Chandlee -

Combine a need for perfection with "what will 'they' think if I ..." thinking and it's a recipe for a lot people doing a lot of things that are not fulfilling. (Been there done that!)

It's brave to try. It's brave to realize what you thought was perfect is not and take steps to change it. Excellent reminder that it's OK to change your mind.

(And how ironic is it we both mentioned "Hoarders" in our posts this month? Great minds!!)

Chandlee - this is a great post and a great reminder that we need to stop caring about being perfect for anyone in our lives. Happiness should weigh much more heavily than any preconceived idea of a perfect career track. I hope your post inspires at least one person to think outside of the box!
