Cognac and Confidence
I know starting a new job is difficult, but some days I forget that the adjustment process takes much longer than I think. Last week ended and this week start so well. Tuesday had its moments, but by Wednesday morning, I was pretty sure I was a fraud who had got this job through trickery so deceptive I didn't even know what it was. In fact, I wasn't just a fraud at work, I was a fraud every where - even this blog. What made me think that I had a) creative enough outfits to photograph, b) had enough talent to write and c) was interesting enough to have any followers.
I brooded over lunch, unsure of what to do. I begrudgingly returned to my work, certain I'd find some new terror to ruin my life. Instead, I found an email containing no more than three words: "You are awesome". In those few words, my day turned around.
