Perspective 

I'm a proponent of therapy.  I think the objectivity of a third party to help you look at things with a clearer focus and vision, to allow you to get out of your own way, can be very healthy. About six months ago a friend told me I should see a grief counselor. In a … Continue reading Perspective 

Get Through the Grit

There are times in our lives, maybe even throughout our daily routine when we come across metaphorical quicksand. We feel that we are stuck and maybe even worse than that we feel that we are sinking.  Whether it is at work, in relationships or in our own minds, the grit we come across can either … Continue reading Get Through the Grit

An Extra Day

Leap Day. February 29th. It comes once every four years – a novelty like a shooting star. It's somewhat extraordinary when you think about it. I say somewhat because science has boiled it down to a basic understanding. We really get 365 and 1/4 days each year so those quarters add up to an extra … Continue reading An Extra Day

What is Love?

We all face it whether we are searching for a job or navigating relationships. Perhaps why no one talks about rejection is because it hits us … Continue reading Rejection Awaits

#MillennialMonday : It Takes a Village to Build a Career

It's not what you know, it's who you know. You may have heard this before when it comes to finding a job or (even once you have a job) that coveted promotion.  Do I think it's true? Yes and no. Do I think it's purely who you know that can get you ahead in the … Continue reading #MillennialMonday : It Takes a Village to Build a Career

24: The year of building the beyond

When I dream, I dream big. I can envision the happy ending and the amazing success story. The only problem is I leave my dreams up in the sky and take little time to build the ladder of goals that will help me climb my way up.  I seemed to have a knack for letting … Continue reading 24: The year of building the beyond
