Sticking My Toe In

I've been thinking a lot about my career lately, and where I want to go with it.

Several years ago I took a deep breath and made the plunge into life as a legal eagle. But for a while now I've been bobbing up and down in the water, staying near the shore.

I'm afraid of the future. And insecure about my own abilities. I always have been.

But the knowledge has slowly dawned upon me, as certain as it can be, that I need to cast my insecurities aside. I need to grow up and be unafraid. I have all of the skills I need to survive in the shark-infested waters.

So I've decided that I need to start swimming straight out, and not worry so much about the future.

I have nothing to fear but fear itself. If I boldly force myself to go out there, wonderful things could happen.

At the very worst, if I falter on the way out, that boat on the edge of the horizon might rescue me.

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
