Motivational Monday | Change Is Good!

These past few weeks , no this past year has been filled with major changes and adjustments.  I left one job that for another and now I’m on to another one. From leaving one job to starting a new one. I have had to make changes in a shorter amount of time than I usually would, but it’s necessary. I have always preferred comfort over change. I won’t say that I despise change, but if I could keep things my way, why not?

Life After College | 4 Years Later

May 23, 2013 I graduated from undergrad with a B.A. in English Communications – Broadcast Journalism. As for what my degree entailed, I studied English literature and radio/TV production for four years. I started in 2009 and finished in 2013 which was an accomplishment in itself as not many people in the program finished in 4 years. I didn’t take summer classes and my semesters were jam packed, but I finished. After graduation, it was just that, a graduation. No career like some of my other friends. No full-time job with benefits. I was still working at a daycare making minimum wage. In fact, I had just had surgery two weeks prior and hadn’t worked the entire month of May plus I wrapped up an internship with Billboard. Receiving my degree made all the twists and turns of my last academic year worth it. Here I am 4 years later where I can happily reflect on that time in my life as I make a stride in my career.  Continue reading “Life After College | 4 Years Later”

Motivational Monday | Pray Your Way Out Of It 

For the second time in less than a year I find myself unemployed. In July of 2016 I quit my job at a daycare that I had been at for 6 years. I went on to finish and gain my MBA in Marketing that August, and by September I was in a new role. While the role was not full-time, it was a step in the right direction and I was able to put my Masters to use. Although I was offered the ‘potential’ of a full-time position in this role in January as fate would have it, a job I loved was not my destiny. So here I am, back to the drawing board. What’s next?

Motivational Monday | Irrelevant Goals?

When I come across something that makes me think outside the box or simply changes my perspective, I like to share it here on the blog. The purpose of this Motivational Monday series, even my Sound Off series for that matter is to challenge your way of thinking. Sometimes we get so boxed in to what “we” think that we tend to ignore the insightful thoughts of others. A Facebook video that I recently came across is one of those instances that made me think. The topic, goal setting. Are my goals irrelevant? Am I not progressing the way I want because I’m stuck?

Motivational Monday | Refocus & Prioritize

Welcome to a new post here on the blog and HELLO MAY! I wanted to touch base and follow-up on a vision board post I created at the top of the year with areas that I wanted to focus on. With a third of 2017 gone, it’s time to regroup, refocus, and see what areas need to become a priority.

Motivational Monday | Enjoy the Ride

My church has added a new monthly service geared at millennials. The purpose of the service is to simply bring back those that may have strayed away from regularly attending church, like myself, with an engaging service. After attending the first service, which was amazing, I wanted to share the topic of that night, “Enjoy the ride.”

Motivational Monday | Fear to Speak 

I was sucked into the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy this past Thursday. While I’m not completely in tune with the show I have a gist of it plus the characters. This episode in particular features Jackson Avery, played by Jesse Williams, as he travelled to do a surgery on a girl and in the midst he met his long lost father for the first time. While I found the episode entertaining and engaging, it’s what he said at the end that really stuck.
