My head hurts. My nose is cold. My spirit is weary.

Why is it so difficult for people to have substance? To work with integrity? To realize that meaningful work is not always measurable?

Sometimes I just want to pull on my crocheted slippers and forget the outside world.

But I also remind myself that this too, Dear Reader, shall inevitably pass.

A Letter to My Working Self.

Because we are more than our jobs.

Dear Working Woman:

Wake up. Perhaps put on a little makeup. (Or don’t.)

Sip a little something at the kitchen table. Let your peepers adjust to the light of the morning sun.

As the cuckoo announces the start of another working day, relish the opportunity before you.

It’s another day to be in the world, love.

It’s another day to use your mind, your hands, your heart.

Speak with intelligence. Speak with respect.

Speak the truth, however unpopular it may be.

Because you cannot control how others perceive you.

They will judge.

They will misunderstand.

All you can do is try.

Live honestly.

Live with integrity.

Be true to yourself, girl.

‘Cause you’ve got nothing to lose.
