On inspiration for your aspiration.

"I feel like I haven’t found my calling yet. I feel like I’m a fish floundering on land, unsure of where to go but knowing that this current place isn’t it. Sometimes I don’t think I have a place. Sometimes I’m pretty sure I have about 20 places and it’s on me to find out which one fits at the exact moment I needed it and to know when it’s time to move on or return to an old place."

That's from Ashley at the blog after nine to five today. That quote describes what I was crying into my pillow and at my roommate last night. It started with finding out my boyfriend wouldn't be able to make it to the book bloggers event I'm presenting at tonight, and snowballed into an all out cry out about how my life isn't what I want it to be and how my fear keeps me from doing what I love and want to do. I couldn't have said it better, and definitely didn't say it any better last night with snot on my face. So, here's to learning, growing, and overcoming fears and negativity by sharing them and letting them go, getting smaller until they are a dot in the atmosphere like a released balloon. And, as Spock says:

Good for you for following your heart and doing things to better yourself! I am so glad what I said was something you could relate to. It's really nice to know I'm not alone.

I wish you the best of luck tonight! I'm excited to hear how it goes. :]
