After being on a computer for 8 hours a day, it's usually hard to motivate myself to come home and get on the computer again. Hence, the lack of blog posts. The thing I've always loved about my blog though is that no matter what stage of my life, my blog is always there. Sometimes I have more time, energy, and inspiration to dedicate to it than others. The important thing to me isn't how much I post, but if the posts are something I'm proud of and feel "me." Those are always two items I make sure to check off on my list!
Lately I've been unwinding in the evenings with Jane the Virgin on Netflix. Do any of you watch it? I got through season one within two weeks and am already forging through season two rather quickly. A little two quickly, ha. Can't decide if I'm team #Rafael or team #Michael. It changes every episode!
For my commutes in and out from work on the subway I've been carrying along "Girl Boss" to read. I've read it once before, but figured when I was packing for NYC it would be a good one to bring along as for the next chapter of my life. I'm pretty sure I raved about it the first time I read it, and I'm gonna rave a second. You HAVE to read this book. It's a motivaor, a confidence instiller, and you-can-do-this-you're-a-badass mantra. The advice Sophia gives is so poignant to my life as a 20 something professional trying to find her way...and it's so on point for people in other stages of their life, too. Are you a girl? Do you want to own your life? Then Girl Boss is for you. Even if you're a guy, it's still for you. Kicking butt in your professional life is for all genders.
Anddd final, concluding notes of the evening. It's totally acceptable to eat an entire box of macaroni and cheese by yourself for dinner, Satan created the moring subway commute in NYC, buy plants (surrounding yourself with living things is proven to make you feel better), and being nice won't make you finish last--it'll always put you in the lead before crossing the finish line. x
