My Worst Advice: Being Down In The Dumps

\down in the dumpsWhen you are feeling lonely, frustrated, angry, sad, worthless, agitated, depressed, or any other negative feeling that you just can’t seem to shake…it will probably get worse before it gets better.

The reality of life is that sometimes we will like there is no digging out of the great hole that seems to be getting deeper and deeper everyday. But that is all part of challenging yourself, growing into a stronger person, and gaining experience in life. Read More

My Worst Advice: How To Get The Job!

Hello all you lovely smiling faces!

Today, my guest post on My Worst Advice is all about getting a job! I say this because as a recent graduate, and having landed myself somehow in two jobs, I have a thing or two to share about this! Please note before I begin my tale that I am not licensed to give any advice. I’m not a therapist, nor a professional job helper-getter. I am simply a 24 year old who has gotten herself two jobs. So, brace yourself kids because here we go!

Here’s my worst advice for finding a job:

• If you’re about to graduate college, start looking for jobs early! Chances are there won’t be a ton available, but it never hurts to make some phone calls and meet some faces. If you’re graduating in May, and you start looking for jobs in March, you may find that jobs are scarcer than wine after I go to Target! I give you this nugget from experience. I didn’t have a big person job after graduating college, I was a nanny for a couple months after graduation. This is okay as well, because a job is better than no job! Looking back, I wish I had started looking earlier. Do as I say, not as I do, children! Read More

Ever Notice Luck Comes In Waves…

Recently had some bad luck roll my way with some materialistic things happen that cost me some big bucks. While it was becoming frustrating every where I turned there was another bill, sometimes that’s just way your luck comes about. I kept telling myself that I was thankful enough to have the means to pay my bills while also having a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and food in my stomach.

I can’t even tell you when it began, but there it was right after the holiday season it seemed like things were just building up for the worse. One thing right away the other and I was getting bogged down for a while.

2 Types of People: Doers & Sayers

We have heard the phrase “actions speak louder than words” plenty of times, but that phrase like many other clichés are just part of our language storage and doesn’t usually get the full credit that they deserve. It wasn’t until recently when I was getting to know a coworker that this phrase began to really play into my view of people I interact with on a regular basis and those people that I meet.

It All Started When…

well done better than saidThe conversation I was having with my coworker we were chatting about what high school we went to, what year we graduated, and our free-time interests. It was then the next question he asked that threw me off, he asked what my zodiac sign was. Now I’m not one to really follow zodiac signs or horoscopes, but I know there are many people that follow that religiously. Read More

Open Letter: My Worst Advice for Sara Bareilles

First off this is not a negative or trolling letter whatsoever, so if you are thrown off by the title I suggest you leave or read this to help you understand my purpose. I’m also not a “special” fan that wants a wish to come true, but instead just another listener and admirer of Sara Bareilles. I have a lot of respect and gratitude for Sara for her courage and great example she sets for the future generation. As part of my 2015 mantra I’m going to reach out to inspirational people that have made even a small impact in my life and encourage them to keep in inspiring those around them. This is my #Inspire Open Letter to her to start 2015. Read More
