    Wow, @Michael Dowling am I ever glad that I stumbled upon this post today. Quite simply, you have hit the nail on the head. Bad days, hard days - no one is immune - at least not in my opinion. And I have had my fair share, but they pale in comparison to other's hard days and I try to remind myself of that. As for writing about it, I couldn't agree more. I had a really hard day - to the point of being emotionally degrading - not so long ago and I wrote about it. The words poured from my mind to the keyboard. As I wrote, I could feel myself starting to let go and by the end I had gained back some perspective. While what fueled my writing was challenging and left me questioning many aspects of my life, it was excellent therapy and a way for me to pinpoint what was in my control: my actions. Each day is an opportunity to rise to the challenge and to make choices - good, bad or indifferent. It's up to us to decide how we are going to mold the clay that is presented to us each day. We can either let it sit idle or we can create our own artistry. Thank you so much for sharing this. It was just the pick me up that I needed this afternoon.

    #4 I have this saying... "If you need to write it, someone needs to read it." You helped me a great deal in facing some of my mountains, @Michael Dowling. Because a clear view helps us see roadblocks and potential new trails....

    Gotta tell you, @Michael Dowling, the transformation from the prior post to this one made me need to visit your website. And I suspect that embracing the suck, as you would put it, was a key contributor to utilizing your night' sleep to truly clear out the waste that had accumulated in order to rise into a new shining day. A round of applause!

    There's nothing worse than someone acting like they are an expert when they're talking to a real expert. By know your strengths and weaknesses, you can surround yourself with people who fill in your weaknesses and highlight your strengths.
    No one will ever be a perfect leader, but if you do the things mentioned above, your authenticity will shine through.
