Day 26: Alignment, Huh?

Alignment. It has a word I have been hearing about a lot lately in my search for meaning…or rather my search to get more of what I “want” out of my life. Dictionary.com defines it has “arrangement in a straight line, or in correct or appropriate relative positions” or “a position of agreement or alliance.”Continue reading “Day 26: Alignment, Huh?”

Day 25: Anotha Day Anotha Dollarr

Yesterday, I was challenged regarding a few of my goals. It was 9:00 PM and I hadn’t done my blog post or my workout for the day. I have completed 6 weeks of my workout, without skipping, and have also completed 25 days (as of today) of blogging 500 words every day. I was notContinue reading “Day 25: Anotha Day Anotha Dollarr”

Day 24: Last Minute Posts

Today I am posting at the very end of my day. I did not prioritize my 500 words, and I am regretting it so much! Ah, cest la vie. But, here I am…doing it at 9:15 PM after a long day (I am a grandmother). Last night, I had too much fun, which left meContinue reading “Day 24: Last Minute Posts”

Day 23: Oprah Says Surrender

My posts for the past few days have centered around surrender, particularly in regards to my professional path. Since having started to post about this, I am realizing (again) how important the concept and the action of surrender is. In the past few months, I have started listening to Oprah’s podcasts. While I haven’t beenContinue reading “Day 23: Oprah Says Surrender”

Day 22: Does surrender make a difference in your career?

I wrote in my post yesterday about Eckhart Tolle’s perspective on presence in the your work or your career.

Day 21: What is a Meaningful Career?

I have become a pretty avid listener of Eckhart Tolle. He has some great advice that resonates with me, so perhaps it will resonate with you. Start with where you are. Accept the moment. Surrender. TRULY surrender to presence. Be present in every moment. Do one thing at a time at work, bringing in theContinue reading “Day 21: What is a Meaningful Career?”

Day 20: The Mind Needs Problems

I just went for a walk to break up the work day, lamenting all of the things that annoyed me about the day. I thought about Eckhart Tolle and the spiritual learnings I have been exposed to the past few weeks.

Day 19: Why are we so afraid to try new things?

As I set out to write my day 19 post, I was wondering why so many of us are afraid of trying new things. So, to set things off, I just googled this very question to see what came up. Psychology Today claimed spot number 1 on google. According to this blog post, studies showContinue reading “Day 19: Why are we so afraid to try new things?”

Day 18: Pizza and Ponders

Last night, I ate a lot of terrible pizza and cheesy bread. Pizza, even when bad, it’s good. This was kind of like that. My man and I came home from a fun, little evening out and decided we had just enough of the giggle juice to order some pizza from a place we didn’tContinue reading “Day 18: Pizza and Ponders”

Day 17: Books, America, Yeah- Keep Reading!

It is day 17 of #my500words, and I am in a slump. I have a lot happening in my brain these days, but my day to day feels uneventful. I worked from my apartment all day every day last week and found the experience to be restorative mostly. I welcomed the arrival of my boyfriendContinue reading “Day 17: Books, America, Yeah- Keep Reading!”
