I want to start over

To be a junior again. To have the luxury of just doing and thinking. Away from clients, away from the politics, away from the 9 hours of meetings a day.

I was always so consumed with moving up, comparing myself, I rushed through it and didn’t savor every bite.

It’s nice to make money. It’s nice to feel more respected and be able to speak from experience.

But some days experience blinds me.
