About time to share some of my favorite articles of late
“20 Resolutions for 20-Somethings” (Sometimes Always Never Blog) some of my favorites below
* Get out of bad relationships & pursue relationships that fill you up – Supposedly when you find your future spouse, you just know. Well, finding those good friends can feel somewhat the same. They accept your best (and maybe your not so great) qualities and embrace your quirks.
* Stop hating your body ~ Just like life, you only have one body so treat it well. Lots of veggies, protein, and sweet treat every now and then will do the body and soul well.
* Explore your city
* Break free of social media and be present – Facebook, email, and Instagram will be there in a couple hours. There’s no need to have your nose buried in your phone for all hours of the day. You may very well ruin relationships by doing this, so beware.
* Keeping Perspective with life – Check out Katie Kempner’s blog — fittingly called Perspectives with Katie — which highlights women’s path to finding balance in life.
“What Deleting A Person From Social Media Really Means” (Elite Daily) – Just another way of breaking free from bad relationships and living in the moment. There will be people who come in and out of your lives but that doesn’t mean you have to let them define who you are or who you want to be.
“Work Life Balance is Going to Be Dead” (LinkedIn)
Are you working to live or living to work? Is there a happy medium? Oh isn’t that the golden questions my friends. How much of our lives are based upon what we want to do rather than what we think we should do or what we think others want us to do?
This article discusses the idea of creating a work life balance or rather work life integration. Like many others, I would love to merge my passions in life with the work I do on a daily basis. The problem is, how long do I have to wait to do this? Sure, it may not be my first job out of college, or even my second. But those jobs have helped me learn key skills and helped expose me to other jobs and opportunities.
There are days where I stay for 9 to 10 hours to finish my work. There are days where I leave right at 5:30 in order to have dinner with my friends. I make sure that I have enough social time to keep me motivated and happy, but enough focus at work to make a good impression and gain the respect of my peers and bosses. If you aren’t happy with your life, don’t complain because you have just as much ability to change it as you do to sit and complain. Remember, you have just this one life, make it count.
