foresight

If only I knew then what I know now. How many of us have uttered that exact phrase? To be able to act with foresight would certainly allow the decisions that we make to be better, wouldn't it? As luck would have it, Rebecca and I now find ourselves in that very position. Facebook reminded me that in March 2010, 8 years ago, we were working hard to diverge ourselves of all of our stuff.

The time that we invested in creating resumes, writing cover letters, and applying for jobs has paid off, at least for Rebecca. In the short time…
