Wait until the time is right.

Young girls, do not have babies at a young age. They are cute and cuddly and precious, they are also a full time job.

So if you are ready for that kind of commitment and ready to channel your hard earned money into it and ready to lose your freedom, then go for it.

If not, then DON'T DO IT!

Settling down.

Trying to settle down while watching all my friends choose careers and have fun.

How does a mover and shaker settle down (or is this just an oxymoron)?

updated: 10/23/2013

it is very possible for a mover and shaker to settle down. Sometimes it just takes a little patience and faith.

It's good to be home.

I've chosen who I want to be.

I'm not who you think I am. I am afraid to be free, to live the life that I want to live. Chains and shackles are the norm for me. Trying to live up to everyone's expectations and standards, I have never set any for me. I once heard that if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything (Malcolm X), but standing takes strength; an internal strength that you gain from knowing who you are and what you want to do.

Life is tough enough without adding someone else's script to it.

At the end of the day...

I'm glad that I am finally home. At the end of the day, I'm usually tired and ready to just chill. Today is different; I have lots of energy and I am ready to take on the world. Life is good.

A New Day.

About to get ready for work. OMG, just having to drag myself in today is almost unbearable, but I'm on the path to something better.

Another long, boring day at work.

Another long, boring day at work. Looking at the clock and looking forward to going home. One good thing about work is that I have a job, but I believe a career is what I should have looked for.

We ESTP types tend to get bored easily unless we find an outlet for our boredom elsewhere.

Our approach on life is on a day-by-day basis, so long-term commitments are not naturally comfortable for us. Although we may feel tremendously committed, we want to take our commitments day by day. (http://www.personalitypage.com/ESTP_rel.html)

Anyway, another day in the life...

Went shopping today for a Savignon Blanc for the Shrimp and Feta stew. Can't wait to taste it.

Until later.

New Adventure

I am on a new adventure. Having just seen the movie "Julie and Julia", I am inspired to resume a favorite activity. I love cooking, but the journey was cut short by someone who said "you can't cook things like that, you need a cookbook".

Well I don't have a cookbook, but I have a desire and a will. My first recipe to try: Shrimp and Feta stew. So here's to you Julie (and Julia). Thanks for reawakening my passion.

I'll be back soon with the results.

That's some bullsh*t!

You help someone to advance and achieve their goals and then they turn on you. As if they could even get there themselves!!

The nerve of some people and their vicious ambitions. Someday, their actions will come back and bite them in the ass.

I'm done building my bridge, I will now get over it.

Living Without Money

I have lived my entire life below my circumstance. I was mostly trying to hold on to what I was given and out of fear, I have used many things to remain in this state. I have used coupons, excuses and events that cost very little or nothing, just to name a few, to get by.

Namely, I was, discounting myself so that I could continue to live that way.  At first it was fun; I was young and clipping coupons was a thrill, saving money was a challenge, but what I didn't know was that I was avoiding. I was never going to reach my full potential. In fact, I wasn't reaching at all.  Until...

One day my eyes were opened. Opened to what I was doing, to what I was missing and to the way that I was treating myself. REALITY CHECK and a wake up call. That day marked an ending. Some sadness ensued. 

Would I be able to find value in the very thing that I once discounted? Would I reach new heights? Yes, but only time will tell which heights I allude to. My journey starts today and although I don't know where it will take me, I know where I'm headed.

Pray for me and wish me luck.

Invest in yourself.

There are great benefits in building yourself and investing in yourself. First you gain skills and knowledge that you didn't possess. Second, you gain confidence as you invest in your education as well as your appearance. Third, positive begets positive. As you do positive things for yourself, it will attract more positives to you.

Managing up.

When climbing the corporate ladder, it may be necessary to manage up. Beware that managing up should be for both party's benefit. If your manager moves up, then you may too. If your sole goal is to manage your supervisor, boss or manager out of his (or her) job, be careful. 

This approach (managing your boss out of their job) is sticky for everyone involved. Keep your manager's (and your) best interest at heart.

Hope this helps. See ya tomorrow.

Up, up and away.

Using your gifts and talents as you rise up the corporate ladder will help you to soar to new heights. Your gifts and talents are unique to you (someone may be be able to do the same thig, but not the same way you do), use them to rocket yourself to the top.

Keep stress in check.

Climbing the corporate ladder can be extremely stressful. Keep stress in check by taking time out for yourself, spending time with friends and reviewing your goals. Taking care of yourself during stressful times is the best way to continue on your journey without missing a beat. Remember just because it's "lonely at the top" doesn't mean you have to be there alone.

Hope this helps. See ya tomorrow.

Focus, focus, focus

Focus is one of the main driving forces in achieving your goals. Without focus, we flounder and become wishy-washy. After stating your goals, focus on them to achieve them.

Goals, goals, goals.

For your climb up the corporate ladder, you will need goals. 

Use the rungs on "the ladder" as your mile markers. Goals will help you to stay on track and put you one step closer to reaching the top of the ladder.

See ya tomorrow for more hints.  Hope this helps!!
