It's a pretty serious question that you probably just instantly thought to yourself, "Yes" or "...no." For me, the answer right now is YES!! but it wasn't always that way.
Exactly one year ago I remember coming home from a hard shift at work and SOBBING. I hated my job, my future felt bleak, and everything was a giant question mark. I wasn't happy and I didn't know how to be happy with my current situation. It's moments like those that you have to sit back and ask yourself, Why am I NOT happy with my life? Sometimes the answers are obvious: i.e. I hate my job. but sometimes they aren't.
That is why today I am sharing my top 3 tips on how to be happy with your life right now!
This is video 2 of 4 so be sure to hit my video from last week as well about being happy with YOURSELF (the blog post right before this one).
I'm so jazzed about happiness! Here's to you finding yours!
"I will be happy when...." Do you ever say that? I know I am a guilty culprit! I have said this FAR too many times. It's just so....easy. It's easy to put off being happy until something happens. It's easy to wish you had things right now that are sitting out there on the horizon of your future. It's easy to wait and wonder when will "happy" find you.
But the terrifying thing is that if you keep putting happiness off, it will never come. Yes, you will finally graduate college, get marries, find a great job, make more money, have nicer things, BUT by the time those things happen you are already looking past them to the happiness awaiting you someday.
Recently I've been thinking a lot about this. Right now life is a little stressful and I have caught myself multiple times saying, "I will be happy when...(fill in the blank with whatever your solution is)".
I don't want to live my life like that, and I bet you don't either. That is why I've given a lot of thought to how to increase my...
Confession: This week I felt so incredibly OVERWHELMED. I had a million projects I wanted/had to do, work to do, yard work, car troubles, content to create, and somehow fit in some time to be with family. With all those things swirling around in my head and my to-do list looking a mile long, I felt anxious, irritable, and…well overwhelmed.
I think all of us can relate to those feelings. We feel on top of the world and even thrive off of being productive and busy, until we hit our breaking point. And man, I hit mine. So in my mad and frazzled state, I started editing my video for this week. The topic: How to Overcome Fear and Anxiety.
Wow. Talk about a reminder to live what I practice. Working on and watching this week’s video helped ME remember how to turn anxiety and fear into excitement, and how to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
So I am so excited to share this video with you because if you are like me, and regularly feel overwhelmed and anxious this video is for you!
You've done it. All of those years of hard work and MONEY have paid off! You are a college graduate and now you are off to build your career and leave your mark on the world. But if you've started your job search yet you might notice one tiny little problem...it's HARD getting your first job!
I remember facing rejection after rejection. Some jobs, I didn't even make it to the in-person interview. I felt like I was getting lost in the job-list cyber space.
Interview after interview is asking for experience, but you've been at school...and you are now competing with nearly the whole graduating class for the top jobs in the market. It can be a daunting task to land that great first job, and for that reason many college grads get discouraged.
That is why I put together my top tips for getting a career-building job right after you graduate college. In the video below you will learn the skills it is going to take to get your first job. And while it won't be easy, you will be able to have the...
