Understanding your goals to help you achieve them.
Writing when You don't Want to
Let me tell you what it is like for me to write at this stage of my life. Here I am staring at my computer screen, two pillows supporting my aching back, a soft blanket wrapped around my feet and the sound of the passing cars momentarily taking me back to the present, I gathered all my fleeting will to type words. It doesn't matter whether it makes sense right now. It will make sense, for whatever it is worth. I pressed the keyboard and wrote whatever word, my fidgeting brain processed for me. What a whirlwind of agonising thoughts. I was transported back to the past and forced to remember what it is like in reality. As if a syringe containing a considerable dosage of envy was injected in my blood, I felt the pangs of jealousy. The night was still and everyone else I know must be asleep. Look how tempting the silence is. Slumbering is sweet! And tomorrow they are ready for the day while you detest the sound of the passing vehicles and the ray of sunlight hitting right through your face. Was it me talking to myself in the middle of the night? I swear I heard someone say, "Do you really want to go through this again? I mean what for?" As if to highlight the err in this decision, Simon Sinek's voice that tells me to 'know your why' was reverberating in my head. I should have a badge of honour in watching too many podcasts. "What a wonderful machine you are," I silenced my mind. I know how overthinking can be quite paralysing. I decided to just take the plunge and whatever comes, I'll take it with courage. If that sounded brave and hopeful, you read me wrong. I'm apprehensive and if I'm being honest, I'm a bit disappointed towards myself. "What is it about you that couldn't seem to divorce the love for words and for writing?" I heard myself out loud. "I don't have to be reminded of the arduous process, the sleepless nights, the struggle against self doubt, I know all of it, thank you very much!"

Dear Future Mother
Many young adults at my age don't think about parenthood right away however, I imagine myself being a mother for many reasons: hardships I've been through, my passion for helping children, wanting to be a role model and the will to start my own family. On the other hand, my mind isn't focused on parenthood, because I don't believe that I have the right personality for it. I'm very extroverted, but also extremely introverted when I want to be. I value sleep and regular self-care, and there wouldn't be many opportunities for self-care and sleep if I was a parent. When the kids get older, that will be a different story, but it's not like I'll get to pick when I want to sleep or relax, depending on what the kid desires to do or the issues he/she is facing one day or night. That being said, I believe that I'll make an amazing parents and will have one when the time is right.

The essence and intent of life, the entire goal, and the end of human existence is happiness.
Shift Failure into Something Positive
There are two types of people who can fail. There are two types of people who can handle failure well: those who do it well and those who don’t. Many of us fall in the latter category.

What Are You Capable Of?
Have you ever asked yourself that? Have you truly wondered what could be possible if you stopped saying that you’re not enough? I have a friend, he’s a veteran and a fair bit older than I am. But for as long as I can remember, he’s been a friend and a solid mentor through most of my life. As I grew older though, the lessons he taught became fewer and fewer.
Dear 24-Year-Old Talia
On Monday November 8th 2021, I will be 24 years old. While I'm still 23 years old, I want to make the best of each day, and most importantly, not being hard of myself if I don’t have the best day. I also want to write this letter to remind myself of how and who I want to be when I'm 24, as well as the things I want to do to make me feel joyful and worthwhile everyday. I also want to write this letter to remind myself of my past accomplishments and failures I've had for the last few years.

5 False Beliefs About Working On Your Dreams
Are you interested in starting a business? Are you interested in writing a book? Are you looking to pursue a creative career? There's a false belief for every yes. These false beliefs have been ingrained in society to the point that many people don't believe they can follow their dreams. You are either told it doesn't work, or that you are stupid for believing that you can succeed on that path. Many of us throw in the towel.
Age is just a Number
As a society we've all growing up being told that by a certian age we need to have a career, family, be married etc or it's just never going to happen. When we are in highschool the world seems within our reach, like anything could happen. As life goes on, things change, and in a lot of ways we become jaded. I remember for me I had so many dreams, and I was always told they were too big and that I needed to be more realistic. So because I didn't love myself enough to believe in myself I became more realistic and here I am 12 years into my career and I am so miserable and bored. But everytime I think of leaving and going after my passions I get scared and have a lot of self doubt. Plus i think well I am 34 now, and how realistic is it that I can start over, and also have my dreams come true.
