      i am afraid it is time for me to leave the business i work for – it was Bill’s baby and as much as I hate to do it, I cannot work with the owner. i have managed for over a year, but i honestly cannot do it anymore.

    Swimming is better than sinking.

      So true. I am getting closer to the jump… I know how to swim, I just wish it was literal not figuratively. 🙂

        That first step is always the hardest
