An Ode To Ironing

My mother made me iron our sheets when I was a kid. I’m pretty sure it was a form of child abuse.

Life Less Complicated

Great post! There is nothing worse than being in a job you despise. You really have to double down and find a better fitting position. I was miserable in my last job. I looked for months to get the hell out of there. I found a great new job on Craigslist of all places. I actually enjoy going to work now, and love the culture of my new employer.

Becoming a Minimalist

Are you working at a job you hate? Does the stress overwhelm you to the point you find it hard to breathe?

How did you get to this?

Sometimes we just need a job, any job to maintain our lifestyle or maybe we entered into it thinking it was going to be great, then reality set in. Maybe you’re trapped by your experience because you specialized and now you’re burned out. What can you do?

*Take chances
Granted, most of us have to have a paycheck to survive but we can apply for jobs that are outside the box.

*Take less money
Money can’t buy happiness. If taking a job that makes less money means you’ll also be happier with less stress and anxiety then think seriously about doing it.

Are You On Clearance?

I’ll never be on clearance, as I try to avoid people who are negative. They do suck the life out of a room.

Orlando Espinosa

How many of you spend your days listening to other people’s perception of you, whether they’re friends, family or colleagues who devote their efforts trying to devalue your talents/gifts?

Too often people bask in this sea of negativity and try to figure out why their life is mediocre or unfulfilling.

Have you ever wondered why? Could it be their insecurities or your own?

Maybe the reason why people devalue you is because you’ve placed yourself on the clearance rack?

Your price tag has been marked down and you’ve become the bargain basement special.

There has to come a point in your life when your own self-worth shouldn’t be determined by others, but by yourself.

If the value you place on yourself is small, rest assured the world will not raise your price.
