We would accomplish many more things
if we did not think of them as impossible.

Vince Lombardi

It is a weird, surreal yet oddly very cool day when the VP of your "day job" company suggests your name to an outside company for a free-lance publishing job.  This is not something I would have ever thought possible (the whole VP suggesting you to someone for an outside job).  On top of that, it's a very nicely paying job... and way more than I have ever thought I was worth.  It is a tough sell to my inner critic that I deserve this.  I am afraid.  I do not want to come off as an amateur.  I worry that my "amateur' skills are not worth even half of what I intend to charge which is potentially much less than their budget. 

Once I accepted the possibility that I really, possibly could do this job, the VP of my company remarked to me, "just remember the little people you leave in your wake."  To which I replied that I hardly saw him as a "little person", nor did I ever think I would have a wake to leave  him, or others, in. 

But today, a very exhilerating thought caught a teeny spark and began to glimmer and shimmer in the deepest recesses of my brain.  Why not?  It could happen.  It is possible.

Check out more quotes, music and inspiration on POSSIBILITY at SFTIO.  As always, it is my favorite place to be.  Aside from here.  And bed.  Which is where I'm headed now.


  1. Congrats on the opportunity. Don't sell yourself short ... apparently the VP sees your skills as something that can and should be marketed to people ... so go with it! If they're paying more than you think you're worth ... maybe you've been miscalculating! Good luck with the project!

  2. you are worth every penny and then somemore....you just let that sun shine girly...tell me more about it...how exciting

  3. Yes, YOU Can! Best of luck with it.

  4. Best of luck with this opportunity. Can I leave you a quote I love? "I dwell in possibility" Emily Dickinson

  5. nice post. thanks.
