Are you a procrastinator? Do you wait for tomorrow to fulfill your dreams. Then this one is for you. This post was inspired by a post I recently read about this 29-year young, ambitious woman who's full of dreams. Sounds like me, right? The big difference is, she might not make it to see 40.
I'd like to dedicate this piece to my dear friend. She called me last night -we hadn't talked on the phone or in person for at least 2-3 months- to tell me how much my previous post. This meant a lot, as this is exactly the reason I do this. But then she asked me a question and it was a question I had asked myself many times. How do I keep going when everything is going to shit? Had she asked me this 4 years ago, I would've told her: by surviving. But now, in 2017, I know how to keep going even when everything seems to fall apart and I want to share it with you.
I wrote this post on October 2nd. I contemplated about writing this post, because I don’t like to talk about my downs. They make me feel vulnerable. And I hate feeling vulnerable, but fact is, I want my blog to stay real. And it wouldn’t be real if there aren’t any downs. For the past few weeks, I’ve experienced many ups. However, we all know the saying: what goes up, must come down. And on this day I reached my down.
One thing that gets me going every morning, is by listening to podcasts. Whether it's an hour long self-affirmation or a five-minute motivation, I enjoy the comfort of receiving positivity without having to stop my daily activities. I literally have a whole playlist of podcasts that I repeatedly listen to while I get ready for work. Which is a great way to get my energy going. Because a good start of the day can lead to an even better day, which can lead to a great week, I want to share some of my favorite podcasts with you.
Well, queen of wishing c'est moi. Unconsciously so. I don't know how many times I've said I wanted something and got mad (not frustrated, just straight up furious) my dreams weren't becoming reality. It wasn't until this year that I had made one of my resolutions to actually see my dreams come to life that I found out that I wasn't being SMART.
