So, like a cat, I’ve been re-orienting myself mid-air.
To be able to land on my feet, I released those things that no longer served me–like my brilliant corporate accomplishments. Nobody cares. All that’s in the past. Hanging onto past glories would only cause me to fall faster and harder. But falling, I was. I could not see where I was or where I was going. I could not tell how far I would fall before I met the ground. To gain perspective, I needed to reorient myself.
There are advantages in choosing to evolve–to adapt and become flexible in learning new methodologies and ways of working. Once I master the tools, my natural creative abilities can take over. Thus it is that I acknowledge my inherent strengths. My passion for beauty and design is powerful. I have taken pains to discover every aspect of the book arts as I love typography, enjoy writing and adore designing logos. I am informed by my depth of background knowledge but I’m equally obsessed with learning new things. Did I mention I love cats?
But I also possess a true desire to help other oldsters, like me, who are suddenly daunted with the realization that the internet as a place of business is probably the best solution. That’s why I’m determined to learn the tools, terminology, and everything else new to me.
That’s how This Star Cat is slowing her descent!
At the end of my fall, I plan to hit the ground running. I invite you to follow my journey and run with me.
