The internet is crazy

The world is weird. The internet is crazy. Earlier this month, I joined Twitter as I thought it would be all fun and jokes. Whew chile, was I wrong. This morning I had to delete the app from my phones as the negativity and level of toxicity are beyond what I can manage.  Not to say that this app isn’t insightful but people are so full of opinions and everybody thinks they are right; there are people with opinions fighting others with opinions. Nobody has the right to do anything they want, as far as I can see, if you do, people hate. If you don’t people hate. Either case it’s not a win for any party.  Twitter was founded in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams. It was created with the hopes that people could share posts and interact with others ...

A lesson in growth

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. Not to spill out much of my personal life, but that one incident really opened my eyes to a whole new life, some may call it reality.  In the midst of all of this, I noticed one thing in particular that a lot of persons don’t seem to give much attention. 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 ...

Opportunity for growth?

I am considered to be an alpha female so most times people automatically assume that my fierceness outside is reflected inside as well. The truth is, everyone deserves to be checked upon.  What inspired me to write this? Today, one of my colleagues told me that my supervisor openly stated to a manager in earshot of other colleagues that she is trying to get rid of me. I was shocked, not because of what she said because and if I am honest, I expected it but she must have said it loud enough for someone to hear and return the news to me. A million things ran through my head as even though I need to be out of that place, I have only begun my process of working on two major goals. In the midst of all of these thoughts, I was able to stop and think about it seriously for a m...
