I found myself most at peace on the roof of my old Chicago apartment. It was from there, in the warm light of the sun, that I was able to relax and contemplate my future.
I had no regret about leaving my job: my first management position wore me out and I needed to take a break. I was thinking more about my heart.
One of the biggest motivating pushes for California was to change my energy… with the stress of my old job, apartment, and relationship already in my wake, I felt that motivation slipping away like a setting sun.
