Rush to the Altar


Marriage. Certain women fantasize about this moment since they are little girls. A general consensus of men is not too fond of it. Marriage is many things for many people. What I want to talk about is the rush to the altar. Why do certain individuals feel the rush to get married? It seems for some women when they reach the age of 30, there is a pressure to get married. In my opinion this is a dangerous way of thinking. Marriage is just not a fancy wedding and an exotic honeymoon. It takes work and life long sacrifice. The rush to the altar is pointless. Do not feel compelled to get married because you have reached a certain age or all your peers are getting married. I see this more with women. I have never heard of a man being in a rush to get married. I could be wrong lol. Enjoy your time being single. If you want to get married, that is your decision but do not rush this decision and obsess about it. Slow down and think about the rush to the altar.

Learn To Say No

No. That is actually a complete sentence. However many people have a problem saying this short two letter word. A lot of people are overcommitted, tired, and stressed by always saying yes. Saying No is a liberating thing to say. Say yes to something or someone that is worth it.  Many people live in regret because of the choices that have made. Today is a brand new day, do something different. Live your best life and make your own decisions. Do what is best for you. Learn to say no.

Confessions of a Mysterious Gal...

I’m a very private person. It is hard for me to be vulnerable to people. I like being mysterious. However, I think it shields me from having meaningful deep relationships. Is there anyone else who is very private and likes to shield themselves from the public? As for me as I blog I know I have to peel apart some parts of me. It is easier said than done. I just love being mysterious. Should I change or stay the same? Only time will tell…

Timing

I just realized that I have not posted for two months. What has happened? A few things. Grad school, working on the new website and just pure stress. The timing of my life is pretty interesting. What I planned for has not happened the way I wanted. That is life. Timing is based on what God wants for your life. What do you do while you wait? That is a great question and something that I am figuring out right now as I type away. Timing...

Social Media Addiction

Social media has been part of our lives for almost two decades. However like anything in life it can be abused. That abuse then becomes an addiction. I have to admit I have a love hate relationship with social media. It can be a source of entertainment or superficial connection with people. However, certain people are addicted to it in one way or another. Do you constantly make live videos on Facebook and Instagram? Do you head to your smartphone as soon as you wake up? Do you scroll endlessly down your Twitter timeline or Facebook timeline and lose track of time? Do you check your notifications every second it blows off? Do you say everything that is on your mind every day on Facebook? Do you have to snap all your day's events every day? Do you watch Youtube tutorials all day on your free time? Yeah, you have a problem you are addicted to social media. Remember there was life before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Snapchat, Tumblr, etc Take time to socialize offline. Go to the gym and do not snap your workout. Lol. Create content for Youtube instead of consuming it. Cook that Thai recipe you have been holding off on. Take a walk in the park. There is more to life than social media. Get off the matrix and tune into 3D reality. This is all coming from a recovering social media addict. You will thank me later.

The Death of 9-5

We now live in a new shift of economy. The death of the 9-5, as I put it. There are now many ways to make an income outside a conventional job. The rise of Uber, TaskRabbit, Airbnb, Postmates and much more have created a new income generating system. Everyone seems to have a gig full time or part time. Freelancing seems to be the way to go. What does that mean for you? I believe it means more options to make a living. I have used this new concept to make an income myself. Have anyone freelanced or have an unconventional job such as Uber? What are the pros and cons? Do you think this will die out anytime soon? Is this the death of the 9-5?

Information Overload

We live in an age where information is at our fingertips. However, at different times in my life, I have experienced information overload. What does that entail? Maybe researching a topic of interest on Google and Youtube and feeling overwhelmed with the information. In my own personal life, it means signing up for personal development courses for free or at affordable prices and not checking my inbox for the course information. I have signed up for Udemy courses and have yet to complete the courses. It is just too much information. I love learning but at times there is too much information to process and implement in my life. Granted I will be going to grad school in a week and wonder if I will use the same logic. When is information too much for you? Do people really implement the information they receive? What do you think comment below:
