Cashing in Our Chips and Heading Back for More: A Short Story on Getting What We Want

It’s one of those days when writing should have been easy.

Sitting down at the keyboard would uncork a flood of emotion and catharsis, or so I thought. But it didn’t.

Today, I signed the offer letter for the promotion I’ve been pining for and grinding for

I am beyond excited don’t get me wrong. But it really struck me today how what we get from achieving our goals matters far less than who we become. It’s funny, but the ultimate paradox is when you actually put in the work, the external rewards don’t seem quite so important.

The experience itself becomes priceless.

 And now? Well, I feel more tired than I have in months, after the better part of a year grinding hard in search of the next opportunity. So it goes.

Tomorrow is a new dawn and a new day.

We overestimate what we can accomplish in a day. But we underestimate what we can do in a year.

So rise and shine sweetheart, welcome to the grind.
