• To Whom It May Concern…

    I am quite successful. When you read my resume, it is so impressive that companies fight over me. I have two associates degrees and almost done with my Bachelors/Masters. I manage four health clinics and I am moving up to manage 27!!

    I am only 22 years old.

    I am independent: professionally, politically, financially, and personally independent.

    But I feel empty.

    I do what my over-bearing, materialistic parents have wanted me to do. At 22, I make more money than they do combined.

    But I am NOT happy.

    Why am I not happy? Because I work 60 hrs a week and hate my job. Oh, I do it well, but I am not passionate about it. The times I am not at work, I am spending time with my boyfriend, who does not send the tingles of desire down my spine anymore. I have spent so much time at work, I have pushed all friends and potential boyfriends away.

    I have lost the passion of life at 22. How sad is that?

    But this is what society wants!! A sexy woman who knows business and can make things happen. Slap on that veneer, and put a smiling face on, while screwing the patient out of money, and slowly decaying my morals. And when I’m not at work, I’m supposed to be buying outrageous things that I don’t need, going into debt, and hooking up with every guy I see, so society says.

    I say fuck that!!

    I want to travel the world. I want to see the Rock of Gibraltar at sunset. I want to drink Irish whiskey and see the Mona Lisa. I want an Italian man to make my toes curl!! I want to sail the open sea. I want to live a life that few Americans have ever dreamed!!

    But the world runs on money…
    And I don’t want to travel alone…
    Plus, it’s not safe for a girl to travel alone…
    What would I do when I got back…
    How would I eat…

    So many excuses as to why not…

    Cut the chains. Find your passion. Live!!! You only get one shot!!

    I am making the commitment. In 6 months I will be overseas living my dream!! Wish me luck!!
