I believe hard work pays off.
My dream job was to be a teacher. After college, can you believe I couldn't get a job? It was depressing. So I know how kids feel who leave college in debt without finding work in their chosen profession.
But I didn't let that stop me. I worked up to five jobs at once so I could live on my own, where I wanted to be, and I enjoyed life. I experienced amazing things, met awesome people, and went places I might never have gone if I'd followed my little plan out of college. And as a sub, I touched more lives than if I'd stayed in one place. And then I became a WRITER! A complete surprise to me!
I can't imagine my life without writing. And I finally came full circle, teaching full time and loving it--even in this crazy time we live in.
I appreciate the freedom to choose my job, the opportunity to do it, and the experiences I've had along the way.
PS - I hope you VOTED!! I did
