Don't read this-it's boring

Been thinking a lot about what I really want to do right now. It is consuming me. I am coming from a career of 21 years behind a desk, prim and proper, with a professional air. It suited me-- or so I thought. I am in fact still in pursuit of that job where I am looked upon as the intelligent go getter with the killer looks (yup-just added that right in,, don't laugh,, it was a self pity thing- it's a bad hair day--gimme a break--just nod and agree,, yes,, the KILLER LOOKS,, OK,, I am better now!).

But I find myself becoming less and less interested in those politics and more suited to pursue the creative nature I have. No there won't be huge-ass sculptures of Circus Peanuts and Green Olive sexual hook-ups or paintings with Walmart greeters as my muse. But I am talking about being more closely in tune with who I am as a person. I can be a cut-throat salesperson, but do I LIKE that trait? I can say what THEY want to hear, but does that make me proud? I am trying to tell my kids that they can be ANYTHING they want but maybe I don't believe that I can actually achieve that.

It does not help that there are no jobs out there that are not straight commission type positions. Sure if I had back up income I would hop right over and do that,,, but I don't. It's just me and my awesomeness. And my mascara addiction.

I think what is going to happen is an in-between job that I hate. And I will make the best of it until I don't have to. Isn't that what 95% of us do ANYWAY???? Why am I thinking I am an exception? So now........

I say to's time to:


......and in the mean time try soooooo hard not to get all pierced, tattoo'd and purple haired....sigh.....I hate being responsible!!!

I wish I could sell. Job market has been so horrible lately. But I just don't have the right personality for it.

Olive and peanut butter? I'm kind of intrigued by the combination.

My sales skills suck!
To top it off, I'm not fond of doing it. I've worked labor type jobs all my life, because I don't like offices. Or rather, I don't like being confined day in and day out.

But I agree. It can be hard to break free from a work mold once one has been doing it long.

And, Peanut Butter goes well with anything. I am a Peanut Butter freak!

I wouldn't advise anyone to work in any 'sales' field at this time.

I love your reverse psychology.

I've done sales -- it's very stressful. You're constantly trying to "close" the deal. If you do sell, you're loved by your boss for that day. The next day you're a loser again until you make the sale. It's hard, hard, hard mentally and emotionally. Your hours are at the mercy of your customers. Do Not Sell. It has the potential to crush you!!!

Why do I always feel like I'm telling you what "not" to do?

I want you to take this blog and have it bound into a book and sell it! You are a wonderful and gifted writer.

Also -- I'll talk to you more about the popcorn ceiling later. I think I have an idea for you (which I saw on another blog).

So think about your ceiling again. Stay where you have a guaranteed income and no sales pressure.

If you want further advice on any other aspect of your life, email me!

Keep faith. You and your awesomeness and mascara and olives and peanut butter will make it to a meaningful place.
Why the false title of this post, though? You are never boring.
