Leave Who You Were Behind

I am aware of how bizarre this sounds, so I’ll just jump right in. You are not the pain you have suffered. You are stronger because of what you have gone through. Whatever you see it as: a victory, a failure, a win, a loss, a triumph, or a struggle. You came out the otherContinue reading “Leave Who You Were Behind”

Surround Yourself with Good People

Yes, I’m all about personal growth and inner healing, but the work you do on the inside is affected by who you have around you. It is so so important to have good people around you.

Give Yourself a Day Off

I can’t tell you how many times I have worked and worked until I couldn’t remember the last day off I had.

Some people might think its ridiculous, but I am such a sucker for self-accountability when it comes to relying on others.

People are always so surprisedContinue reading “Trust Actions Over Words”

What do I want to be when I grow up?

When I was growing up, I thought I’d become a lawyer, financial analyst, stock broker, or really anything big in the corporate world. Now that I’m an adult and actually trying to pursue some type of long lasting career, I am more sure that I don’t want to be sitting behind a desk working forContinue reading “What do I want to be when I grow up?”
