    Failure happens. “There’s no perfectly woven theme,” says retired eBay CEO John Donahoe

    Having a plan is great, but also factor in some change and flexibility. If not, the disappointment can fester and even become debilitating.

    #18 Great point, Jan. And one with which I completely agree. Just yesterday I was having a conversation with my high school-aged daughter about life/education/career paths and stressed to her that in end it's up to the individual to find — and forge — their own unique place in this world. Thanks for adding to the conversation!

    #17 Thank you, James. I'm glad you can relate, but even happier to hear that each opportunity has taught you something. Sometimes trying something new is the only way we'll truly learn, even (and especially) if it doesn't work out the way we planned. Kudos to you for your tenacity and flexibility!

    Great Post Amy, Thanks for sharing your Story, I can relate to many parts of this, although in slightly different ways, I too have bounced across many roads trying to find my way, I wasn't born with a set path in mind, I've had to carve out my way in the rocks and have hit many hard points along the way, and I'm sure I will face many more in years to come. But I learn with each new route.

    Great first post here on beBee. I can relate, my folks, despite many conversations, have no idea. "Transferable Skills" EXACTLY! People ask how I jumped from food manufacturing/processing to durable goods and those are the words I use. Glad to see you joined the hive! Cheers.

    Welcome @Amy Blaschka with this excellent and so realistic post. You know what you have within you? Of course creativity, observations, and all other things are there, as you described. But what I took from your post is that you have a tremendous amount of sheer determination and devotion for any work you have been assigned with. Everything is possible for an individual who posses these qualities. Following you :-)

    I love this one, Amy, because it speaks to me on so many levels. My friend Wendy Blackwood coined the term "gypsy careerist." While I know this may have negative connotations for some, I find it endearing and artful. Great first post here on beBee.
