¡Buenas noches amigos! (I wish you all could see just how much use I'm getting out of Google Translate.) I hope everyone had a great Monday! I'm taking some time to rest up this week before I start my new job next Monday!! Woo hoo!
Even though I've been relaxing all summer (thank you Jesus!), I really feel like I'm coming alive. Like my eyes have finally been opened. And I'm glad about it. I mean, it's been nice to not have to think about things for a while, but to be honest, when I wasn't thinking, I felt like I had lost touch with who I really want to be. I guess you could say, I stopped dreaming. And you should never stop dreaming. EVER.
I've mentioned on here before how big of a daydreamer I am. I've cut back some because I wasn't really living in and soaking up the present moment. But I'm always daydreaming and imaging what life will be like for me in the next two, three, four or five years. And it's not just on a personal level. I mean, I daydream about meeting my future husband on a beach in South America or on the streets of London all the time. And how much fun our wedding reception will be. And even the fun and funky names we'll give our kids. I even daydream what I would do if I won the lottery (mom and I had a full convo on what I would do if I won $10 million). But I also daydream about my future career. Although I know I probably won't be a member of a world famous female pop group, I still keep it floating in the back of my mind. (And don't act like you never wanted to be a member of The Spice Girls before!) But today, my "dream career" (if you can even call it that, because I think all dreams are achievable) just came to me!
A few days ago, I was really beating myself up about not becoming a surgeon. I felt like I failed my parents. I mean, they spent all this money on school and I decided to get a Bachelor of Commerce & Administration in Marketing. The least I could've done was get a degree in something like Accounting or Education. Something that would allow me to get a "real" job. Don't get me wrong here. Marketing has a very broad career field. You can go from sales, to consumer behavior, to market research, to sports marketing, to advertising/public relations and so on. It's a broad field and I knew that when I decided to major in it. I also thought I would be working in sports marketing right now too, but that's not happening. And honestly, I'm actually pretty happy about that. But, I also didn't think I'd be working an associate job either with my marketing degree. So you can see why I was feeling down.
But I had to take a moment and realize a few things:
1) I'm a fresh college graduate. Seriously! I've only been out of the classroom for nearly 3 months.
2) I was blessed to be able to attend and finish college. I know quite a few people who were not able to do either of those.
3) I may not be working my dream job right now, but damn it (excuse my language) I'm not working a job that I dread either!
So, after assuring myself of the above, I just stopped thinking about work. And have you noticed, once you stop thinking about something, it just comes to you naturally? It's like when you're looking for the back to your earring on a carpeted floor. At first, you can't find it, but eventually you end up stepping on it! That's how it was for me! Well, I didn't step on anything, but a few images crossed my path. Since I'm always daydreaming about traveling and I'm really taking a liking to living a positive, healthy and spiritual life, I've finally figured out that I will be pursuing a career as a Lifestyle & Travel blogger/writer in the near future!!! They always say "you'll never be out of a job if you're doing what you love". Starting today, I plan on mapping out my future travel destinations and finding ways to live a healthy, happy and prosperous life while hopefully helping others do the same. Look out world, here I come!! So be on the look out for my blog to gradually evolve over the next year or so! :)
Oh my goodness! Hello, hello, hello!!! I recently took a little break from blogging but I'm glad to be back. And I hope you all are happy to have me back.
Last weekend I was finally able to take a little trip from home and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even if it was only about an hour away from home. It's mapped as Birmingham, Alabama, but it's been given the name "The Magic City". I was able to hit some of the landmarks of this large city and photographed most of it. Let's recap...
Good Morning dearies! I hope everyone enjoyed their long, festive weekend!
I was watching The TODAY Show yesterday when this segment about college graduates living at home and relying on their parents for financial assistance. First and foremost, it's so nice to know that there are other individuals that are in the same boat as me! Kind of in limbo right now, scouring for work and eager to get out into the real world. But what really surprised me, was how different I am than others when it comes to finances. Because of yesterday's segment, I've created a simple and easy to use monthly budget plan and I'm ready to share it with all you.
*Be sure to watch the video above first!*
OMG I am soooooo happy to be back! I've been recuperating for the past three days and my, my my...have I got a lot to tell you all.
But first, I want to give you all a new playlist! It's 4th of July weekend and you'll need some good music to last you the next three days! There's a lot of good, summertime music on here!
