The Way You Gotta Gotta Live Your Life

Current Mood: Insatiable

Don't even talk about the consequence
'Cause right now you’re the only thing that's making any sense to me
And I don't give a damn what they say or what they think
'Cause your the only one who’s on my mind
~ “Untouched” by the Veronicas

I have this lovely book at my desk titled “100 SMALL COMFORTS”. It’s a tiny little book; the kind you pick up while in line at the bookstore, because it’s there, tempting you with it’s petite form and cheap price. The full title is “100 SMALL COMFORTS: Wise and Witty Words to Lift the Spirit”.

One of my favourite E.M. Forster quotes is in it:

“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

It’s a basic truth of life. I am learning, slowly, that letting go is far easier than one initially believes, once the process has begun. This is the most life-changing New Years Resolution I have ever made (or stuck with longer than a week). I am enjoying living in the moment. I have had a few setbacks – trying to get ahead of myself – but I am self-aware and definitely correcting behaviors as I see them happen.

*segue time*, not to be confused with *segway time* (one is a transitional tool; the other is a ridiculous two wheeled personal transporter that make people look ridiculous)

I am not a natural-born salesperson. I don’t have it in me to “sell” anything to anyone. In my part-time job, I do Sales and Marketing – and I dislike it immensely. I love the marketing portion. . . I don’t love the sales portion. I feel like the village eejit peddling my wares from a cart. BUT – I make the sale because I believe in the product. Plus, it’s my inheritance, so I need the business to make as much as it can! Right?

Okay, I desperately need some advice. But I cannot state the issue in this posting. Therefore, if you feel you are equipped to offer advice on a myriad of issues, please let me know, and I will give you a chance to play Mr. or Mrs. Fix-It!

Bloody Hell, man, pull yourself together!

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: To answer your question, I’ll quote Miss Jane Bennett, “Yes. A thousand times, yes.”
