A collection of some of my favorite inspirational quotes to make your day (slash-life) a little better.
The Way Things Are is, quite frankly, a shitty story to live by. So why do so many of us resign ourselves to it?
You can’t compare your skills against someone else’s. All that matters is that you do what you were designed to do—and you do the everloving shit out of it.
We constantly sell ourselves short, downplay our skills and accomplishments, and kowtow to whatever crapportunity is tossed our way. I call “Bullshit!”
That little patch of life you think is all that’s out there for you? It’s an illusion. Here’s how to break free.
It’s been a long and winding (and often crazy) road, but I’ve finally reached the Quit of Quits. I know, I don’t fully believe it yet, either.
The way things turn out after a setback is determined largely by the way you choose react to it. This week, I get to test that out something fierce.
Taking stock of how far I’ve come, and what that means for anyone hoping to restart their dreams.
Holy freakin’ schmoley. The holidays are over, the New Year is here, and we’re all revved up to make it the best, most tail-kicking year we’ve had yet. And if you’re anything like me, you’re staring at your huge list of things you can’t wait to do/make/be this year, and you’re thinking: How in the frack will I have time for all of this?? Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret: You have the time. Plenty of it. You just aren’t using it right. We Doth Protest “But, Cordelia!” you say. “You don’t understand! I have a job, kids, errands, hobbies, 12 foster cats…I’m absolutely swamped! I’m lucky if I have time to eat!” Well, anonymous italicized commenter I’m imagining in my head, if that really is the case, then you need to trim something, stat. I know ultra-frazzled busyness is a badge of honor today, but you have to at least be able to eat, sleep, and breathe on a semi-regular basis. I mean it. Delegate the errands, foster a few less felines, and learn to be kinder to yourself. I’ll write you a fake doctor’s note if you’re the kind that won’t slow down until someone absolutely orders you to do it. For the rest of you who do have time to eat (and accomplish a few other things), I repeat my original statement: You have the time. Whatever your dream is, whatever you oh-so-wish you could pursue but just don’t know how you’ll manage to squeeze it in, you’ve got time. You’re just choosing to spend it somewhere else at the moment. Don’t make that face at me. I don’t like to think of getting rid of any of my “must dos” any more than you do. But sometimes you have to. It’s a matter…
I’ve officially requested one day off work each week to focus more on my writing—and my boss agreed to it! Here’s how I did it and what I learned from it.
