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

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!

Recently, I had to confront some people who are very close to me about how they had hurt my feelings. Needless to say, confronting people remains one of the MOST uncomfortable things I ever have to do. Read more about how I “successfully” confront my issues and deal with hurt feelings.
