I have found it to be difficult to reconcile "corporate me" with "simple girl" me. However, one trip to the Whites or Greens (Mountains, that is) and I am no longer confused. I'm good at my job and frequently even motivated to excel, but alas ... even though I am not a real mountain girl (yet), the outdoors speaks to me in ways I find peaceful, renewing ... and uh, hard to describe. I am a better person when I am "up North" and it only takes one short weekend get away to reassure me that my next step is make a permanent change.
Perhaps I am in my "Sandwich Range" - that place between one life phase and the next.
Balancing what must be done with what wants to be done.
Filling my reserves, storing potential.
