He DID make me think a bit, though... about my own behavior. Hopefully it will be a wake up call to help me start being a better person all around. His harsh words were intended to hurt, but hopefully they'll help.
My boss and I were walking from the corporate office to a boutique the other day, and he said "So this place sure makes you feel alive, huh?" Yeah. It sure does. :) I am right where I have wanted to be for years... give and take a few things lol, and it's because of my hard work. That feels good.
I <3 NY... and for the first time in a while, I <3 me, too.
