“What you have to realize when you write poetry, or if you love poetry, is that poetry is just naturally the greatest god damn thing that ever was in the whole universe.” - James Dickey (died: 19 January 1997)
You know, I may not be in the exact job I want to be, but god damn I’m one hell of a stronger person than I was a year ago.
Work can suck the life out of me, but I’m so excited to watch how I’m continually growing in my role. You’re weak and make me have the uncomfortable conversations with others? Fine. More chances for me to improve myself. You’re going to cave when someone’s a giant ass and thinks he can bully you into getting his way? Sure. But not me.
I’ve been learning to just cut out the bullshit in my life and let it go. Knowing what I will absolutely not stand for and sticking with it does amazing things for you.
