Never Give Up
It's Not Easy Many people will go throughout their lives taking the easy way out of things. Don't let that be you. Have you ever heard the saying, "This is the calm before the storm?" That saying goes both ways. You will have a storm before you push through to where you want to be. Something that you truly desire is not going to be something that happens overnight. That is simply the way it is with everything in life.
Deployment VS Wife: Part 2
You Chose This Life Correct me if I am wrong, but all military wives hate when people say, "You chose this life. You knew this was going to happen." A person saying that does not automatically make everything difficult about deployment disappear. Some of us wish that it would, but unfortunately that is not how it works.
Determination & Dedication Are The Keys For Success
Making The Decision Becoming an entrepreneur myself was the easiest "yes," I have ever given in my life. Did I have doubts? Yes. However, I find it to be important to not let self doubt get in the way of success. If you are given the tools to succeed, then why would you not take advantage of that? For me, I jump in head and feet first. I'm not a boss, I am a leader. My concern is helping others succeed in any way I can. Whether I do that through this blog or through my business, I will achieve that. Want to know how I know? Because I am determined and dedicated to plugging in and learning the tools I need to succeed. Do you know how many people don't know about how many opportunities there are today to be successful? The real question is how bad do you want success? Do you go home and sit on the couch for hours at a time or are you always learning more ways to succeed? Do you surround yourself with other successful people who motivate you? Or do you surround yourself with those who are negative and telling you that you'll never make it?
How Blogging Has Transformed Me
My Confidence was Shot After being told you are not good enough for so long, your own thoughts start to lie to you and you start to think that about yourself. For years, I was made fun of, pushed around, taking advantage of, etc. Things were said in different types of situations. When I would get excited about an opportunity, it would be shot down because it might be a scam or because they didn't think I was capable of doing it. Even though I may know that I am extremely capable, that doesn't mean that I don't want a vote of confidence.
Emotions Are Powerful
Emotions Should Not Control You Do you ever feel like your emotions come out before your words do? Do your emotions speak louder than your words? Do your emotions control you instead of you controlling them? Personally, I always said I wear my heart on my sleeve but it wasn't until this year that I realized what that can do in negative situations. I am very aware that my emotions sometimes are overwhelming. Over the years, I have learned to control them better, but there are days when I let my emotions get the best of me.
What is My Passion?
Introducing My Passion Everybody has something that they are passionate about and it just so happens that mine is music. I love all things to do with music. I took piano lessons from the most amazing piano instructor, who taught me to never give up and stay confident. There were times where I struggled to find the motivation to practice, but I did and I am so glad that my mom and my instructor never let me give up.
Money isn't Everything, But Your Happiness is.
Living in a World Obsessed with Money In the world we live in, it can be difficult not to focus solely on how much money you make. Is the job you're at contributing to your happiness or your stress? If your answer was stress, why are you staying? Is it because you can't afford bills without it? Or are you staying because you love getting a hefty paycheck and to you that is more important than your mental and emotional health?
Never give up on your dreams
Surround Yourself with People Who Believe in You There are people in every person's life who will tell them that their dreams are unachievable and not realistic. Ultimately, the one who makes the decision on whether or not you can achieve your dream or not is you. If you want to achieve your dreams, it is important to surround yourself with people who encourage you and believe in you. People who doubt you are only going to make you doubt yourself, and you don't need that.
You are Important
Stand Up for Yourself If someone ever tells you that you are not important, please let it go in one ear and out the other. No one should ever make you feel small and unimportant. It is important to surround yourself with people who make you feel important and loved. If someone comes up to you and is making you feel horrible, STAND UP FOR YOURSELF! I cannot stress this enough. Ladies and Gentlemen, let me tell you that I am the most non confrontational person you will ever meet. For years, I would let people make fun of me and get away with it because I didn't want to say anything to them. I didn't want to get into a fight or anything of the sort. I wanted people to like me and that was all I cared about.
The Importance of Women Encouraging other Women
The World We Live in Today Being kind is the most powerful thing that you can be at any given time. In today's world women need encouragement. Now, I am by no means saying that men don't need encouragement as well but what I am focused on throughout this blog is women helping women. First, you never know what someone is going through. Be there to encourage someone else in their time of stress. Don't listen to rumors, or the nasty things a person says on social media about your friend. I think it is important to connect on social media.
Deployment VS Wife: Part 1
Saying Goodbye Saying goodbye to him was the hardest thing that I have ever done. We were newlyweds. This wasn't how it was supposed to be. We were supposed to pick a house together or at least make a house on base our home together. I didn't want to leave him. We were only together two weeks after we got married. I wanted to stay all the way up to him getting on the bus to leave. However, he was trying to look out for my best interest even if I couldn't see it at the time.
If I had a penny for every time someone told me that I care too much about other people, I would be rich at this point in my life and I am only 23. You see, I personally think that if we were all there for each other and took the time to listen to each other, the world would be a better place. Many people get ignored today because no one wants to hear them out. Unfortunately, in many cases, people feel they are too busy to listen. The difference between me and the neighbor who politely stands there pretending to listen is, I actually listen and care about what you are saying.
