The Courage That Is Necessary ...

After two weeks of emotional torture, great excitement, and serious contemplation of the good, the bad, the (very, very) pretty, and the cinder block ugly, I have come to a conclusion and acted upon it.

I turned down the job in order to continue to grow my business. Basically, the job does not fully utilize my skills and knowledge and I have too much to give up for a situation that doesn't utilize my skills or offer upward mobility. It was in fact a scary thing to do, but the right thing to do.

I am more committed now than ever to Divine Writes because of this experience, which has been an overall very positive experience. It is my own window that I will be putting my office Orchid in.

The courage that is necessary to embark beyond the notion that survival is based upon the ability to rise at 7 a.m., five days a week.
(So sayeth the Colonel Les Claypool)


  1. Good for you! I'm glad to gear it.

  2. Good for you, Nicole. You gave it a good think and kept yourself open to the possibilities. I'm glad you found your way. Isn't it nice to find out the grass is actually greener in your own backyard?
    Now get to work! Oh wait, you're the boss, you don't have to. hehe

  3. C,
    My boss is a hard ass! It's 10:30 and I'm still working!
