- “Stop over analyzing, life is simple.” - I made a promise to myself to live more in the moment instead of wishing for a future I wasn’t working toward. An analyst by trade and training, I’m slowly learning to shut off the excess and noisy thoughts that come with over-analyzing.
- “When you eat, appreciate every last bite.” - Cook more, eat out less. Create relationships with people who grow or sell you your food. Go to the farmers market more often. Buy local. Eat slowly and at a table.
- “Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them.” - Create a networking group for young women who may be feeling the same way I did (I launched it in May of 2012 and it’s going strong!). Make this the first question you ask strangers when you meet them.
- “…so go out and start creating.” Stop denying your talents and start reveling in them. Pretending that working with data and spreadsheets is fine when you would rather help launch wellness-based businesses and create designs that inspire health is not okay. Own up and live in what you love. A job can be fun and filled with passion.
