F**k It. I’m out.
Once upon a time (in 2016 to be exact), I had been sitting, pondering about officially launching this blog of mine. I had been holding off going public worrying about how it would affect the work I’d been doing. Thinking by some miracle my condition would pass (ha).

A friend of mine found herself in one of these unfortunate positions, she chose to resign and is now contemplating life. She’s not alone. In fact, finding yourself in this predicament is unfortunately very common place.
So it was with some fervor that I summarized this particular conversation with my friend. The dilemma we mused was how to work differently, to bring in enough (money), doing that thing you love without flogging yourself at the same time.
