    Now, for a more direct answer(s).

    Am I aware when my “hustle” has gone “toxic” — not always on my own, so I must ask those I trust to help me take an objective look.

    Am I willing to look at what’s not working, again not always because it’s scary…like, y’all mean what’s become familiar (comfortable, EVEN) has to change — no matter if I’m self-destructing?!

    My “toxicity” is not as much a look but how it comes out in the treatment of those around me — family first, then friends, then colleagues, etc. so then it’s especially important for me to nip-it-in-the-bud before the weed(s) evolve into Audrey 2!

    Thought strategies — well, I’m learning the only time I should think is when a confidant is available to be my guide through the Inferno…and once that’s cleared, I return to doing what feels right, what my Spidey-senses say should be the next right thing.

    I don’t know. I haven’t hustled more than what I thought to be hustling.

    In the end, I just live forwards and understand backwards.
