lack·lus·ter  

Lacking brightness, luster, or vitality; dull.* 

So, I have decided that I need some sort of daily exercise in something because my once overflowing creative juices have become a dry well.  I have been reading lots of blogs lately and have decided that I need to jump on board. So here I am!  

Here’s the deal – My current working situation – that place that I spend more than half of each day – is completely Lackluster! (Everybody clap and scream because I have used the magic word of the day!) Honestly, I think it has always been dull but I have been so desperate to make it fun and interesting that I missed all of the signs. My wheels have been turning and I have been fun and friendly – Full of sparkle – and then I woke up and was like “ SERIOUSLY – this is some kind of joke right?” Someone asked me this morning how I was doing – and I said bluntly “I have lost my sparkle”. Now I probably should not have said that – who knows who is watching and listening – but the truth of the matter is, I really don’t care. Which is sad!  

So how do we find an occupation that pays the bills and keeps us happy? How can I fully and completely use my talents, and play with my passions but still bring in a steady income? Does such a thing exsist? Can somebody please show me where I can sign up?
