Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Orange:
"Don't do what's easy do what's challenging and fun."
I went the way of least resistence and what others told me I should do. I did not figure out what I wanted until it was too late. Don't do what's easy or what other's tell you you should do. Do the thing that is fun and challenging and that pays you the most money. Cause it's a drag to be really good, highly educated but not valued.
