I changed my mind....

I don't want to be average nor do I want to be normal.  I've tried to fit in but I'm over it.  It's a waste of my "perfectly good talent".  I'm tired of trying to stuff my square peg into societies round hole in hopes of feeling worthy of others attention. It's hard to explain...I had it all typed out a few moments ago but the blogger thing went "fitz", didn't save and then my words disappeared. grr.

Anyhow, I no longer like 830 to 5. DOn't get me wrong I'm grateful to have a job. I enjoy the work I do; it can be rewarding.  There was even a time when I loved what I did and could see myself doing it for another 20 yrs.  These last few weeks though I've got to thinking that there is so much more to life than what I've allowed myself to be.  I've always marched to the beat of my own drummer but chastised myself for doing so.  I'd tell myself that a "normal" person follows societies guidelines on "blah blah blah".  I have no idea what I was thinking...but I can tell you that I'm over trying to make myself fit into what I think society is telling me I should be fitting into.  Maybe I think too much and do too little. eh...the wind will blow tomorrow and change a few things I'm sure :O) but that's what is so amazing...I'm allowed to change my mind!

Gusto, confident, take charge.


  1. You aren't alone!!

    Check out the movie "I'm Fine, Thanks"...totally what you're talking about.

    And I hate it when blogger eats my posts. Grr is right.

  2. realizing that we are all CREATORS of our own lives... and seeing that we can take control and THINK beyond the boxes we're put in, it's very liberating and freeing. I say, continue on and create the life you want!!!
