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 | 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.”

Motivatonal Monday | Keep Going 

Speeches at award shows come a dime a dozen. Being that they happen so often, when one really speaks to you, they’re a real gem. As tensions are rising here in the U.S., you will find a lot of speeches turn back to politics. For me, there’s nothing like a speech that speaks to work ethic, your passions, and that fire inside waiting to ignite. Denzel Washington’s speech at the 2017 NAACP Image Awards back in February did just that.

Faith Planner | Set-Up

Welcome to another post here on the blog. One of my major goals for 2017 is to definitely get more in touch with my faith. I’ve mentioned it in previous Motivational Monday posts, but I’ve never really stuck to it. I’ve joined quite a bit of Facebook groups that relate not just to planning, but to worship as well. One thing that stood out to me that someone had posted in a group was that we get so consumed by making it a habit to write down our scriptures every day then it can become a chore. That’s definitely something to keep in mind as I begin this planner.
