clarity, boundaries, & saying “fuck yea” to whatever’s next

My hours got cut at work. And I am amped. I’ve bounced back and forth between I CLEARLY MUST HAVE A SUCCESSFUL FREELANCE CAREER DOING WHAT I LOVE. and Realistically, having the structure of a normal desk job is good for me.

DAY THREE: on showing up for others

Follow-through was never a specialty of mine. In fact, I was known to be a bit of a flake. I’d frequently cancel last-minute and, if I did show up for plans, I’d arrive late.
