Favorite Quotes:
1. I had been telling myself, “I should just appreciate where I’m at, I’m making money, I have a great job”. But as much as I tried to convince myself, I was just facing the pain of “I’m not happy”. And instead of thinking there’s something wrong with me for not feeling happy at a great job, making good money, I decided to really listen. -Victoria Song
2. When you’re in phase one, it can feel like very toxic motivation. Because, not only are you drained and exhausted doing a job that you don’t love, but it ripples out into your personal life. -Victoria Song
