Change Is Gonna Come
I had a horrible day yesterday, which was capped off with some news that I expected, but that still floored, offended, and hurt me. I am appalled at the level of unprofessionalism some people put forth in their chosen fields. I am glad I always maintain my dignity and self-respect, not just as a person, but in my work. I will be filing a complaint against the vile bitch in question, but if I ever hear her voice in a public place, I will not be held accountable for my actions. Some people just don’t get that you don’t say certain things to people, no matter what. I held my tongue, which is a huge accomplishment for me, but I also know that keeping my mouth shut doesn’t mean I am weak and it doesn’t mean someone else has won. It means I’ve held on to a piece of myself, and that I’ve maintained my core beliefs and values.
So this morning, I needed this blast of inspiration that Gavin DeGraw sings so impeccably, it damn near moves me to tears.
