It is what it is:
Accept reality. Take a cold, hard look at what is. Don’t run away from the truth. Like the fact that I am 67 and don’t have the energy I once did later in the day. Like the fact that my job record is spotty and if I seek part-time employment for the fall, my age and job record may close the door on an opportunity. Like the fact that due to my loss of energy in the late PM that fulltime work is not realistic; a part-time job is, though. The fact is that I am a good counselor but not such a good teacher, so I should stick to my skill. In addition to writing, of course. Poetry is probably my first love, as far as a creative endeavor is concerned. But beyond that, I still want to work part-time. I hate to not utilize a skill.
Is there a reality you need to take a close look at and accept?
