The Importance Of Having A Mentor

So what does a mentor do? Mentors are those generous people who are open to sharing their knowledge, wisdom, experience, insight and offering their counsel. The best mentors are great listeners who understand your challenges and offer different strategies and ideas to not only help you overcome obstacles but excel at them. Mentors will often see something in you that you may not see yourself.

Are You Settling In Life?

Can I ask you a personal question? Are you settling? In your love life, are you settling for something that is okay rather than striving for something that is extraordinary? Have you ever, in the stillness of a date night or on the morning of New Year's day gotten a glimpse of the truth? The truth that maybe you don't love him the way he deserves to be loved, that he doesn't love you the way you deserve to be loved?

Let More Joy And Play Into Your Life

We don't spend enough time doing the things that bring us joy. This hit home for me many months ago when someone asked me what I did for fun. Because I love what I do, I immediately referenced my job. However, I struggled to answer the next question: "What do you do when you're not working?"

Can Privacy And Social Media Coexist?

Recent experiences on Instagram got me thinking about the line between being open and too open, between sharing and oversharing. Is it possible to share personal details and pictures from my life and still be somewhat private? Is that even possible in the digital world? Is social media making the idea of privacy obsolete?

A Rebound Could Be What Your Breakup Needs

Like most things in life, there is no one right way to get over a relationship that has ended. So if you have had a recent breakup, go ahead and get back out there like Blake and Gwen. Or feel free to treat yourself to some ice cream, rom com's and alone time. Either way will lead you to a better understanding of yourself.

How Would You Define Yourself in 5 Words?

Our personal brand evolves with us. This is why it's important to continually check in and re-evaluate how we define it. For me, I know I need to take stock again when my gut instinct tells me I am growing and changing. Lately, I have found myself feeling a bit antsy, and I thought revisiting my Five I AMs might help reset my priorities.

Your Destiny Is Determined by Your Decisions

I believe we are in full control of our choices and that our actions, in response to what fate offers us, matter. We are here to learn lessons and the hard decisions we have to make are what helps us grow as humans. Our destiny is not something we can sit by and let happen to us.
