Last year this happened – my second flat tire in six months. I wasn’t exactly an optimist last year, let alone a grand one.
Today I got this email (from Timehop), you might have to click on the picture to read it better…
I don’t know why I felt something while reading that email. I mean really, it’s just a little dinosaur telling me to GO CONQUER MY DAY (and I am probably not the only person with a Timehop account that got that email) but there is something true in those words. Last year I didn’t feel challenged and let’s be honest I haven’t really been grabbing anything by the horns within the last 8 months. Maybe the issue is that I am not 100% sure where I want to be or what I want to do. What job am I going to be looking for? Is it going to be downtown? Am I going to be writing? Yes. I hope. What about working for a magazine and working on a BOMB novel on the side? Yeah, that sounds awesome. I also want to be apart of some kind of organization that will help teens, or kids. Like the Love is Louder movement, how cool would it be to be apart of that? Or read stories to kids at the local library, that’d be pretty cool too.
I think I need to research jobs and volunteer avenues. I think I need to network PROPERLY and get my stuff out there. I think I need to make a plan and being an optimist will be a huge part of if.
Make a plan. Grab life by the horns.
Conquer your day.
It is YOUR life after all.
