I’m An Overthinker

Overthinking is what I do best. I can and will overthink for just about anything. It is truly a problem. Are you an overthinker? Overthinking affects our lives more than we probably would like to admit. We zero in and focus on a specific topic and think about all the possibilities. Usually, the possibilities that […]

Are You Asking The Right Questions?

I am a very black and white person. It is or it isn’t. I only see gray on a few things, like my professional career. For most of my life, I ask the black and white questions: Can I do X without failing? This usually holds me back. It keeps me from exploring that thing […]

I Am Me

I am me, regardless of my weight. I am me, regardless of my salary. I am me, regardless of my job. I am me, regardless of who my immediate family is. I am me and that is who I will be. I am me and I am learning to be comfortable with who I am. I have spent most […]

Doubt Kills More Than Failure

All my life I have been afraid of failing. It has never been one thing specifically, rather, failing at anything and everything. The thing that I didn’t know and that you’ve probably heard over and over again, is that everyone who is successful has failed. They have failed repeatedly. Success doesn’t mean we don’t fail. […]

Life’s A Bitch

I heard this phrase more often than not when growing up. It was usually expanded on with “Life’s a bitch, then you die.” My parents would say that. That was their whole outlook on life. They seriously could not find anything good in any situation. Life was only negative and only happened to them. When […]

Live Creatively

When I saw this quote, a lightbulb went off for me. You see, I have always thought that being creative meant you had to be an artist or the like; someone who made something from scratch and it was beautiful or useful. I equated creative people as being artists, painters, those who sewed or crocheted, or […]

Powerful and Capable

Giving yourself credit isn’t easy. At least, for me, it’s not. I always had the impression that if I were to give myself credit for anything, I would be conceited and stuck up and too into myself. It wasn’t acceptable in my mind. What was acceptable, was brushing off any accomplishment like it was no […]

If you get knocked down…

…get back up. I was knocked down last week. I was shown the true habits of the CEO of the company I was working for. Along with countless others, I was laid off. The reasoning we were given was that the company was restructuring. No warning. Just an hour’s notice for a meeting in the […]

You Don’t Need A New Year

At one point in our life, we’ve all said it, “on January 1st, I’ll start making changes.” We might say that in December, or September, or May, or even February. We have this habit of putting off the changes we want or need to make in our life until that big date. Forget the, “I’ll […]
