Let’s Get To Work!

createherstock-inspire-create-2

 

As I sit in my living room avoiding doing my homework and studying, I can’t help up daydream about all the things I want to accomplish next year (I’ll do almost anything when I’m avoiding schoolwork. Haha). More traveling, heftier savings, grander goals.  I want to see it all manifest next year. 2016 has been good to me, but I am really trying to level up next year. October 1st marked the start of the fourth quarter of the year, and it was then I realized it was time to get to work. It will be very hard to accomplish my 2017 goals if I do not start preparing now.  What’s that saying, “fail to prepare, prepare to fail”? So I have come up with some plans/ideas for myself to assist  with more efficient planning for next year so I can hit the ground running.Continue reading

Breaking Out on Your Own

 The freedom in Breaking Up 

Standing Alone

There are times when your life will inevitably change. Sometimes for the better. Sometimes for the worst. We will grow older (despite all the anti-aging products and gadgets to keep us looking young), we will gain and lose friendships and jobs, and we will fall in and out of love. If we will just keep living, we will experience all the emotions life has to offer. And if you are strong and resilient enough, you will go through (keyword is through) all of life’s bouts and come out on the other side stronger than you were at the beginning. Or at least, that is the hope.

Recently, I ended a 6 year relationship. It was something I never thought I had the huevos to do.Continue reading

Mistakes in the Workplace

Mistakes at work

 

Messing up at work can feel like the end of the world. Honestly. Depending on the job, you spend between 8-12 hours with these people 5 days a week. It can take a long time to live down mistakes you have made, especially large ones. The key is learning from your mistake, owning up to it, and making sure that it doesn’t happen again by putting in place measures that will help you later on. Today, I made a mistake at work. Well technically before I even got to work. I THOUGHT I had scheduled myself for tomorrow, but I wrote in the incorrect date and was called by staffing to see why I wasn’t at work! GASP! This is my first work on my own without a preceptor, and I’m already messing up. The wave of embarrassment washed over me like you would not believe. I profusely apologized and told her how I couldn’t believe I had made such a mistake. The women on the other end of the phone told me it was OK and that they would just move me to tomorrow’s schedule. When we hung up, I felt like the biggest idiot this side of the Mississippi. How could I have made such a mistake? I’m too grown for such mistakes. I’m supposed to be a professional. I bet my other colleagues would never make such a mistake. I began to beat myself up. Truth is, as I write this, I am still royally upset with myself. After some consoling from my BF and brief tears (I’m a very emotional person), I realized a few things (thanks to the BF).

2016 Promises to Myself

SHINING

It is still slightly unreal to actually think that we are in 2016. I remember when Y2K was a thing. Now it’s 2016, and we are only advancing and in some aspects, regressing, as a society. 2015 proved to be a trying year for our country, but in my own personal life, it was a year of new beginnings and the completion of accomplishments. I am looking into the unknown that is 2016 with anxious, giddy expectation. I am looking at myself, realizing that if anything is going to happen this year, it will require me to show up, to be present. So, here a few of the promises I am making to myself in 2016.

Scared of Success

My friend asked me how my YouTube thing was going tonight a few nights ago. All I could say was that I hadn’t done anything yet. I was working on it. The truth is, I’m always working on it. I have yet to get out of build mode. And to be honest, I haven’t done much building. All the thoughts I have and brand building is in my head. There are no tangible, physical manifestations of any of my ideas. I keep putting it off because I don’t have all the right equipment, or backdrop, or camera, or content; versus just starting and building as I grow. I consider myself a creative and sometimes I can only envision the whole picture. The details of getting it done can render me helpless. What’s that saying? Analysis paralysis. That’s me. I get too caught up in the details and find it hard to make any strides towards the goal if I feel like it’s not going in the right order.

Also, people are so cruel behind a computer now and I have a tender heart. I don’t have thick skin, never have. But when there is a vision, a dream, an idea that has been placed inside to be manifested, how dare you allow ‘people’ who can’t support the vision stop you? So I am now in “building mode”. I have started to list the items I feel would assist me in moving this process along so I am not discouraged by the entire process. I will attach time frames to those items, making it more manageable to handle. I am making my creative space more workable. It has to be for my thoughts to flow freely. I’m telling myself that I have to work on my goals every day. I can’t work 36 hours for someone else (I’m a nurse. That’s full time for me. Thank goodness!), and only spend 3 hours on my own brand. I won’t progress like I want to. I won’t progress like I should. So here’s to working on my goal before 2016. Here’s to finding the courage to obtain what I feel is already mine. I hope you take this time to reflect on goals you’ve allowed to collect dust. May 2016 bring goal achieving milestones for you!

Life Update! New Job! New Place! New Beginnings!

Hey! I have been gone for too long. I definitely have neglected my blog. I know, I know…I should be ashamed of myself. Life started to get crazy, and I became too lazy to be creative. How is that even possible?! It’s totally possible and it happened to me. I was so focused on the complexities of my life at the moment, I would not allow myself to relax and create. I decided today that I would work through the laziness and continue to build my blog.

So…here is the update on my life:
