Last week, I was on the low-low mentally because I had no sense of direction; I was confused because someone who I loved very much returned into my life but I didn’t want to give up my progress for him.

Growing up, I’ve always heard people saying that you go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, retire, and then die.  Now that I am currently in the working part of my life, I refuse to be a part of this rat race. There is just no way my life is ‘destined’ to be so dull and boring and with no sense of purpose. What...

Step out of your comfort zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” It’s sad when someone gives up on their dreams and more often than not, many of us throw in the towel for good way too early. Many times we end up in situations and we begin to bicker and get miserable forgetting one important point, we are the only ones that are holding ourselves back. There are many people right now that are intimidated by you because they know your potential, they see what you can become. Instead of discovering and capitalizing on our talent, we keep it in reserve until we lose it. After conducting my research I found that one in every five respondents stated that situations change and their dream of becoming the next big thing gets placed on the top of the bookshelf. “My child comes first.” “I'm getting ...

The Most Important Things I Learned About Myself, I Learned Through Freelancing

I never expected to become a freelance writer. Yet, 14 years, an MSc, two kids, and a failed marriage later, here I am. I have built a successful freelance writing business that has allowed me to have the freedom to structure my work schedule the way I want, work from where I want, and be there for my kids as they grew up. I was home for them before and after school. I went on all their field trips. I volunteered at their school all the time. Now, they’re in high school, my oldest set to graduate this year, and I am turning my focus more and more on myself and what I want the second half of my life to be. I don’t like the term “midlife crisis.” That makes this time in life sound horrifying, a time when I have so much to look forward to and so many ambitions. But first, let’s go b...
