I have always been told the expression '"If you don't ask, the answer will always be 'no'." I didn't truly realize what this mean until I had a conversation with our executive director about my job performance, to where he surprisingly ended up just buying me lunch. I have about 200-300 coworkers and about more than half do not know who he is, yet I was willing to take a breath, go into his office, and talk with him and ended up getting a lunch out of it! That made me realize that maybe I just need to go for it. Stop holding back and just go for it, whatever it may be.
I don't know what I want out of life, but I'm willing to try a lot and that's good enough for me. So here goes nothing!
