As an almost Type A personality, I love working and finishing my tasks. When I am typing away on my laptop, completing my assignments before time, it leaves me with a deep sense of accomplishment. I thrive when I hit the submit button before everyone else does.
Growing into womanhood was never easy for any female throughout the history of women but there are 3 things every girl should know how to do before leaving home that can make the transition fairly easy.
We are living through unprecedented times in all areas of the world. Darkness seems to be floating to the surface everywhere it can and we are being forced to try and understand it; or more so, understand what it needs from us. Individually, interpersonally, and collectively we are being given the chance to confront the foundations of what keeps us in fear or in any level of dis-ease. Where it manifests as a challenge and where we can also choose to see this as an opportunity for personal growth! Life as we know it is changing radically, and what could possibly be more radical than absolute authenticity?
"How do I get other people to pay attention to me?"
Every person and situation is different. Our needs for acceptance and recognition vary to a great degree. Some people could care less while others need lots of love. It's perfectly normal. We are all unique no matter how universal some basic human behaviors are.
Her look describes exactly how I feel. I am wondering to myself “Why am I now procrastinating instead of writing my first viral post?” I sat down to finish a post I’ve been working on about 1 and 1/2 hours ago. Unlike the disciplined steps, I took yesterday. I didn’t ask Siri to set a 50-minute timer today.
So I kept getting these "Creator" email requests and I was like LordT what in the world has someone signed me up for now?? It almost felt like a group text on my computer LOL
A key part of adulthood is being able to know the differences between knowing ‘what we want’ vs. knowing ‘what we need.’ Understanding that you must be able to divide up the two categories fairly and also be able to balance them healthily with our seemingly limitless desires at times is key to being a fully formed individual. As children, we are taught to temper our desires to manageable levels and to remember to not be selfish especially when it conflicts with the needs of others.
With a second wave of Covid Positive cases spiking all over the United Stated again (please wear your masks people), businesses are sending employees home for the second time this year. During the first big wave, I had an essential job where about 50% of my managing was done from home, but the other 50% had to be done in the field. I'm now in a new position that could be done at home in full. We have a meeting later to determine what positions will be going home so I am fully prepared to make the move back into a home office.

Stop for a moment and think about these numbers. Wherever you are in life, one of these numbers could have been and could still be your last.
Some days, a dragon comes to your village before you have a chance to go to its den and slay it. The brutal, ferocious beast sneaks up on you, when your defenses are weak and your back is turned. This usually unfolds when you have been absent from the work required of you, when you have not yet healed the scars from previous battles, when your mind has been elsewhere and your guards have been busy dealing with the unnecessary. You know when this time comes that the fault is of your own, all this obsession and desire, all this external validation, external happiness you seek. You get cloudy at times. Fear blows like the wind, rushing the heart along, closer each moment towards its end, total annihilation.
After I moved into my dormitory in Germany for my year abroad, I cried. A lot.
I was sitting on the windowsill, staring at the grey wall which covered most of my view, and I thought, “Why me? Why do I always get the worst room?”
Stressing comes from one source, and that's negative energy. You may think it's from the actual problem, but it's not, it's how you look at the problem.
