again. I was done letting others dictate what made my business my business. So, I gave it to them. It’s theirs now.

Now I’m going to do what I want to.

If I fail, oops. I’ll get back up and do what I want to, all over again.

Because there is someone out there who wants what I have to offer. And wants it the way I want to deliver it.

Now all I have to do is find them . . .
