3 Things I learned About Starting Over
Been awhile since I’ve written.. thought I’d touch base a bit :)
In the 8 months I’ve moved to this new city… I’ve worked for a startup, started a blog, dated in New York, fell out of love with the blog, quit my job, and run away from Mexico. Feel like I’ve been all over the place, but now… in this moment.. I am excited about pressing the restart button for one more time and sharing my journey.
How to Start Over...
1. Let go of failures
They are anchors preventing you from moving forward. If it doesn’t serve your goal, get rid of it. I spent a lot of time feeling guilty for not seeing my first blog idea through and instead of releasing it from my heart, I wasted a lot of time wishing I sought it through.
2. Where you spend your time is where your passion will be.
Compared to 37% of Gen X & Baby Boomers, 57% of millennials want to work for something other than money, fulfillment. It’s ok to not know what you want to do with your life, but if each day is like a penny… where we give our time is where we find our passion. I started spending time reaching out to people I looked up to. Connecting with them over coffee and finding inspiration in their passion. When you find a mentor, it makes your dreams feel possible.
3. Say “No”
When I first moved to New York, I think meeting up with friends and being social should have been added to my resume. I would spend hours in traffic to make that 20 minute Starbucks date. Playing off of #2… investing time in others is more for them then it is for you.
I still need to be reminded of these three nuggets.
So next time I see you please remind me :)
