The Truth Is I Haven’t Always Been So Positive

Sometimes I look back and reflect on some of the things I’ve done. All the time I had that could have went to my dream or something else was wasted.

I didn’t want to change into something better than myself to get where I wanted.

I might’ve thought about changing, but change can’t come from just your thoughts – You have to want it. Be true with yourself and it’ll come out as something beneficial to you.

You have to want it AND follow-up on that. Good luck if you’re trying to change!

Dream Big, Dream Often

DannyAbout once per week I’ll get an email asking me how I maintain such a positive attitude. And I get enough of these emails to make me believe people view me as being a positive person, although, I don’t view myself as a positive person.  The truth is I haven’t always been so positive.

In 2007 I began working for Dick’s Sporting Goods as a PGA Professional.  My job was to manage the golf shop staff, keep the shop stocked with the appropriate types of merchandise, inventory and maintain customer service levels.  For anyone who has worked retail, this short story should register with you.

The Gift of Self-Acceptance

I preach self-worth all the time. 

You gotta love yaself before you love somebody else!!

Nothing, but the truth right there!

Niki Meadows

Somewhere along the journey of my life, I started to see the flaws in myself and that was all I was able to see. From looking in the mirror to looking within, all I saw was what was wrong.

In My Twenties

There are many people who do not care for their own well-being. My mom is like that with her family, especially my sisters and I. I tell her all the time to spend money and time on herself all the time, but she doesn’t hear the message. 

Faye is spreading a message with her own observations with self-care (hope I’m using the right words here for your post Faye)

If you need some inspiration, motivation, feel like you deal with the issue of not caring for yourself enough, please take a look at Faye’s post.

Wish her a happy birthday as well y’all!

Culture Eighteen.

It’s my 20th birthday today. And my twenties are going to be my selfish years.

Not out of spite/resentment, but as a form of self-affirmation.

The way I see it, these few years ahead are crucial. Theyare mine to mould, craft and shape in whatever direction I see fit. Personally and professionally. To choose me before others. Unapologetically. To use what I’ve previously learnt, through trials and tribulations of my teenage self, and manipulate those lessons to drive me forward. To not look at a mistake and see failure but to recognise the opportunity for growth and improvement. To live and let live.
