Being Content With Intent

Being Content With Intent

Did I mention I accidentally wrote a book? My intention while jotting some ideas and thoughts down at my former job was to get some things off my chest, to vent, to explore possible next steps. It was kind of like a journal for this one area of my life, and the page was where I came to rest. Fast forward a couple years' worth of entries, and some distance from the job, and the journal pieces pulled together into quite a provocative story.
