I would love to have this...
And spend my time doing this...
And even some of this!
This is a moment where I do have a few regrets. Nothing major, It's just that my life took me down that career path which I really thought would bring me satisfaction and all it did was leave emptiness. I now wonder why I stayed with it so long trying to make it all work. The suits, the networking, the meetings, the sales....pppfffttt!!!
I was always wrestling and struggling with who I was between that 'foreign' world and my true self which seemed to be slipping away. And I was always amazed at how others saw me. They saw a professional, not a down-home gal who liked to wear denim and live her classic country dream.
I knew it was all out of control when business friends and associates would actually laugh when my words would bubble up and over for what I was truly passionate about. At those moments, I discovered that I had abandoned my country roots. And I wondered what they, those business associates, had abandoned in their lives.
I didn't want to sit in meetings. I wanted to sit in the grass.
I didn't want to network with others. I wanted go for a hike in the great outdoors.
I didn't want to do paperwork. I wanted to sketch out my garden.
I didn't want to wear suits. I wanted to throw on a pair of jeans.
I didn't want an empty career. I wanted to live my classic country dream.
So I've decided no more regrets. Time to stop looking down and start holding my head up. It's never too late. Everything I have previously done was not a waste of time. It was necessary. It has lead me to a true appreciation of what is important. So I plan to live my dream. How about you?
