I think we all fall into a rut when we scroll mindlessly through Facebook or other social media platforms. This post inspired me to be more mindful of the emotional effects social media can have on me. I’m going to try to be more mindful, positive and happy, focusing on my personal happiness and not get caught up in what others are thinking and feeling.
Struggling to find my place and fit in the world. Hoping to figure it out little but little, day by day.
Cheers to a bright future and happy thoughts!
Tiny Beautiful Things is a transformative piece of work. Cheryl Strayed is brilliant as Sugar and I admire her dearly.
The letters and the answers the accompany them quickly opened my eyes. I was reminded that what I’m working through in my life and what troubles me may not even come close in size or scope to what others think, feel, lived. At the same time, I also realized that if I think I’m hurting or struggling or whatever-ing, that it’s okay for me to be that way, to think that way.
I would write more but my thoughts are jumbled because I feel so many different things about this book. I am so happy my dear friend T recommended it to me. I would highly recommend it to anyone at anytime in their life, but especially if it’s a time that you are struggling with self-expression, self-definition, and just being.
I love the quiet of Sunday morning. The time in between when every one is still sleeping and everyone wakes up lazily with a yawn.
When you’re awake for this quiet, it feels like the perfect time for silent reflection. To recompose oneself before the hustle and bustle of the week begins. It feels like a time for renewal, a time to recharge and clear your mind of unnecessary stress. It feels like a time for silent motivation, to read that book on your shelf or go for a run or bake some goodies or write something.
I love the quiet of Sunday morning.
I bet BBC that she will have a boyfriend by March 1, 2019. Or at least bet that there is a possibility because you never know ….
Today I had to say ‘see you later’ to one of the most prominent and influence women in my life. My boss is moving on to amazing things and I am so proud to have worked alongside her for the past two years. I have grown so much because of her guidance, abounding patience, and never ending reassurance. She is the epitome of what I want to be when I “grow up”.
She left me with words of wisdom and a statue meant to ward off evil and foster positive energy (pictured here). This will follow me as I move from a cubicle to an office one day. This will follow me until I can pass it on to someone else who will need it.
But this woman? She will follow me forever. She has engrained in me the importance of self confidence and a positive attitude. I will carry both with me proudly thought my career and most importantly, my life.
Cheers, KO - The initials of strong women everywhere.
Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.
