From the Mouth of the Lions' Den

Last night my employer officially advised me not to let the door hit me in the ass on the way out. It's been a long time coming, what with the budget nonsense we've experienced since I've worked there, so there's a lot of relief mixed in with feeling like I've been shamelessly ravaged in the least sexy way possible.

Today was a day for figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life. The hubs posed it to me directly, "what could you do for a job that would make you happy?"

There's only one answer these days, and it isn't counseling.

I'm not a brave person, generally speaking, and I'm definitely not a risk taker. So the idea of throwing myself full time into this lion's den? It scares the bejeasus out of me.

It's also exciting as, well, throwing myself into a lion's den.

As much as I'm not a risk taker, I also believe in Fate. I give things up to something greater than myself and let my life guide me. Guide, but not force. I believe everything happens for a reason, and I also believe in signs. Take for example, today's google homepage image.

But I'm also denser than the smog in Smell-A.

So how do I justify following my heart to my practical side...not to mention my husband?

  1. Well, he DID ask you what you'd like to do that would make you happy. So, what about doing that but taking a part-time job somewhere to help balance out the financials until the "happy" begins to pay off?
