The Dragon Ate My Positive Attitude

I can't sleep.

I have so much on my mind.

So often, my mind is thinking up new ways to eek out a living. Not just go to work to make money but to actually have passion for what I do and make money doing it. I thought I wanted to be a photographer. **shrugs** Maybe I do, maybe I don't. I thought I wanted to be a lawyer (I know I don't, now). I thought that maybe I could be a teacher at the college level but that would require like 10 more years of school. To that, I respond with a big fat HELL NO! I turn 37 in August and I'm still trying to figure it all out.

Anyway within the last 10 years, aside from dreaming of being a writer, I have always always always wanted to own my own business. So when I say the Dragon ate my positive attitude: DRAGON=HAWAIIUSA Federal Credit Union. They have put a damper in my little journey toward being a business owner.

While I wish I could sulk and deal with my frustration in a bottle of tequila, I know that I shouldn't and I won't. Instead, I'm going to exercise in the morning to prepare to fight the DRAGON again.

Ka-chow da dragon, sis! It's just one hump. Only one amongst a million others that could've presented themself to you. You are still young as can be.. don't let your age tell u you're not where u need to be. My parents just took a chance in their 50's and it's proven to be the right choice for them.
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!!!
