Today, I had a very unfortunate situation come my way in regards to a job application. I won’t go into too many details but needless to say, it didn’t pan out how I had wanted it to. Instead of being sad or upset I decided to look at the positives of this horrible job opportunity.
One thing I know I have a hard time with is confidence when it comes to applying for jobs. I’m afraid to come across as too much, or the opposite, not showcase myself enough. Well, this time I applied over confidently! I souped up my experience(no lies, just some better wording), and I stated that it would be tremendously beneficial to have me as an employee.
Secondly, when I get to the interview part of a job opportunity I clam up and get extremely nervous. It’s like being a little kid all over again. Not this time though! I spoke with poise and integrity and made sure I conveyed my confident demeanor.
Regardless if I got the job or not. Today was hands down the greatest job application experience ever. I appreciate the fact that I can sit back and turn this unfortunate negative into a positive.
Create happiness!!! Turn that NEGATIVE into a POSITIVE!!!!
I have always wondered why the phrase, “My strengths are my weakness”, existed. I personally think this phrase can be worded both ways because my weaknesses are sometimes my strengths.
I am a very caring and giving person, sometimes too much. I often hear that this is a weakness of mine. Is it though? Is it weak to have a big heart, to be empathetic, or to care? Or is it a strength of mine that I might need to master?
Our weaknesses are our strengths, own them, and master them. I think the only weakness someone could truly have is giving up, to not live, learn, or take advantage of the opportunities given, to not strive to be the best you can be.
Making a difference in people’s lives does not always consist of a large contribution. Sometimes even the smallest acts of kindness could make the biggest difference.
Make it a goal in the upcoming days to do something nice for someone. Whether it be a stranger or someone you know, take a few seconds to compliment them, or listen to them when they are down.
Do you have toxic people or environments around you? How do you deal with this toxicity in your life?
I know it’s the ideal thing to remove it from your life, but we aren’t able to escape the toxicity completely. So the big question is what is the best way to deal with toxic people or environments?
Needless to say, I don’t have the answer, nor do I think there is only one answer. Somehow we all find our own way to deal, or we don’t, and we just hopefully learn from it.
As for myself, I try to limit the toxicity in my life, as well as, not contributing toxicity to others.
Limit toxicity! Love! Be strong!
It’s so easy to lose focus on your plans and goals. What is the best way you keep on track?
I lose track often, especially when i let certain emotions get involved. Sometimes i have to try to suppress my emotions in order to stay focused on my bigger goals.
Certain situations and people also tend to throw off your focus. Try to steer clear and remain on task.
Goals! Focus! Succeed!
It’s coming up on one month since I started my blog and it has been a real adventure. I have learned so much on this journey, and have also felt kind of free.
It’s great to get my thoughts and ideas out of my head, as well as hopefully providing you with advice, laughter, or just some good reading material. I appreciate all of my followers, visitors, and dedicated readers!
I am also asking for feedback. Tell me if you like what you read, or if you have a topic you would like me to write about. Are my pictures too much or not enough? Is there anything you would like to see in the next upcoming month? Feedback is important! My contact page is a perfect place to drop this feedback or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever watched a person change? Was it for the better or worse?
Many people deal with change differently. If someone did change for the worse are you willing to work through that change or completely cut ties with that person? If it’s changed for the better are you then going to admire that change or be jealous of their advancement?
People change all of the time, some changes are small, while others are big. We choose what we allow to change though. So these changes that occur, are they already decided rather than something that is out of our control?
Allow positive change! Avoid the negative!
You know that fake voice, smile, or conversation that you have with certain people? Why do we choose to put on this fake persona?
Is it noticeable to that other person that you are not being yourself? Do we do this because we dislike that person or because we think they will dislike us?
I am definitely guilty of using my fake voice when talking on the phone with businesses. Most of the time, I don’t even notice I am doing it.
I am going to try to make it a habit that I act more naturally around others.
Be yourself and feel empowered!!!
As the week comes to an end we are always so ready to be done with work, school, or whatever it is that consumes our time.
Always take the time to remind yourself to rest. It doesn’t always have to be in the form of sleep, but give your mind a rest.
Watch a tv show that you have put off watching, or read a chapter of that book you have had on your nightstand. Whatever it is that provides your mind rest, set aside that time on the weekends and allow yourself to de-stress and wind down from the week.
Rest! Relax! Unwind!
Have you ever had one of those really good, deep hugs that makes you feel all fuzzy inside?
What if I told you that it benefits your health to give more hugs? As adults its something we don’t do as often, or if we do we rush through them.
Hugs are a natural stress reliever, and it’s also shown studies to lower blood pressure.
So get out there and get some more hugs!!! Stress-free, good ol’ bear hugs! You deserve a little stress reliever!
