It's Been a Long Night

Have you ever wondered HOW you fall asleep exactly?
Lately I haven't slept very well...too much on my mind between work, family, my home life...you know how it goes.
I have this friend who has a blog and I've decided to venture out into the world of blogging. To him, thanks...
Anyway, his comments have really been plaguing me lately. You see, I believe that my career shouldn't define who I am, and he believes otherwise; that no matter what, I will be labeled by my career choice.
I, however, believe that WHO I am should define me, not what I do for work. I want to be known as someone who loves the outdoors, not someone who can type 60 words a minute. I want to be known as someone who makes others smile, not someone who can meet the deadline.

Either way, the title to my first blog has two meanings. The first being that I can't sleep at night lately, and the second being that it is the title of the first REALLY good song that I've written; One that I'm actually and whole-heartedly proud of. Maybe, just maybe, I should pursue THAT instead. Then I can be defined as an artist, and not just another number.
