Happy Monday, y’all! Monday is not the day to get back to the grindstone. Monday is the day to be back at your passion. If you’re working for the weekend, you’re doing it wrong. With that said, kiss ass every day.
If it hasn’t been evident before, I hope it is now– I am a proud Millennial. I am an advocate for Millennials. Unfortunately, Millennials get a bad reputation but I am sure that is that case with most rising-star generations. Being a Millennial is tough work, everyone is always downplaying your abilities and shooing you to the wayside. To make an impact, we need to focus on the positives. An article written by Global CEO of Deloitte Touche Tohmastu Limited, Barry Slazberg, recently wrote an article about Millenials. To be honest, going into the article I was skeptical, however, after reading the article I was pleasantly surprised.
Millennials are ready to go their own way
Millennials want to make a difference
Millennials want to be leaders
Millennials want to be innovative
Millennials expect businesses to care
I support all of these findings. As a Millennial, I find it hard to stick with things that have always been. I want to pave my own path and create my own future. Sure, it’s not going to be easy to create my own path, but then again who said life was easy?
I have this beautiful card sitting on my desk. This card is a reminder to do great things. It’s a reminder that life is short and a beautiful thing.
“This is your life. Do what you want and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over-analysing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Life is simple.
Open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people, we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.
Life is short, live your dream and wear your passion.”
After dragging my feet and having a ho-hum attitude towards my job search and current job situation, the perfect pep talk happened. This pep talk could not have occurred at a more perfect moment. Now, I cannot tell you the exact conversation, but let’s just say the following phrase sums it up, “It might take a year, it might take a day, but what’s meant to be will always find its way.”
I have faith that everything will work out exactly how it is supposed to. Things will all fall into place and everything will be great. But keep this in mind, in order for everything to work out (no matter how long it takes), you have to keep pushing, you have to be your biggest fan, and you have to get up every time after you’re knocked down.
Folks, don’t take little things for granted. One conversation could change everything – all you have to do is listen.
