It’s Okay To Fail

It’s okay to fail. These are four little words I have to remind myself of daily. I’m the first to admit that I am afraid to fail. I’m afraid that all my hard work now isn’t going to result in anything. I’m afraid that I sometimes make decisions that will hinder my plans for the future. The thing is that fear of failing shouldn’t stop us from living. It shouldn’t stop us from doing that one or multiple things we are passionate about. However, fear is paralyzing. It makes us settle for what we think is best or settle for what we think we deserve. It's Okay To Fail View Post

I Am Thankful

ThankfulHave you ever had those moments when you realize how fortunate you are to have the simple things in life. This morning as I stood in my tub taking a warm shower I started thinking about how fortunate and lucky I am to be able to have clean, warm water everyday to shower with. It’s so crazy how the little things spark those little moments of gratitude and realizations in your life. A lot of times I go through my day not even thinking about the things I have and how fortunate I am. This past week really made me think about how much I take for granted. Like three years ago I didn’t have a car so I had to either take the bus or a cab to work now I have my own car and I’m able to get from point A and B without having to worry about missing the bus or spending a lot of money on cab fare. Like sometimes I sit in my car while driving through New York and I start having these mini moments of excitement because I have my license after doubting myself in the past after I failed my test twice. I also have mini moments of excitements when I jump into bed and my bed is warm, fluffy and I am comfortable. I also have those moments when I’m just so grateful that my mom and dad are still alive and in my life. I am the first to admit that sometimes I tend to not care about or put much thought into issues when they don’t directly affect me but this past week when I heard about the water issue in Flint my heart broke for the residents in that community. It’s just so sad that today in 2016 in the United States communities have to deal with unsafe and unhealthy water conditions. It’s just so unfair.

What I Learned From Virtual Internships

FullSizeRender-3In the last year, I’ve had two virtual internships. One of them I’m thankfully still doing on a more permanent basis and the other I had to quit due to the lack of professionalism. I will admit virtual internships can be challenging and time-consuming. It can also be very hard and frustrating. It can also be the most rewarding experience ever. Do I like doing virtual internships? Yes and No. With a virtual internship, there is the prospect of convenience and then there is the thing of not getting what you really want out of it. I’ve only had two virtual internships so I am not an expert but today I wanted to share with you guys some tips I think you guys should use when doing a virtual internship. View Post

I Need To Start Living For Me

10464086_332469723578338_1159597716348183434_nHonestly, since I’ve been in Florida I’ve been thinking so much of the future and all that it holds. For the first time in my life I can say that I am afraid of what’s to come because it’s so uncertain. My mind has been on overdrive and I’ve been just making plans, scrapping plans, changing plans. I’m so nervous. It really takes bad things in your life to awaken you. I recently received some devastating news about someone and on the surface I’m fine but at the core I’m broken by this news. Someone made the statement recently “Out of all of them I always thought that she would have made something of herself,” and honestly it shook me. It sort of made me look at my life through a translucent lens and I swear I saw a future that I didn’t like. It just made me think about the future a lot. Right now I am living with so much uncertainty in my soul. I’m trying hard to figure out and find the life that I was meant to live because I know in my heart God didn’t put me here on this earth to just live and die. I know in my heart that I am here for a purpose but figuring out that purpose is just so hard. I struggle so much internally and I know I am the only person who can pull myself out of this struggle. I have a year to figure what’s next before my life turns upside down and I really hope I muster up the strength, faith and courage to execute all the things I want to do. I hate living in fear of the unknown. I hate that I let my own insecurities paralyze me and I hate that I let what other people think get to me. I need to start living for me. I need to start living for strength, a purpose, and a will.
