Motivational Monday | Whatever Keeps the Anxiety Away!

Life has been absolutely amazing. I can’t complain. Everything finally seems to be falling into place. I’ve shared my journey to finding a career throughout various blog posts. It can be difficult. It’s never been easy. The one thing that’s kept me going is my determination, support from my family, and most importantly my faith in God. Despite the peak of my life right now and how fulfilled I am, one thing that won’t stay away is my anxiety. I’ve had to think outside the box and find ways to keep it away and keep moving forward.

Keep Yourself From Burning Out

Life gets busy. It can surely get overwhelming. You may find yourself being pulled this way and that way. You may have a mile long to do list yet you don’t know where to start.

Turn Those Lemons into Lemonade 

You ever have those weeks that everything is just going wrong? Nothing seems to go your way? You just can’t catch a break? I feel like I’m reading the script of an infomercial, but that’s exactly how I’m feeling.

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?

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.
