Who Do I Turn To?
Prior to working at home I would talk with co-workers about various professional goals/ideas. We would brainstorm, refine and move on. Now that blogging has replaced working outside the home, I no longer have that face to face constructive team. My friends have replaced co-workers for guidance and support, but some (not all) of their reactions are mixed (rather silent actually). Historically I have kept work and friendships separate so this new ‘relationship’ with them isn’t as comfortable. It dawned on me, why am I expecting my friends to be interested in my professional whereabouts. Sure they can be supportive but it’s not necessary for them to dive into my professional aspirations. It is with this experience that I realize the very people I should be turning to are you – the blogging community, my co-workers of today. There is a great deal of support and encouragement here and I just wanted to say thanks. Has anyone else had this epiphany?
