Working It Out...|
Wow ! :/ Yeah I'd have to say it seems as though you're in the middle of getting dealt some hard knocks .
I sit here in front of the computer tonight finnaly feeling able to pull my own weight . I moved here to Fairbanks after being inspired by seeing what Tim was able to accomplish when he was able to truly "find himself". It has taken me until today to reach a place where I am truly comfortable. I am now living in my "ideal" location north of Fairbanks off of the Elliot highyway.
My dogs have a nice yard, I have "MY" own place with a wonderful view and with independent renewable wind and solar power. And today it is official I've landed my dream job working for the local renewable energy supply company. I finally love my job. I am finally appreciated for the artist I can be when I,m just let alone, in my own medium of course .I'm making more money than I ever have before . I am happy. Finally !
But let me tell you I had to go through many nasty times to reach this point . And I'm not proud of everything that has happened to me to get here. It was a rough trip at times . Many many many times .
You are the only one who can truly "find yourself"
The only opinion you cannot escape is that of your own
You are only the person that you want to be.
Take the bits and pieces of bad stuff, and puzzle piece them together into something better than the sum of its parts
There were many times when I was tempted to give up and just leave it all and move back.
Alaska had beaten me, it seemed many times. But now here I sit, triuhmphant at last.
All I can say is that I feel for you and Tim both. You are both so talented. You both deserve better . Its gonna feel SO awesome when you finnaly ascend up out of the pit of despair, (I dont mean that to sound too awful), and enter into your own success, whatever that may be for you both. I know you both wont quit till you get there.
Good luck to the both of you.
