Reblog Wednesday: 7 Things We Can Learn From Jeff Bezos — Savvy 101 Life

I appreciate a good coming up journey. You know, the one where the person comes from nothing and is determined to make their dream a reality?! Because what’s a dream if not something that can come true – just a dream. It’s that mountain, that obstacle that needs to be moved in order for us to take that first step forward. Often times they refer to it as the push, that leap of faith, but whatever it is, people like Jeff Bezos are an example of the dream made a reality.

The post I share with you today is full of  interesting facts from the man behind Amazon. It is absolutely interesting and nothing short of amazing! And if you haven’t been to Savvy 101 Life, please go by, he’s full of inspirational posts, especially for that entrepreneur in us that’s itching to come out!

We often times have heard, ‘if I can do it, you can do it,’ well it’s true, it really is! I think there also differences between people like Jeff Bezos or Walt Disney or many others and the regular ‘Joe.’ They’ve had one idea that helped them rise in business and have had determination to see it become a reality.

As many many know already, I started my YouTube channel not too long ago. What you may not have known, is that this has been years and years in the ‘thinking.’ Yes! What kept me from taking that step into creating the channel, well your guess is better than mine! But, fear is up there. It’s up there, along with self-doubt. If you’re thinking of starting your very own YouTube channel, my best advice to you would be, just start! You’ll never be fully ready and you’ll never build enough courage to begin, so just do it, and you’ll soon find your jitters settle. You’ll buy the necessary tools as you go, you’ll get things together and invest as you go as it’ll all happen with time.

I can’t even tell you what I had for lunch today, because my day is a little jammed with the good ‘ole mommy to do’s. But one thing that changed last month was my mind set. I began thinking one day of my ‘Nail File Friday’s’ here on the blog and thought about merging it into a YouTube channel and before I could second guess myself, I put the thought into work! I just started it one night. That one night has turned into 19 videos and counting. And I’m all for ‘hobbies’ and ‘having fun’ while doing something you love, but let me be honest, I have little ones still in diapers! So, while I’m having fun, I’m also thinking long term. My goal is to be able to profit off the channel, not tomorrow, nope – I give it a few years! However, the day will come when good ‘ole nail painting will bring this mama some green. Because saying otherwise would only be deceiving. Here’s to you making your dream a reality – big or small.

The Richest Man In The World “The richest man in the world”, sounds great, right? But there’s more to say about Jeff Bezos than that well-earned nickname. It all started in 1994 with the decision of taking a step further from his already successful life. Jeff had an idea that wouldn’t let him sleep until […]

This quote here by Helen Keller reminds me to be grateful and be present – in the moment. Often times I’m looking at you but I’m not listening to you. There’s so much distraction and chaos that surrounds me that my mind is running far too quickly to stop and as the saying goes, ‘to smell the roses.’ There have been events in my life that could have broken me and taken me to the point of no return, like a separation, a breakup, my son’s autism diagnosis or my own Chiari + Syringomyelia diagnosis. But in the midst of this unknown I’ve seen the beauty that lies within these events. The fact that my son is such a wonderful boy, so beautiful, so sweet or the fact that after my diagnosis, I’m finally learning to slow down. It’s through life’s unprecedented events that I’ve seen my own strength. I’ve also seen the beauty that comes after the storm has passed, like when my two youngest babies were discharged from NICU – Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. What a joyous day that was, to have seen them going in so tiny and fragile, and then come out victorious.

The world has too many things to offer that will never fill a void in the heart. There have been too many times when I’ve attempted to do that, given in to the worlds offerings, only to be disappointed. When I’ve finally led with my heart, my heart is full – satisfied and content. As I read the quote below by Helen Keller, I could only remember something I’d heard a while ago ….

The best things is life, aren’t things.

Indeed!

This post here in was full of truth. I’ve always thought that often times, I am my own worst critic. I live with chronic pain which in return is followed by self-doubt. I try not to blame others for my physical pain and diagnosis, you know, answer with an attitude or be harsh, after all it’s no one’s fault as to what I’m feeling. I’ve also seen that when I want to start something new, have an idea for something, I am quick to have reasons as to why I can’t do it – before it even begins. I begin to write up a list in my mind as to why I can’t reach things, won’t achieve them and in turn my ideas go to waste, the opportunity slips away. This mountain that is often full of pain and anger, it’s full of negativity, of self doubt and unaccomplished things. Maybe it’s due to my diagnosis, or my son’s autism diagnosis or just a combination of many things. Nonetheless, this is the mountain that I always try to move for myself – daily. It has to be done, otherwise, this mountain can turn into depression, anxiety, and instead of climbing it, I can fall from it. This is a mountain that often goes unseen by others, but that I feel deep in my soul.

Fortunately, with age comes wisdom, faith and hope. The wisdom to know when I need to stop the negative thinking, the faith of knowing that all things can be done through Him, and the hope of knowing that there will always be light, as long as I’m willing to see it.

Do you have mountains, how do you move them?

Reblog Wednesday: Badass — Real Life of an MSW

There have been so many moments in my life where there has been self doubt. The moments where I think of doing something and I hold myself back. Because as the saying goes, ‘I am my own worst critic.’

The negative thoughts often are too hard to avoid and the positives are often hard to believe.

If I’ve ever thought of starting to live, to breathe, to be free in my own skin, I think that time is now. The time to take the leap, the jump, that jump that’s going to take me to where I want to be, that time is now. I was reading a story on a Texan woman police officer, she was and still holds the record for being the oldest woman to ever been sworn in the academy in her city, at the age of 54. Her story was both astonishing as it was inspiring.

In the few months that I’ve been blogging many have touched my heart, inspired me and motivated me, as living with Chiari + Syringomyelia can really take a toll to ones spirit. But as I battle my days with chronic pain, this post by Real Life Of An MSW was a great reminder of the abilities that lies within a woman. It reads, ‘a badass woman starts her projects …. doesn’t wait for an invitation.’ This here reminded me of how regardless of my physical pain, everyday I still need to continue to push through – keep pushing. Since I began my journey here – I’ve surprised myself more than anyone, I’ve open an online shop and just very recently Simple Nail Designs – my YouTube channel.

What the mind can overcome when the will to thrive rises.

It’s also a reminder that a woman is far greater than anything, far greater than she can even imagine, she’s strong, she’s powerful, she’s determined, because she’s simply, ‘a badass.’

Happy Wednesday.

A Badass woman doesn’t wait for people to ask her to do something or notice how great she is, she says. She starts her projects, take up space, or raise her hand because she doesn’t have to wait for an invitation. -Jennifer Baumgardener Positively Purging-I welcome your feedbacks in the comments and your likes […]

Reblog Wednesday: Weekly Wisdom 13 September — MiddleMe

If you’re new to my blog, Reblog Wednesday’s is to show my appreciation to a post that deeply meant something to me. This week, I chose Kally from Middle Me. She has worked in many fields, from education, to healthcare, to IT and advertising. She is also full of such great advice in topics such as work place environment, interviewing and education – like switching majors. Interesting right, yes, I think so too.

This post she recently shared, speaks so much truth and touched my heart. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to share with you. A little truth about me, after a difficult break up, I became lost and soon after, pregnant with my first child. I was young – 22 years old, so lost, broken and pregnant. I had a great position at a prestigious law firm, but my heart was broken and my soul empty. I was lost and I didn’t know how to find myself again in the midst of that breakup, I was living in complete darkness.

Today, I am so thankful – as I was the day I found out I was pregnant, thankful for my daughter. It was nothing I ‘planned,’ but in retrospect I know that pregnancy saved me, she saved me – from myself. He knew how to save me, He was right.

It took that ‘fall’, that event in my life, for me to build the courage to rise again, to get back on track, to get my sh&sh together and learn to live again.

What event’s in your life have given you a ‘good fall’? Those unseen bruises, those bumps – some larger than others, both though of which have served for a better good in your life.

Reblog Wednesday: No Perfect Answer — MakeItUltra™

This ‘Reblog Wednesday’ comes from Dr. Perry, his blog is so motivational. Do you ever go about your day questioning certain things in your life? Do you ever get them answered, perhaps some you do, while others you don’t. This quote reminds me of how there have been too many times to count the days where my questions go unanswered. At times I question many things most often when I’m in a doctor’s appointment waiting to be called, during an MRI exam or a CT Scan, etc. These specific events always take me back to a place I often don’t like to revisit. In particular the why’s of my Chiari and Syringomyelia diagnosis, why not, after all, I am that 1 in 1,000. And maybe this isn’t the case for you, maybe you have unanswered questions about the loss of a job, heartbreak, a breakup, a medical diagnosis for yourself or someone you know, whatever the case maybe, this quote comes to relieve you of that stress. I am a true believer that in God’s hands is where it all must go, and with this comes freedom.

Freedom is, when you stay in the now and leave tomorrow for tomorrow.

And as the quote continues to read, ‘there may very well be no perfect answer.’ He’s absolutely right, as stubborn as I am, even if I did get an answer as to why I am that 1 in 1,000 the answer may very well not be enough for me.

If I can’t change my diagnosis, at least I can change my perspective.

Happy Wednesday.
