I actually liked my last “day job.” The people were really nice, the pay was ok, the work was pretty mellow. It allowed me to have time to pursue other things. I would have to say it was good.
But not great. Greedy me, I wanted a “great” career. Something I could really be proud of. But unfortunately at the time, I didn't have the skills to do anything except what I was doing. Believe me, I tried. That is why when I discovered blogging, and how much I loved it, that I would go for it like there was no other option.
It wasn't easy, and to be honest it was rough for a while. But had I been afraid to give up the “good” I would have never gotten to the “great.”
