Question of The Day – The Measure of Life

I wanted to do something different than my typical Saturday post.  Therefore, this Saturday, I want to present to you all a question of the day!

Today’s question is:

How should we measure life?  Should it be by achievements?  Memories?  Years?  Or something else?

Drop it like it’s HOT

Over the past 10 years or so, I’ve tried just about every type of workout class one can think of, including pole dancing!!  Now, before you begin to judge, don’t knock it before you try it.

I know most people associate pole dancing with erotica and yes, I can certainly understand why.  But, there are studios that offer pole dancing workouts that are intended to be a part of your everyday fitness routine.

What you should be doing in your 30’s

I’ve found that your 30’s mostly consist of building and planning.  Whether you are building your finances, your relationships, your career, or family, you’re essentially working off a blueprint to create the next 40-50 years of your life.

You may ask how or why did I come up with this theory.  Well, in your 20’s typically you’re finishing college.  Perhaps still living with your parents or maybe even venturing off into your own thing but there’s a lot of trial and error during this period.  Continue reading

The Nitty-Gritty of being an Entrepreneur

Over the past year, I’ve highlighted several different entrepreneurs on the blog.  There is a special admiration that I have for anyone who’s had a vision, written the vision, and has made a blueprint of how they wish to carry out their dreams.  I truly admire those people.

What I do not admire is how people like to try to force entrepreneurship onto others. Honestly, nothing bothers me more than hearing someone say work for yourself and not for someone else. Reason being? It doesn’t work that way for everyone.  Continue reading

Becoming

Michelle Obama.  Some would say, former First Lady of the United States, but I consider her to still be my First Lady.  Her book Becoming, a memoir which was published in November of 2018 soared past record sales for the year within 15 days.

I chose to purchase the audio version of the book, just because I could listen to the book while at work and therefore killing two birds with one stone.  The book was broken down into three sections; Becoming Me, Becoming Us, and Becoming More.  Listening to Mrs. Obama as she carefully read each word with grace and dignity gave me a much deeper appreciation for her as person and a much clearer view into her life as a daughter, sister, mother, friend, wife, as well as a humanitarian.  Her personal reflections are mesmerizing as she tells her truth as only she could tell it.

Brick by Brick

When a relationship doesn’t pan out to be what we expect it to be or what our version of a particular relationship should look like we begin to build mental walls.  The walls that we build are set into place brick by brick; because while we hope the relationship has potential we don’t want to personally set ourselves up for failure.  At best, we are trying to protect the heart.

I believe this to be true for all relationships.  Whether it’s a romantic relationship, a friendship, family, business, or casual. Continue reading

Ear Hustle Podcast

I figured now would be the perfect time to tell you all about another Podcast that has become one of my favorites.

If you’re not familiar with the term Ear Hustle it simply means trying to listen in on someone else’s conversation.  So with this podcast they are giving us the opportunity to listen to inmates tell their stories on why they are in prison and about their every day life behind bars. Continue reading
