Not so tragic after all

Art by Thomas Saliot 
Last week I celebrated my two year anniversary with my company. I love this job. I feel so lucky that I get to work with awesome people in a marketing career that allows me to be both creative and clerical. I am both things: whimsical and logical. Math and music. Abstract art and graph paper. Purple toenails and nude pumps. I used to feel like I was wearing two different shoes in public and that I needed to constantly apologize for being so disheveled. No more. It wasn't until I found myself at this desk, in this office, drinking this cup of coffee that I had a powerful epiphany: this tragic flaw serves me well and is not really a flaw after all.
