I find niches intriguing and beautiful. The properly placed niche intrigues and adds context. Not only that, it is a natural home for specific treasures. Which comes first - the treasure or the niche??
Finding our own niche is equally intriguing and beautiful. That's where I am right now. What am I? Where is my niche? Carving out a niche that I"m not sure of is an exhausting process. And I have bills to pay. Such is the life o a solutionist.
I know my limitations well. I don't sell myself well, as a general rule. My answer to the question of "what do you do?" is typically a question back: "What do you need me to do?" I'm not being a lunatic. I honestly want to help know what you need so I can honestly tell you if I can do it or if i know someone who can. That is what a solutionist does. It's a broad scope of skills. Maybe one day it will be appreciated. Until then, I seek a back up to my daytime Chaos Taming. Hopefully, the stress won't do me in anytime soon.
